Get ready for War on an Epic Scale with
Battlestations: Pacific

Eidos Interactive Ltd. can today confirm that
Battlestations: Pacific, the official sequel to 2007’s acclaimed Battlestations:
Midway, will be released on the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows.

Set in WWII, Battlestations: Pacific delivers
intense, action-packed combat and strategic warfare on 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.

Battlestations: Pacific offers a unique blend of
action and strategy, as players must plan their moves carefully on huge
open-world arenas and then fight in the air, above sea and underwater as they
take direct control of their units and storm into combat. Join forces with
friends online or play solo against the computer controlled opponents in the
all-new Skirmish mode or battle each other in one of the five new, innovative
multiplayer modes.

“Battlestations: Pacific is even bigger, more
authentic and innovative than ever before, taking the Battlestations franchise
to the next level and allowing players to relive some of the most memorable
battles in modern history, as well as gain an insight into what could have been,
should Japan have gained the upper hand against the United States,” said Trevor
Burrows, Brand Manager at Eidos. “We have been paying great attention to our
loyal online community and fan base to ensure that Battlestations: Pacific
delivers the most exciting, authentic and fun Battlestations experience yet!”

Battlestations: Pacific features a massive US and
Japanese single player campaign with over 28 story missions, double the size of
the previous Battlestations: Midway. The game also features 21 new units,
including kamikaze and other WWII jets and units. Players can now experience for
the first time a whole new level of depth of gameplay while taking direct
control of the infamous Ohka and other Japanese air units that terrorized the
Pacific Ocean during WW2.

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 is set for release on
Xbox 360 and Games For Windows.
