Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. 2 is developed by Ubisoft Bucharest studio. H.A.W.X. stands for High Altitude Warfare eXperience.
In a plot that would be familiar to Clancy fans, a trio of apocalypse-ready nuclear warheads have been stolen from a Russian airbase - and all the evidence point towards the insurgents setting off bombs all over the ex-Soviet heartland and the Middle East.
You play from three sets of “good guys”, the US H.A.W.X team , the Royal Navy, and an elite Russian crews and clearly you are going to be making sure the bad guys don't get these nukes into action.
You're tasked with ending the turmoil and bringing normality back to the free world - and you've a choice of 32 licensed planes with which to do it. These include monstrous fighter-jets, armed to the teeth with missiles and future-tech, drones and gunships
The single-player offering of H.A.W.X 2 aims for a deeper and more involving experience than the first game; and to that end, players are no longer limited to aerial warfare.
The game now covers all aspects of piloting a jet - from navigating your bird to the runway and finishing with a tricky landing. Those looking for the full fighter pilot experience can look forward to winding down from a particularly tense dogfight with a graceful precision landing.
The multiplayer option of this game allows up to eight players to fly in Campaign, Survival, free-flight and arcade modes. You can choose out of 32 selectable aircrafts and play. Also, the ground targets will be active in the Team Deathmatch.
