Ubisoft decided to enter the dog fight last year by releasing a new air-fighter game under the Tom Clancy brand, calling it H.A.W.X, which stands for a bunch of things that absolutely no one ever cared to remember.
The game on the other hand wasn’t bad at all, with our very own Lazygamer Review awarding it a pretty solid 8/10. The sequel is on the way, and we have received news via a press release that a demo will be buzzing Xbox Live and PSN very soon.
More after the jump.
Here’s the info about the demo that we received in the press release:
The demo will offer 2 single-player missions:
Take to the air as a Russian pilot sent to intercept a group of stolen aircraft high above the Caucasus Mountains, a hot spot on the world conflict radar, you will be playing a Russian pilot in this mission part of the new multinational cinematic story narrative in H.A.W.X. 2.
Seek and Destroy
Playing from the perspective of the elite U.S. H.A.W.X. squadron deployed to settle conflict spilling over in Africa, you are tasked with taking out specific targets with smart ammunition at night. Take off from a carrier under the cover of night and strike against a weapon smuggling operation using precision guided laser bombs
The H.A.W.X 2 demo will be available to download on Xbox Live on August 16 and and on August 18 for the Playstation Network.
It releases on September 3 in South Africa as well as Europe, with a US release date set for September 7. The game will also be made available for the Wii and PC.
