Battlestations: Midway is a real-time 3D tactical/strategy game that adapts the naval battles of the Second World War. It introduces how the naval warfare changed during WW2 - from the dreadnaughts protecting the memory of Battle of Jutland to the forerunners of modern carriers. The player may control different vessels in real or hypothetical naval battles. The fleet consists of ships, captains, officers and crew of different abilities. In order to achieve victory, an effective team should be forged.

The year 2007 marks the 65th anniversary of the Battle of Midway, the single most decisive naval battle in United States history, which served as the turning point of World War II. This critical battle inspired the gameplay of Battlestations: Midway, currently in development by Eidos Studios, Hungary.

"The Battle of Midway was a turning point that changed the course of history," said David Bamberger, US Marketing Manager, Eidos. "Battlestations: Midway challenges players to see and create turning points by taking the right action at the right moment in epic air, sea, and undersea battles."

Battlestations: Midway brings to life the epic naval battles of the World War II Pacific Theater from Pearl Harbor to the Battle of Midway. Featuring an innovative blend of real-time strategy and action gameplay, players can instantly switch between every vehicle on the map, playing as a pilot, then a gunner, then a submarine captain throughout the course of the battle. The game also features multiple authentically designed warships from the USS Yorktown to Japan's super battleship, the IJN Yamato. Players can command over 50 vehicles and over 100 vehicles can face off in any one battle.

The single player mode features 11 large-scale campaigns with 12 bonus challenge missions, while the online multiplayer combat offers an entirely new online battle experience with head-to-head and co-operative style gameplay. Battlestations: Midway is a wholly new and significant addition to the Xbox LiveĀ® online game service community that delivers an exciting online gaming experience for the collaborative gamer.
