HAWX Co-Op Interview - Buzzing the Tower with Tom Clancy - Page 2

He's on your tail.  Hit the brakes and....

Co-Optimus: Is one of the four co-op players chosen as leader of the squad?  Are there quick commands to issue to your team (attack my target, etc)?

Adrian: There is no squad leader. All players have the same abilities. In Team Deathmatch, each player can request to be defended or to have his target attacked, and any teammate can accept this request. However, we removed this option from coop even though it was initially there, because we found it to not be effective enough. Targets and threats expire at a much faster rate in coop, so a target or threat is never relevant enough to require attention. Team tactics like splitting in groups to cover different areas of the map are more important, and we found that the most effective way for players to decide this kind of tactics is simply through in game chat.   


Co-Optimus: Are there AI wingmen you can give orders to over the headset if you already have 4 players in the co-op game?

Adrian: No, in co-op the wingmen control is removed. However, this doesn’t mean that the tactical aspect decreases in value – in fact it is more important here. In coop, the number of enemies is larger and players must coordinate with each other in order to handle them in the most effective manner.  


Co-Optimus: Will there be a replay and/or screenshot saving system, so that we can revisit our best co-op moments?

Adrian: We will have a feature like that for one of the platforms. We will communicate about it soon. 

I can see my house from here

Co-Optimus: What is the one defining feature in H.A.W.X. you are most proud of?

Adrian: That must be the “Assistance OFF” mode. The extreme maneuverability in this mode, combined with the “Cinematic camera” view makes the player able to perform never seen before extreme maneuvers and intense dog fighting action, never seen before in any other flight game.
