Tom Clancy's High Altitude Warfare X

For:

Xbox 360
Playstation 3
Games for Windows

To be released: March 2009

H.A.W.X. includes over 50 planes available for aerial warfare. It is set in 2012 in a world increasingly dependent on private military companies (PMCs). As these non-governmental organizations gain power, global conflict erupts with one powerful PMC attacking the United States.

The game features an Enhanced Reality System (ERS), which can include radars, incoming missile detection, an anti-crash system, damage control system, tactical map, information relay, weapons trajectory control and the ability to give commands to an AI squadron. When fully activated, ERS provides assistance to the player. Some or all of these assists can be turned off to make the game more difficult.

H.A.W.X. supports four-player co-op throughout the campaign. Players can join other players games on-the-fly. There is also a versus mode where up to 16 players can battle online for experience points and in-game cash, to unlock new weapons.
Game was just put into full detail today. This looks like one of the first PC Combat Flight Simulators that'll really take off. It's for the 360 and PS3 as well, but God knows simulators on consoles blow hard.

From IGN:

April 2, 2008 - Ubisoft and Tom Clancy games are like the peanut butter and chocolate of the games industry; the two go together naturally. Gamers who are already familiar with the Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six series have a new Tom Clancy game to consider this fall. Tom Clancy's HAWX (that's short for High-Altitude Warfare...X?) is flying onto PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this fall.

Developed by Ubisoft's Bucharest Studio, HAWX lets you pilot more than 50 planes in dogfights across the sky. Set in 2012, HAWX imagines a world that has become increasingly dependant on private military companies (PMCs). With PMCs increasingly gaining power, we sit on the precipice of a global conflict. Sounds like a good enough reason to hop in your fighter jet and shoot down some bogies.

HAWX features an Enhanced Reality System (ERS), which is meant to make even the average pilot feel like Iceman. ERS includes radars, incoming missile detection, an anti-crash system, damage control system, tactical map, information relay, weapons trajectory control and allows players to give commands to their AI squadron. With the Assistance Mode flipped on, the ERS will put pilots into a maximum safety mode. Think of it like having all the assists turned on in a racing game. You get more freedom and control with Assistance Mode off, but you will also be at greater risk without the full protection of the ERS.

Fortunately, you won't have to fight alone. HAWX supports four-player jump in co-op throughout the campaign. There is also a Vs. mode where up to 16 players can battle online for experience points and in-game cash, which is used to unlock new weapons.

Can you read? Games for Windows is PC.


And yes, a joy stick will probably be good if the game is worth anything.

Oh, no doubt. A joystick is basically REQUIRED. Which is why the 360/PS3 versions will probably suck. It's hard enough to play FSX with a gamepad, let alone a keyboard and mouse.

There was so much wrong with that trailer, it just disgusts me!  I love flight sims so I will probably skip this arcady type game.

That needs some serious Anti-Aliasing.


DX10 plzkthxbai.



And yes, it probably will be very arcadey, which is kinda sad, but whatever. Whats funny is that I found BF2 reasonably realistic (although relatively is probably a good word too), but w.e. The problem is, straightup simulations appeal to only a very small fanbase.

I actually saw a pretty sweet looking joystick for 360 with a separate throttle(like the x52, but not as high end) and all.

I've always wanted a good jet game even though I'm a shit pilot. FSX was just too dull, maybe this will fit the bill?

FSX was probably dull for you because it's for the EXTREME aviation enthusiast. Someone who ACTUALLY flies or plans to. Someone like me who 1) Is going to be going to flight school 5 days a week and 2) Knows how to fly a Cessna.

And I know about that joystick, but it'd be put to no good use. I'd never buy a peripheral if I knew it was just going to one game. I'd use the X-52 for FSX, BF2/BF3, HAWX, etc.

BTW I'm wondering why the trailer features a Dassault Rafale  (sexy plane though). Shouldn't it be an American one?

Well, not really, considering the tanks it's blowing up are M1's.
