Starhawk’s release of 1.3 gives us a first look at clan management. – UPDATED
As you can imagine here at Urgent Fury, our community members are always first to look at clan management when it comes to the next shooter title to grace their inventory.
Well Starhawk is no different, many of us have asked for more info when it comes to the clan management, and Starhawk delivers. Not in talk or bullet points, but in hands on!!! With the release of version 1.3 of the beta, you are able to get your grubby little hands on some clan management action.
We have put a little video together so you can watch the set up and invite process involved with Starhawk:
A few of the new features to point out:
- Clan Tags can contain five (5) characters
- Give members Clan Titles
- Top Pilot
- Top Driver
- Chief Builder
- Most Deadly
- Clan Banners
Now there is an Elite Clan Code box in the clan banner section, and we are looking to get more details about this function.
Over all the clan management is sleek and very easy to use, almost back to the basics that we all have been looking for. Invitations can be sent via the Social bar, in-game and by typing the name. Clans are able to post Clan news, check out the leader boards and even see the overall KDR of your clan.
Now this is just the first look and it may not represent the final version, but even at this stage it is better than most games that have come out over the last year.
We are giving you the scoop on the “Elite Clan Code Option” in a conversation today with Harvard Bonin, Jr. today he revealed what this is going to be used for:
“We are creating unique banners for long time, special clans. We will give them a number that allows the clan officer to access that special banner. No one else in the world will have that banner.”
The Starhawk team will be choosing the clans that receive this, is your Clan one of the Elite? Only time will tell.
It is little things like this that shows how much the Santa Monica Studios and Lightbox Interactive Teams actually do care about their community. This is another first that we have seen, and well we think it is BADA$$.
