Santa Monica Calif. – May 16, 2008 – GGL and Sony Computer Entertainment America have teamed up to bring you an Official Warhawk Team Tournament, where the top squad can win Warhawk Limited Edition Statues from Gentle Giants Studios (ARV $50 each) and an in-game special weapon called the Champion's Blade! This weapon is awarded exclusively to tournament winners and cannot be acquired any other way. It replaces the knife weapon in game and looks completely different so that everyone you encounter will know you won the tournament.
A Practice Ladder is open now, so jump in, form your team, and start challenging and playing opponents. On 5/27/08 the Practice Ladder will be reset (all squads' records and points set to 0), and we will start the official Ladder Stage. You can challenge other squads, play matches, and move up and down the ladder. Points are awarded not only for winning, but also just for playing, so the more you play the better you will do! At the end of the Ladder Stage on 6/29/08, the top 32 squads will advance to a single-elimination bracket, and the winner of the Bracket Stage takes home the prize!
This is a team tournament, but you and your opponents can agree on the number of players on each side before each match. If you need help finding players for your squad, you can try our "Find/Form a Squad" forum. This prize tournament is open to U.S. residents only, but Warhawk players from anywhere in the world are welcome to join open competition ladders on GGL's Warhawk Game Group (http://www.ggl.com/groups/warhawk_game_group).
Warhawk is PS3 gaming at its finest – three ground vehicles, two air vehicles, three turrets, lots of unique vehicle weapons and gorgeous high definition game play combine to make this an awesome and heart pounding tournament. And if you love the game, you'll love the unique Warhawk-specific prizing.
Join now, invite your friends, form your squad, challenge opponents, and play!
