News: The PC and Xbox 360 sequel to Battlestations: Midway is coming on May 12.
Eidos has announced that Battlestations: Pacific, the PC and Xbox 360 sequel to Battlestations: Midway, will arrive in stores on May 12.
Battlestations: Pacific has flown under the radar since it's announcement over a year ago, but here's what fans of the first game can expect to say in the sequel:
An historically accurate US campaign puts players in command of the US Navy's Pacific fleet through the Battles of Guadalcanal and on to Iwo Jima, Okinawa and victory. For the first time, Battlestations offers players a chance to rewrite history, playing through a Japanese campaign as the Imperial Japanese Navy from Pearl Harbor and on through 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 capturing and controlling the island archipelago.
We'll have more soon.
