Battle your way to victory on land, sea and air as Feral Interactive announces the release of Battlestations: Pacific™ for the Mac on Friday, October 8th. Developed by Square Enix London Studios, Battlestations: Pacific takes the critically acclaimed action/strategy game play of Battlestations: Midway™ to the next level with two huge campaigns, one based on the actual events of the War in the Pacific and the other a‘what-if?’ scenario based on the premise of Japanese victory.
The historically accurate U.S. campaign invites players to relive some of the key naval battles of World War II, by leading the U.S. forces from the battle of Midway all the way to Okinawa. The Japanese campaign lets players take command of the Imperial forces and change the outcome of the war by defeating the US forces in the Pacific and expanding the Empire of the Sun all the way to Hawaii.
Both campaigns comprise 14 separate missions, with players in command and control of over 100 different types of planes, warships and submarines. Battlestations: Pacific boasts a much-improved graphics engine and ups Midway’s much-praised online experience with an enhanced multiplayer offering, containing five new and innovative co-op and team-based modes.
“ Battlestations: Pacific is massive and beautifully balanced,” said Feral Interactive’s David Stephen.“The compelling mix of action and strategy inherited from Battlestations Midway remains as good as ever, but the expansion of the game to encompass a’what-if?’ Japanese campaign adds a whole new dimension to the experience.”
“Battlestations Pacific was a labor of love,” said Square Enix London Studios’ Jonathan Eardley.“We are delighted to see it so well replicated on the Mac.”
The game will retail in North America for US $39.95,£34.95 (inc VAT) in the UK and€39.95 (inc VAT) throughout Europe. It is currently available to pre-order from Feral's online store ( http://www.feralinteractive.com/?section=buy&game=bsp).
Minimum system requirements call for an Intel Mac with at least 2 GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card*, DVD drive, and Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later.
