Thursday 30th April/...The official demo for Battlestations: Pacific , the immense sequel to the critically acclaimed Battlestations: Midway, is now available through Xbox Live?, Games for Window Live, Gamespot.com, IGN.com and Steam.
Published by Eidos, Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Eidos Game Studios, Battlestations: Pacific completes the entire Pacific War with two massive single-player campaigns, the historically based US campaign and a historically possible Japanese campaign. Players will experience one war through two epic sagas to be a part of history or change it. Commanding the US Fleet, players relive the grandest and most critical naval battles of the Pacific War and for the first time, as the Japanese, players lead the IJN Fleet to a completely different ending to the war.
No other game delivers the challenge of an RTS with the rush of real-time WWII flight and naval warfare. Players need intelligence and expertise to plan their moves in order to remain one step ahead of the opponent while commanding both strategy and action to turn the tide of war.
The Battlestations: Pacific demo features:
• In-game tutorials
• One action-packed mission (Divine Winds of Leyte) from the US campaign
• Two multiplayer modes (Island Capture and Siege) that can be played in“Skirmish Mode,” a new mode which allows players to tackle multiplayer maps against AI-controlled enemy
