H.A.W.X Demo & Release Plans

Ubisoft announces a March 13 release date for the Windows edition of Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X, and a February 26 release date for the Windows demo for the Tom Clancy-branded aerial combat game. The announcement also includes a March 6 release date for the Console editions of the game and word to expect the Xbox demo on February 11 and the PlayStation 3 demo on February 12. Here's what to expect in the demo:

In this demo, players will dominate the skies for the first time and battle planes, tanks and amphibious assaults and have the opportunity to dogfight with other elite pilots in a stunning panoramic boss scene.

Key features of the H.A.W.X demo:

        • Co-op enabled for up to 4 players – Jump in/Jump out
        • Gain experience points and unlock up to three real, licensed planes in the demo:
            • F-16A Fighting Falcon
            • SU-35 Super Flanker
            • AV-8B Harrier II
        • Choose between two different game modes:
            • Normal – Default control type
            • Expert – Allows full control over the aircraft in “Assistance Off” mode
        • Two heart-pounding missions:
            • Operation: Off Certification (Training mode)
        • Learn the skills of an elite pilot in “Assistance Off” mode and pull extreme maneuvers
            • Operation: Glass Hammer (Rio De Janeiro)
        • Take flight over GeoEye technology (the world’s best satellite data), and witness Brazil like never before
        • Learn to use the Enhanced Reality System in “Assistance On” mode, where your plane’s computer calculates the best interception course for you to follow to attack an enemy, evade a missile or hit a ground target

Will this be a clancy title that UBI doesn't F up.
I quit buying any UBI title since all they touch has turns to POS on the PC.

Fingers are crossed. At least I won't have to torrent the game to evaluate it. I will be checking the demo out as soon as it is available. If it's any good and doesn't have too much of the consolitus desease that infects all their titles, I will buy it.
