Said Jeremy Longley, Director at Lost Toys Limited, "We're thrilled that the PC version of this game will soon be available to gamers. Battle Engine Aquila has been widely praised for its fast-paced action, graphics and replayability, and we can't wait for it to get it into gamers' hands."

Shooter Puts Players at the Helm of Advanced War Machine

Battle Engine Aquila is a fierce and frenetic shooter that puts players at the helm of the most advanced war machine ever created. Tasked with protecting a world from hostile rebel forces, players employ an impressive arsenal of pulse cannons, micro missiles, spread bombs and more to prevail in the game's continuously evolving war zone.

The battle begins on the planet Allium, where rising sea levels have resulted in a significant reduction in habitable land and rising tensions between two major planetary factions. As the game's central character Hawk Winter, players are thrust into this rapidly escalating conflict as the pilot of the most powerful weapon in the war. To win the conflict, players can take advantage of the game's key features:

  • Ability to attack enemies by ground or air
  • A huge selection of powerful weaponry, including guns, missiles, cannons, bombs, lasers, grenades and torpedoes
  • Modifiable weapon load outs, selectable wingmen and a host of allied troop, tank, air and sea craft support
  • More than 40 missions in a branching storyline with multiple endings
  • "EVO" versions of every mission, which are significantly harder and present new challenges, such as enemy forces with more entrenched positions or greater numbers of enemy forces
  • Several modes of play, including Single-Player, Co-Op Mode (two players team up to battle missions together), Skirmish Mode (pitting two players and their entire armies against each other) and Versus Mode (one-on-one fights between two Battle Engines in deadly arenas). Multi-player modes are two player, split-screen, on a single PC.
  • Optimized to take advantage of the latest graphics cards
