Today Activision announced that Battleship: The Video Game is available in the UK from today. The game takes a hybrid approach combining military strategy and fast-paced first-person shooter gaming as players take control of a powerful naval fleet and experience the cinematic action of war at sea. The game is available now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.
Combining military strategy and fast-paced first-person shooter gameplay, players take control of a powerful naval fleet in this re-envisioned version of Battleship. Trapped in a “dome” of alien-terror on the Hawaiian Islands, where support communications have been put to a halt, players commandeer real-world naval vessels, including Destroyers, Carriers, and even the famous U.S.S. Missouri as action-packed sea battles against alien invaders ensue across land, sea, and air.
In the Nintendo Wii, 3DS, and DS versions, players are in control of a wide variety of naval units, including Cruisers, Submarines, and Patrol Boats in exciting turn-based combat with a team of specialised commanders. With different play modes to choose from, including Story and quick-battle Skirmish, players will unlock new maps, units, and leaders to turn the tide of battle.
