Pacific Storm (PC)

CDV Software Entertainment USA and Buka Entertainment are pleased to announce that Pacific Storm has shipped to North American retail outlets. Pacific Storm is a combination RTS/Action title set in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Pacific Storm will appeal to both serious strategists and action-oriented gamers alike, with its combination of rich strategic elements and in-the-cockpit combat controls.

An exciting new hybrid title, Pacific Storm mixes the strategic elements of RTS titles with the action of an arcade title. RTS fans and serious wargamers alike will enjoy classic strategy elements including resource management, unit and building construction and unit deployment, while action fans will be able to take the skies or seas as they directly control units in intense combat, changing the tide of individual battles, or perhaps the entire war.
