    Just announced that UBISoft is going to be using their Tom Clancy license to make a modern air combat game for the Xbox 360. For, I'm going to the biggest sucker for this game and buy once available.

    The is called Tom Clancy: HAWX. Apparntly it's set in the Ghost Recon universe (supposeively all Tom Clancys games are in the same universe but there's no true connections). It looks like it'll be about players taking on mercenary fighter pilots. They also want to support 4 player co-op as well.

    Here's a trailer of it on ign.com. http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/863/863558p1.html

    The concept sounds cool, but I fail to get excited over trailers that show no gameplay footage.

    And I still haven't bought AC6...

    I totally understand that. I'm just excitied that UBI Soft is going to go through with this. Heck, the only other option I have for air combat games (modern anyways) for the Xbox 360 is Over-G fighters, which I havent tried yet but I hear a lot of bad rep.

    Finally, a Tom Clancy game I might like!

    Although I am giving EndWar a chance, even if RTS belongs on PC.

    Sorry for reviving a nearly year old topic. I've been tracking this game for a while. I'm a fan of air combat games and Tom Clancy games, Tom Clancy's: HAWX is a winner for me.

    Also, Tom Clancy's HAWX is one of the strangest air combat games I have ever heard about because of the features it has. Like the game will have a computer AI that'll assist the pilot (you) go through a course, by flying through on screen brackets, to line up a shot to attack. Thats good for players who dont have an idea what to do, but more seasoned pilots for this type game can turn it off and that's when the flying gets crazy. When you turn off the computer assistance, the safeties are disengaged and the fighter will pull off insane maneuvers. Theses are the kinda crazy moves that'll stall your plane and fall if you're not careful.

    Here's a game trailers video of the game in action.
    Gametrailers.com - Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. - Preview

    Here's also a list of the aircraft avilable to fly in the game.

    I'm glad to see that the Mig-29 Fulcrum, the AV8B Harrier (this plane is almost never in any game), Saab-39 Gripen and the FA-18 Super Hornet are in the game.

    Is this just on the 360? I'd love a flying game for the PS3, even better if my Namco sticks would work with it.

    Yup, avilable for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

    Madcats already designed a flight stick to be execlusive for the game, apparntly for both PS3 and 360.

    I read that the designers also want to make use of the ACES EDGE flight stick that you can get for Ace Combat 6 for the 360.

    i SERIOUSLY need to buy AC6 for 360. Damn money and its non-growing-on-trees ways.

    Hey DG, did you ever play Ace Combat on the PSP?

    Escort missions?
    that blows.
    why is it a requirement to escort folks in these games?

    saw the aircraft list...
    lots of planes are out of their element, imo.

    but i bet this game will look Beautiful on a big screen.
    can't wait to give it a try.

    That'll be fine as the aces sticks are the same as the ones Namco did for AC4/5 on the PS2. They used the USB connection on the PS2 so they'll work on the PS3 fine I imagine.

    Well apparntly the HAWX demo is going to be avilable for Xbox live tommorow. It's suppose to have two missions, one that teachs you how to fly with the ERS assistance off and another one that's some combat mission. There're 3 fighters avilable to fly, the F-16A Fighting Falcon (dibs!), AV-8B Harrier II, and then Su-35 Super Flanker. The demo is also going to feature 4 player coop.


    Heh, I'm probably not going to get it tommorow because I'll be getting FEAR 2, another game I eagerly awaited for.

    One thing I wanted to try if anyone wants to go for it, is that we all get together for coop mission, but it'll be our 1st time playing the game. That way we're all idiots and screwing around with the controls and watching each other stall and it'll be a good laugh. :D 


    Suck it up pilot! You're in a target rich environment, disengage safeties and go in hot! Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

    Because you're escorting Air Force One.... get it?
