Ubisoft announce HAWX… I get overly excited

I’ll let you in on a secret here, I have always wanted to be a pilot. It was my childhood dream and if it wasn’t for a slightly dodgy right eye I would have been the person defending our country right now.

So lucky for you I am not :), anyway why am I telling you this?

Because Ubisoft has just announced a brand new game called HAWX where you get to step into the most advanced fighting machines in the world.

I know very little about this game apart from that it looks beautiful and it is going to include 4 player co-op action and a 16 player deathmatch option. Which instantly makes it a must have.

Oh and it’s tagged by Tom Clancy which unfortunately doesn’t mean much since he sold his name.

    I too wanted to be a pilot, was gonna join the airforce and be a hero, instead I now draw for a living, what can I say Im lazy too. Anyway, YAY for aerplane games 😀

  • Anyone else spot the glaring similarity to that awesome scene from Behind Enemy Lines?

  • Fox1

    I also wanted to be a fighter pilot hence my nick Fox1.
    Did you guys see the screenshot that was posted? This is gonna be another hit with a Tom Clancy name attached to it.

    This game is going to feature over 50 jets and jump-in and jump-out co-op which will be pretty cool.

  • Naudran

    Flying with the standard controller is going to suck though. They should bring out a joystick and throttle control for this, then I would buy it without thinking twice.

    Also wanted to join the airforce, but for… political… reasons I wasn’t accepted.

  • SICK!!!!! WOO HOO!!

    I HAVE 1 COMPLAINT! HOW CAN YOU SAY:

    “Oh and it’s tagged by Tom Clancy which unfortunately doesn’t mean much since he sold his name.”

    Not cool, think about it the games probably been in development for a while now! so there’s a good chance that Tom Clancy had a lot to do with it.

  • @ Naudran they’ve come out with a stick and throttle it was used for Ace Combat 6

  • LazySAGamer

    @koldFU5iON, yeah maybe I am being a bit harsh but the whole idea of selling a name doesn’t sit well with me.

    My personal problem is that every Tom Clancy game has been fantastic and I am worried that the quality is now going to drop….

  • Fox1

    The quality of RSV2 has already dropped both graphically and in story.

  • Naudran

    @koldFU5iOn: Sweet, thanks.

    I’m also of the opinion that as we go along, they are just going to stick his name on every second game.

  • This game is going to suck! 😉

    Why else would Ubisoft have to resort to paying $50 million just to keeps it’s only selling point – Tom Clancy’s name.

    (just kidding folks, I couldn’t resist)

  • All I’m saying is that maybe you guys are jumping to conclusions!

    Take for example games like:

    Assassin’s Creed
    Prince of Persia
    Farcry 2
    Settlers

    All great games that stand on their own two feet without the help of the Tom Clancy Name on their head.

  • Easy kold, we’re just ragging on Ubi 😉 Megarom won’t be held accountable and we’ll still buy the good stuff.

    Unless Ubi announce Tom Clancy’s Ghost Assassins of Persia 😉
