Coming soon to a Palm Pre near you: Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. The 3D game, presumably of the PDK variety, has been posted to a covert YouTube channel named “gameloftpalm” (which is filled with other Gameloft webOS games, in case you’re feeling suspicious). In case you’re not familiar with it, H.A.W.X. is a 3D flight simulator complete with mid-air combat and all that jazz, and it was rather recently (December) released on the iPhone OS. And now, as best as we can tell, H.A.W.X. is on its way to webOS.

With H.A.W.X. you fly your choice of 25 different fighter and jet planes in 13 different missions over a variety of real locales (like Chicago, Rio de Janiero, and Washington, D.C.). You can fly everything from the F-14 jet fighter to the B-2 stealth bomber, and engage targets both in the air and on the surface. H.A.W.X. can be controlled both from an on-screen thumb-pad or by tilting with the accelerometer. On the iPhone version, players can even hook up with up to three others via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and play against each other - and if Gameloft’s Shrek Kart on webOS is of any indication, we can expect that we’ll at least be able to blow each other out of the skies over Wi-Fi.

Thanks to Kurush for the tip!
