Lightbox Interactive’s upcoming PS3 exclusive Starhawk may primarily be a multiplayer focused affair, but the game will also boast a comprehensive single-player campaign to boot.

Not your average Harley-Davidson
Sony’s upped the ongoing Starhawk beta to version 1.3, bringing with it some new goodies along the way.

Build to kill
It’s only a matter of time before Starhawk’s brilliant “Build and Battle” mechanics get stolen. Lightbox Interactive has managed to succeed where so many other developers have failed: blend the accessibility of a third-person shooter with the depth of a real-time strategy game.
