In development under license from Paramount Digital Entertainment, Top Gun Hard Lock is aerial dog-fighting at jet speeds and tailgating MiGs at Mach 2, while offering a unique "Hard lock" mode where players perform air combat maneuvers that deliver an explosively satisfying visual payoff that brings them right into the action. Featuring the legendary F-14 Tomcat fighter jet and a number of additional licensed planes and weapons, and more than enough enemy MIGs to turn into smoldering rubble, the game is carefully mixed with just enough nostalgic references to remain true to its action movie roots.
