Battlestations: Pacific To Set Sail This May 2009Published by hellblazer55 on Friday, March 13, 2009
Eidos Interactive, Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announce that Battlestations: Pacific is set to release on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows LIVE in North America on May 12, 2009. Battlestations: Pacific is rated "T" for Teen.
Battlestations: Pacific takes the critically-acclaimed action/strategy gameplay of Battlestations: Midway to the next level with more intense, strategic combat. Players can take to the skies and seas through two massive, action-packed campaigns across 28 missions, featuring some of the most decisive naval battles in history.
A historically accurate U.S. campaign puts players in command of the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet through the Battles of Guadalcanal and on to Iwo Jima, Okinawa and victory. For the first time, players have a chance to rewrite history, commanding a Japanese campaign as the Imperial Japanese Navy from Pearl Harbor to Asia, Australia and beyond, expanding its empire throughout the Pacific Rim.
Battlestations: Pacific takes the battle online with a massively enhanced multiplayer experience, offering five new and innovative co-op and team-based modes for up to eight players. 'Siege' and 'Duel' offer an all-out action experience, allowing players to control a selection of war machines as each side battles to turn the tide of war; joining forces for 'Competitive', players compete side-by-side against the opposing AI forces; 'Escort' allows for a mix of action and strategy, with players escorting or attacking a key naval unit as it heads to its destination; and 'Island Capture' offers a compelling strategic experience, with players not only battling for supremacy of the seas, but also capturing and controlling the island archipelago.
"With over 100 authentic air, sea and undersea units, a compelling mix of action and strategy and an extensive multiplayer game, Battlestations: Pacific lets players participate in the Pacific conflict like no other game before it," said Lee Singleton, General Manager of Eidos Game Studios. "With direct control over fighters, bombers, kamikaze planes, destroyers, aircraft carriers, submarines and many more, including powerful prototype units, they will experience a level of immersion that truly brings the conflict to life."
