The lights are on
Want to know what to expect from Ubisoft's upcoming combat flight simulator, H.A.W.X. 2? The game doesn't come out until September, but this 15 minutes of unedited gameplay footage should give you a good idea of how the game is shaping up. Watch as I spend half the video flying upside-down, narrowly avoiding mountains that I swear came out of nowhere, then fumble my way through the subtle eroticism of a mid-air refueling run. If that doesn't get you excited for H.A.W.X. 2, nothing will.
Please note that this footage was taken from a preview build of the game, and what you see may not be indicative of the final game's quality, or my true jet-piloting capabilities.
