Los Angeles, CA (Dec. 12, 2012) – Coinciding with the 12.12.12 (Dec. 12, 2012) start of the highly anticipated Open Beta Event for the online video game HAWKEN, award-winning graphic novel publisher Archaia Entertainment and free-to-play video game publisher Meteor Entertainment have teamed up with comiXology – the revolutionary digital comics platform – to digitally debut the second of four, free exclusive digital preview issues of HAWKEN: GENESIS, a forthcoming hardcover graphic novel based on the game.

This exclusive preview is available across comiXology’s entire digital comics platform including the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, and the Web. Any time someone downloads the free HAWKEN: GENESIS second preview on comiXology starting 12.12.12 and until 12 a.m. PT on Jan. 1, 2013, they will receive 2,000 HAWKEN Credits that they can use to buy fun items, such as upgrades and accessories in HAWKEN.

“Cat and Mouse,” the second exclusive comiXology digital preview, is written by Jeremy Barlow (Mass Effect, Star Wars) with concept by Khang Le and story by Dan Jevons.

HAWKEN is the award-winning, multiplayer, first-person shooter (FPS) game for PC published by Meteor Entertainment. HAWKEN puts players in the pilot seat of a futuristic war machine. Debuting in open beta 12.12.12 (December 12th), players can customize and upgrade their mechs from a wealth of accessories and styles. Players can then join on the battlefield to rain destruction across HAWKEN’s beautiful and immersive landscapes. And most exciting of all, HAWKEN is free-to-play.
