LOS ANGELES - September 14, 2010 - Paramount Digital Entertainment today announced that Top Gun the video game is now available on Windows PC download via Steam. Based on the iconic film, Top Gun is a free-flying air combat expanding the legend of Maverick, Iceman and the rest of the Top Gun flyers through new combat scenarios and dialogue written by the film's screenwriter, Jack Epps, Jr.
Along with Radar Intercept Officer (RIO) Goose, players take the role of Maverick as they take on the best of the best at the Top Gun Academy. Upon graduation, gamers take to the skies over the Indian Ocean to go up against the Soviets in large-scale dogfight battles. Top Gun includes five online multiplayer modes, allowing up to 12 players to battle it out.
While learning the ropes at the Academy and progressing toward active duty, players will team up with seasoned pilots to take down enemy planes over the Indian Ocean in the game's Campaign Mode. For an added challenge, Top Gun fans will have the task of facing the top Soviet ace pilot while managing the tumultuous new wingman relationship between Iceman and Maverick.
Aside from some fantastic flying, players can soar into two single-player and five multiplayer modes. Top Gun also adds the Horde Mode, where players must defeat endless amounts of challenging enemies while showing off their flying prowess against increasingly difficult odds. Whether enlisting in the US Navy or joining their Soviet comrades, players get to feel the rush of multiple head-to-head online multiplayer modes for up to 11 live opponents. Top Gun also features a total of six completely unique planes, starting with the US Navy's F-14 and unlocking five more: the F-16, F/A-18, and the enemy's MiG-29, MiG-31 and Su-27.
Top Gun was developed by doublesix, the recent award winner of Spike's "Video Game Awards" for "Best Game Based on a Movie or TV Show" category.
