Sony has announced via their PlayStation Blog that LightBox Interactive and Sony Santa Monica’s PS3-exclusive vehicular mayhem/space shooter, Starhawk, will launch on May 8, 2012.

In addition to the launch date news, Sony is pleased to announce the Starhawk public beta goes live today for PlayStation Plus subscribers and those who participated in the game’s private beta a few weeks back.

Players who bought a copy of Uncharted 3 with the Starhawk beta voucher inside will be able to join the beta party on January 31st, while all other PlayStation Network users will have to wait until February 21st to see what all the hype is about.


Having dabbled in a bit of Starhawk at various conventions and through the private beta, I can say that the multiplayer experience is quite exhilarating. There’s nothing like cratering an enemy with your spawn drop pod; it provides a feeling of satisfaction that never seems to get old.

Stay tuned to CraveOnline’s gaming channel for more on Starhawk in the coming days, including a special Watch Us Play focusing on the game’s beta.
