'Battleship' (ALL) Announced - Screens

As a stand-alone story from Universal Pictures' upcoming epic action-adventure of the same name, the Battleship videogame, inspired by the classic naval strategy game, is a seek-and-find adventure that offers a blend of strategic naval command and first-person action gameplay.

"We're geared up for an outrageous sea and land conflict with the all new Battleship videogame," said David Oxford, Activision Publishing.  "Inspired by the film's exciting action and stunning backdrop, the game is next-gen naval warfare that thrusts players into the middle of humanity's last stand against an unfamiliar menace."

Battleship follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago.  Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a "siege on the sea," while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying "war on the shore."


"With a Battleship videogame, we have an amazing opportunity to take our beloved property and give it a modern-day spin," said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro.  "The merging of tactical and action elements immerses players in an epic maritime conflict.  Activision is completely up to the task of delivering a high-intensity thrill ride that's perfectly suited for today's console owners."

Combining naval strategy simulation with first-person shooter gameplay, players fend off the enemy beachside while ordering attacks against their marine counterparts. Seamlessly switching between battlefield and overview "Battle Command" map, the Hasbro game is brought to life as carriers, frigates, cruisers, destroyers, submarines and the legendary USS Missouri Battleship pummel the enemy in a race to strategic points that turn the tide of battle.  The Battleship videogame is a next-gen marvel perfectly suited to turn nostalgic game junkies into battle-hardened admirals.
