Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. ("High Altitude Warfare Experimental Squadron") is an upcoming combat flight simulator developed by Ubisoft Romania for Windows, PlayStation3 and Xbox360. It is set in 2012 above the skies of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in a world increasingly dependent on private military companies (PMCs) and elite mercenaries. As these non-governmental organizations gain power, global conflict erupts with one powerful PMC attacking the United States.
The game is set in the same universe as Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, and features an Enhanced Reality System (ERS), which can include radars, incoming missile detection, an anti-crash system, damage control system, tactical map, information relay, weapons trajectory control and the ability to give commands to an AI squadron. When fully activated, ERS provides assistance to the player. Some or all of these assists can be turned off to make the game more difficult and give the player more manoeuverability.
