Ghost Recon gets novel treatment

by Jonathan Gronli on Nov 23, 2008 at 11:18 PM

Tom Clancy is a man who can pride himself on spinning a taut tale of political intrigue from real-world international tensions. With Rainbow Six he brought his incredibly accurate, technically correct style for writing about military, paramilitary and espionage groups to video games.

Reversing that trend, books based on various Tom Clancy video games have been published since 2004.

A demo was recently released on Xbox Live and lets us participate in an online match or an offline skirmish.

Endwar is also coming out for the Playstation 3 on November 7, 2008, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Ubisoft has confirmed that Endwar will also be coming out on the DS and PSP consoles in time for the holiday season.

Preview: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X

by Christopher Buckner on Apr 21, 2008 at 10:35 AM

A month after Ubisoft announced it had acquired the rights to the entire Tom Clancy universe, Ubisoft debuted a new independent Clancy game. Surprisingly, it isn’t a tactical shooter. It’s a flight simulator.

Titled Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X, (apparently thinking it is still cool to misspell words with an “X”) Ubisoft is hoping to take a chunk out of Namco’s popular flight simulation game, the Ace Combat Series. H.A.W.X will still be set in the Tom Clancy universe and will feature a number of notable characters from previous Clancy games including the Captain Mitchell and…
