Ubisoft sends word that a demo of its latest combat game taking place in the wild blue yonder will soon be available on the mundane colorless expanse of the internet. A single-player sampling of HAWX 2 is scheduled for arrival on the Xbox Marketplace next Monday, August 16, with the PS3 demo touching down on PSN a day later on Tuesday, August 17.

Both versions will contain the same two missions from the game's story-driven campaign. One mission will have players donning the flightsuit of a Russian pilot on the trail of stolen aircraft, while the other is from the perspective of a US flyboy and will let players experience the simulated thrill of launching from an aircraft carrier. HAWX 2 will taxi onto store shelves September 7 for PS3 and 360, followed by PC and Wii releases later in the year.
