Description

In H.A.W.X, the player stars as U.S. Air Force pilot David Crenshaw, in the year 2014. After a covert operation in Mexico, the Air Force decides to dissolve Crenshaw's squadron, and he and other pilots are recruited by Artemis Global Security, a private military company. Crenshaw performs several missions for Artemis, until the intervention of US forces in one of these missions causes economical problems to Artemis, which turns Artemis against the United States. Loyal to his country, Crenshaw helps them to destroy the Artemis forces.
