H.A.W.X to use satellite images

And we're not just talking Google Earth either...

Ubisoft is working with a firm called GeoEye to work images taken from space into Tom Clancy's could-be-ace combat flight, H.A.W.X.

Most of it goes above our heads, but GeoEye VP sums it up quiet well by saying, "High resolution satellite imaging is moving from the black world of intelligence to the white world of commerce and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X will bring that reality to gamers. With video game graphics becoming more realistic, the use of high-quality photographic ground textures in H.A.W.X adds true photo-realism to the air combat experience."

It'll look good then. You'll find a splattering of shots below to do with satellites and the game.

H.A.W.X is coming to 360, PS3 and PC early next year.
