About Top Gun
Exclusively for PlayStation Network, Top Gun is a free-flying air combat shooter based on the iconic film. Top Gun expands the legend of Maverick, Iceman and the rest of the Top Gun flyers through new dialogue, all-new story elements and expanded Indian Ocean active combat written by the film's screenwriter, Jack Epps, Jr. As Maverick, players will go up against the best of the best at Top Gun Academy with their Radar Intercept Officer (RIO), Goose. Following graduation, players will take on Soviet MiGs over the Indian Ocean. While shooting down enemy fighter jets, defending and attacking bases and engaging in large-scale dogfight battles, Maverick will test the limits of his plane, his new RIO and his wingman, Iceman. Top Gun also features five multiplayer modes, allowing up to sixteen players to battle it out online.
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. Top Gun is now available to download on PlayStation ® Network for $14.99. It is rated T by the ESRB. Top Gun will be available for the Mac and PC in 2010.
