Hawken Christmas map teased. Fingers crossed for mech-sized Father Christmas hats

hawken_christmas_map_adhesive_games

It’s just not Christmas without mechs dragging giant sleighs packed with motor oil for the good baby mechs and cod liver oil for the bad baby mechs (a far inferior mechanical lubricant). So it’s happy, happy news that Adhesive games seem to be hinting at a Christmas themed map being released in time for Christmas so we can play on Christmas day when we’re feeling all Christmassy.

It’s very much a tease at the moment instead of a blizzard of details.

Can you make heads of tails of this corrupted emergency transmission?

We fed it into one of our interns and all the said was “Noooooooooooo”.

Of course, we fired himon the spot.

Silly intern.
