Valve has announced that Ubisoft’s action-arcade flight sim, HAWX 2, has been marked down on Steam from $50 to $25 (R175) from now until 10AM PST on 14 February. The sale also includes the game’s ‘Open Skies’ DLC, which has been marked down from $10 to $5 (R35).
HAWX 2 received pretty decent reviews, and is one to check out for fans of the genre. However, it is definitely worth noting that the PC version requires an always online internet connection to play.
