Ubisoft has released the first video dev diary for Tom Clancy's HAWX (high-altitude warfare).

Due to be released in spring, the game marks a departure from traditional Tom Clancy titles in that you'll be thrown into the cockpits of incredibly powerful and technologically advanced jet fighters.

Set in the near future, the game imagines a world where a private military force has accumulated such power that it attacks the USA. Check out the video diary at GP Downloads.

Tom Clancy's HAWX will be available for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
