Battlestations Pacific Announced

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 Pacific."

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.

Battlestations: Pacific features all-new online multiplayer modes where players 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.

Battlestations: Pacific will be available on Xbox 360 and Games For Windows.

I thought it was a good game, but waaaaay too short. Also, near the end of the game you spent most of the time in the strategy map directing icons. Too much micromanagement and not enough action. They needed a lot more of the individual missions for each vehicle.
