SCi Signs 'Midway' (PS2/Xbox/PC) - Screens

by Rainier on May 7, 2004 @ 9:51 a.m. PDT

SCi Games announced MIDWAY, a new tactical multi-player game of extraordinary proportions under development at Mithis, which will be released in 2005. The game focuses on the naval and aerial battles of World War II leading up to one of the greatest naval victories of all time, the Battle of Midway, which saw the highly outnumbered US Naval and Air forces take on the might of the most powerful naval force in modern history; the Imperial Japanese Navy.

MIDWAY (working title) offers a totally new approach to air, sea and underwater combat, accurately reflecting the atmosphere and situation in the Pacific during 1942. Players take direct control of battleships, aircraft carriers, submarines and planes in a 'free-control' environment, with seamless switching between any of the units under your command: engage in dogfights with enemy fighters through flak-infested skies, utilise the silent attack of your submarine to unleash torpedoes on unsuspecting enemies, or command the awesome firepower of an entire carrier group.

Featuring a number of game modes, including single-player campaigns for both Japanese and American sides, 'career' missions focusing on specific units and broadband multiplayer modes for up to 16 players, MIDWAY (working title) is a game on the grandest scale, bringing the air and sea battles of the Pacific to life like never before and will be available in summer 2005.
