Starhawk is a rumored Stereoscopic 3D multiplayer third-person shooter, vehicle- and flight-combat game in development by Lightbox Interactive exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Starhawk is rumored to be the sequel to the blockbuster video game, Warhawk, created by the now-dissolved Incognito Entertainment. Currently, there is no official information on the rumored game. Furthermore, Starhawk has not been announced.
Although the video game has not been publicly revealed or announced, Starhawk is heavily believed to be in development. This can attributed to the massive publication via video game news websites of Sony trademarking the name 'Starhawk' in early 2009. In addition, the founder of Lightbox Interactive, Dylan Jobe, is widely known to place announcements of "milestone completions" for his video game on his Twitter page. Despite these finds, discussion of a possible Warhawk sequel is nevertheless speculation.
Starhawk is rumored to contain a single player story mode, but no evidence has been brought forth on the subject. In addition to a rumored story mode, Starhawk may support online multiplayer gameplay. The multiplayer feature, if available, will allow anywhere from 32 to 64 players to play at one time.
Starhawk is a 1977 vector arcade game by Cinematronics. Starhawk is a shoot 'em up with a fixed environment. The game was unique at the time as it presented the graphics in a pseudo-three dimensional way. Essentially, the game is a simple video game version of the Star Wars: Episode IV trench run. The game was later ported to the Vectrex video game console in 1982. The game is remembered as having quite advanced graphics for the time and being the first video game based upon or to have noticeable references to Star Wars.
Starhawk (Stakar of the House of Ogord) is a fictional character created by Steve Gerber (writer) and Sal Buscema (artist). He is an antihero in the Earth-691 timeline of the Marvel Comics universe.
Stakar was fated to eventually re-inhabit his infant body, reliving his life over countless times. Because of the knowledge of things to come, he manipulated events to affect what he felt would be the best outcome, referring to himself as "One Who Knows". He made many enemies in doing so, but his tampering and guidance also led to the formation of the Guardians of the Galaxy in the 31st Century.
Upon receiving his power from the Hawk God, Starhawk identified himself and summarized his purpose by saying "I am the wisdom and the glory of your ancestors. I am the light and the giver of light. I am your heritage and your destiny! I am the POWER that was Arcturus!"!
