Another practice that is starting to become common place is the development of companion apps for games. There are already plenty of them available for a variety of games from World of Warcraft to the Ghost Recon Network app. Now the Playstation 3 game Starhawk has its own companion application called Starhawk Uplink.
As with most companion applications that are released, you will be able to check your stats, clan stats, the latest news and announcements as well as the latest community news and events. Interestingly enough you are not required to own a Playstation 3 or have a Playstation Network ID to use this application.
Starhawk Uplink Features:
– My Player: View your player & weapon stats from Starhawk
– Players: View stats for your PSN friends, clanmates and players you meet online.
– Announcements: Get the latest game news and announcements instantly.
– News Ticker: Get news and Starhawk updates in real time!
– Leaderboards: See how you rank against your friends, clanmates, and the rest of the Starhawk community.
– Clan Information: View clan invitations, leaderboards and statistics, and search for new clans to join or challenge.
– Community: Players can link to various Starhawk social sites including Facebook, Twitter, The official Starhawk blog, PlayStation blog as well as directly link to promotional videos and other Starhawk community driven sites.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Starhawk game, it is a 3rd person shooter for the Playstation 3 that recently came out. Set in the future, factions battle of Rift Energy which is now the most sought after resource. There is the new “Build & Battle” system and you can gain the tactical advantage by calling upon an arsenal of weapons, vehicles, and fortifications, violently delivered from an orbiting drop ship. Starhawk also features 32 player multiplayer maps as well.
If you play Starhawk already and like to keep track of everything then you’ll probably want to grab this new companion app. Starhawk Uplink is available for free off of the Google Play store or through our Google Play synced catalog.
