This press release
announces Battlestations Pacific, a sequel to the action/strategy hybrid
Battlestations Midway, slated for release for Games For Windows and Xbox 360,
though no release date is revealed at this point:
Eidos Interactive Ltd.,
one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software,
today confirmed that Battlestations: Pacific, the official sequel to 2007's
acclaimed Battlestations: Midway, will be available for the Xbox 360 video game
and entertainment system and Games For Windows. The game features a massive U.S.
and Japanese single player campaign that offers a unique blend of action and
strategy. Players must plan their moves carefully on huge open-world arenas and
fight in the air, above sea and underwater to relive some of the most
hard-fought battles in WWII history. With the newly added Japanese faction,
players will also gain insight into what could have been, should Japan have
gained the upper hand against the United States. Battlestations: Pacific also
features five new innovative multiplayer modes to strategically plan and battle
against friends with all new maps and units.
Set in WWII, Battlestations: Pacific delivers intense, action-packed combat and
strategic warfare at an extraordinary scale and features two distinctly
different single player campaigns. As the Americans, the game picks up the story
where Battlestations: Midway left off and allows players to fight their way from
The Battle of Midway to Okinawa as they try to secure peace in the Pacific. As
the Japanese however, players take control of the Imperial Japanese fleet and
have the unique chance to fight at Pearl Harbor before attempting to change the
course of history and take full control of the Pacific Ocean.
"Eidos is excited to bring an even bigger, more innovative and authentic
experience with Battlestations: Pacific," said Robert A. Lindsey, Executive Vice
President of Sales and Marketing for Eidos Inc. "With an all new Japanese
faction to explore and fight with, newly expanded multiplayer content, and a
slew of new air, sea, and land units, the game takes the Battlestations series
to the next level, bringing a completely different perspective to the war over
The U.S. and Japanese single player campaigns in Battlestations: Pacific feature
over 28 story missions, doubling the size of the previous Battlestations:
Midway, and 21 new units, including kamikaze and other WWII jets and units.
Players can now discover another viewpoint of the war by taking direct control
of the infamous Ohka and other Japanese air units that fought over the Pacific
Ocean during WWII.
For the first time, the game also includes the tactical landing of troops in
battle. Launch your parachute squadrons with pin-point accuracy or ensure the
safe passage of your landing craft and watch your battalions of troops capture
key locations, man the defensive artillery and gain a strategic foothold to
support your offensive efforts.

can actively engage in battles and skirmishes against friends online, and via
System Link. With a plethora of new maps, units, and options to explore,
Battlestations: Pacific delivers the most exciting, authentic and fun
Battlestations experience yet.
