Ubisoft confirms HAWX demo dates

Xbox 360 tomorrow, PS3 on Thursday.

Ubisoft has told Eurogamer that the Xbox 360 demo for Tom Clancy's HAWX will go live tomorrow, followed by the PS3 version on Thursday. A PC sampler will follow on 26th February.

On offer will be co-operative play for up to four friends, and three real planes to choose from. And they're better than fake planes, obviously.

Two missions are up for grabs: one covers training techniques, and the other sees players take to the skies above Rio de Janiro - recognisable because someone built a massive statue of Jesus there.

HAWX, developed by Ubisoft Bucharest, sits somewhere between arcade and simulation air combat. The clever bit comes from a stabiliser system that can plot trajectories for lining up attacks on ground and air targets, or be turned off to give a zoomed-out perspective and complete control over the aircraft to shake off missile locks and bogeys.

Being a Tom Clancy game, everything also looks very familiar, with little telly broadcast windows popping up in the corners of the screen to issue objectives. HAWX looks very nice, too.

Tom Clancy's HAWX will be out for Xbox 360 and PS3 from 6th March. A PC version will follow on 13th March.
