Ubisoft Reveals High-Flying Details For Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2
Flight fans may be a little disappointed that Ace Combat hasn't come to the PlayStation 3 just yet, but there are other quality titles out there.
And another will be winging our way this fall. Today, Ubisoft released more details for the upcoming sequel, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2, which will require all your "finely honed reflexes" to conquer. Ubisoft Bucharest has jammed an impressive amount of technology into this one; featuring everything from the F-35's vectored thrust capability to the "ultra-secret Enhanced Reality System," H.A.W.X. 2 may be one of the more satisfying flight titles ever. Locales include Moscow, the Persian Gulf, the Arctic Circle, and the Indian Ocean, and they all boast "high-resolution GeoEye commercial satellite imagery." As for air warfare, here's what to expect:
- Go head-to-head in close-range dogfights
- Take off and land on bases and carriers
- Sweat through night precision bombing
- Track your targets using silent UAV's then strike from above
- Use air-to-air refueling in the middle of missions
Although it's hardly the biggest genre out there, flight games can be excellent, invigorating experiences. It appears Ubisoft is headed in the right direction with Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 and we'll be all sorts of interested in giving it a try...
