Feral Interactive has announced the October 8 release of Battlestations: Pacific, the sequel to Battlestations: Midway. Developed by Square Enix London Studios, Battlestations: Pacific expands upon the game play offered in Battlestations: Midway with two large 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.
“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 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.
“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 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.
- Intel Mac with at least 2 GB RAM
- 256MB or better graphics card
- DVD drive
- Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later.
