(May 12, 2009 - Redwood City, CA) – Eidos Interactive, Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announce that “Battlestations: Pacific™” on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Games for Windows® LIVE launches today in North America and on May 15 in Europe. The sequel to the critically acclaimed “Battlestations: Midway™,” “Battlestations: Pacific” offers players the chance to relive or rewrite history with two action-packed naval campaigns to challenge every armchair admiral. The U.S. campaign picks up where its predecessor left off and takes players through the key stages of the war by authentically recreating some of the grandest naval battles of recent history. The Japanese campaign offers players a unique “what if” scenario and the chance to change the course of history, starting from the attack on the U.S. Fleet at Pearl Harbor and on through Asia, Australia and beyond, expanding its empire throughout the Pacific Rim. “Battlestations: Pacific” offers one of the most authentic gameplay experiences with over 100 air, sea and undersea units to master: fighters, bombers, kamikaze planes and subs, aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines, battleships and more. Each unit is recreated with incredible visual detail and comes complete with a full damage model that brings the battle to life. AA fire can rip planes to pieces, with wings and tails sheering off while carefully placed bombs or shell fire can pierce the hulls of even the largest ships, causing engines to stall, fuel stores to catch fire, magazines to explode and ultimately ships to break apart. “Battlestations: Pacific” also offers players the chance to take the conflict online, with five massive multiplayer modes for up to eight players, each offering a unique take on naval warfare with both team-based and one-for-all modes. A new feature, Skirmish Mode, allows players to experience the multiplayer melee offline, playing each of the maps and modes against AI-controlled opponents. “Battlestations: Pacific” is ESRB rated “T” for Teen and PEGI 12+.
