Top Gun also features five multiplayer modes, allowing up to sixteen players to go up against the best and battle it out online.
For Top Gun, Paramount Digital Entertainment has tapped the film’s screenwriter, Jack Epps, Jr., to expand beyond the film’s plot and create all-new story elements and dialogue with the film’s iconic characters, including Goose, Iceman, Jester, Viper, Merlin, Slider, Wolfman and more.
It takes a lot more than just fancy flying - Top Gun features seven gameplay modes, two single player and five multiplayer. In Campaign Mode, as Maverick, solo players will first learn the ropes at the academy and then progress to active duty, teaming up with seasoned flyers to take down enemy planes over the Indian Ocean. But don’t let your ego write checks that your body can’t cash. In Horde Mode, players must show off their flying prowess as they defeat endless waves of increasingly challenging enemies. In online multiplayer, players will enlist in the US Navy or join their comrades to go head-to-head with up to 15 other live opponents in five different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun, Bombing Run and Capture the Flag.
Players will fly into the danger zone in various unlockable planes. Each jet has unique strengths and abilities, with varying levels of speed, destruction, agility and durability.
Top Gun features three single player and five multiplayer modes.
- Flight School: Players enroll as Maverick at Top Gun Academy and train to handle the breakneck speeds of hitting the “after burner” and the “tunnel vision” that poses a threat during high G-force maneuvers.
- Campaign Mode: After training to be the best of the best, players join the fight above the Indian Ocean for 11 total missions at various times of day.
- Horde Mode: Bogeys like fireflies all over the sky! Solo players get to test their flight combat abilities as they take down endless waves of enemies of increasing difficulty. Top scores will appear on leader boards. Remember, no points for second place.
- Online Multiplayer: Players can enlist in the US Navy or join the Soviet air forces and go head-to-head with opponents in five different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun (choose your wingman and compete against enemy pairs), Bombing Run (defend and attack mobile bases) and Capture the Flag. Players can choose to battle at three times of day across multiple environments.
