Description

Following the events of the first H.A.W.X, the USAF decided to retain the services of the previously disbanded and reformed H.A.W.X (High Altitude Warfare eXperimental) squadron who have been sent to the middle east to investigate what happened to several missing nuclear warheads and locate them before they are put to use by the bad guys.

New features to H.A.W.X is the ability to pilot your aircraft during both take off and landing which can be done from either a landing strip at an airfield on terra firma or from the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. You also now have the ability to refuel your aircraft whilst in flight. As well as new features, the graphics have been improved along with the A.I, which will now make more of an effort to dodge your weapons and break your weapons lock. GeoEye mapping technology is once again used to provide recreations of various cities worldwide.

Once again, there will be a selection of planes to choose from, including the A-10 Thunderbolt II, F-22 Raptor, F-2A, Eurofighter Typhoon, Harrier GR.9, F-117A Nighthawk as well as the ability to remotely fly UAV's.

As with the original H.A.W.X, you can play the entire campaign on your own, or do it co operatively with up to 4 friends in a drop in/drop out game or play against them competitively in modes that include straight up dogfights and bombing AI controlled ground AA sites to earn points.

Trivia

Copy protection

The PC version originally required a permanent internet connection even in single-player mode. In February 2013, this copy protection has been removed and the game only requires a one-time activation since then.
