Beginning next year, Adhesive Games' gloriously good looking mech combat game will be getting a pretty spiffy-looking live-action web series from Warner Premiere and DJ2 Entertainment. The series stars Edi Gathegi, Gonzalo Menendez, Dameon Clark, and Hannah Hall, and is directed by Gears of War art director Jeremiah O'Flaherty, his first live-action credit.
Based on the trailer, it looks like a squad of mech pilots will be tasked with seeking out a missing VIP who has the secret to curing the Hawken virus which has decimated the planet with crystalline structures.
The Hawken web series will debut on Machinima's YouTube channel in 2013.
