Thus far, it appears that no detail has been overlooked. In addition to the impressive graphics and gameplay perspectives showcased in every screenshot, the developers gave H.A.W.X. an aural boost by hiring Tom Salta to compose the music. "H.A.W.X is the first Tom Clancy title to be completely based around High Altitude Warfare," said the composer, whose previous work includes another Tom Clancy property: the Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter series.
"It's connected to the GRAW series but goes in an entirely new direction, literally…up in the skies. To support this new experience, the music had to sustain all the feelings associated with epic modern warfare, flying, cutting edge military aircrafts and speed."
