Ubi Soft Entertainment, a world leader in interactive entertainment, today announced that Destroyer Command, its highly anticipated World War II naval combat simulation, has gone gold. The title is expected to ship to retail shelves in two weeks with an MSRP of $39.99.

Destroyer Command is a 3D naval combat simulation that gives you command of a WWII era destroyer in the US Navy in either the Atlantic or Pacific Theaters. You can advance to command a division of destroyers, participating in a variety of naval actions against Axis forces. Destroyer Command is a complete naval combat experience offering interaction with enemies on land, sea and in the air as you stalk U-boats, swat Kamikaze planes, escort convoys, blast enemy ships in surface actions and pound the beaches in support of infantry landings.

"One of the most unique features of Destroyer Command is the ability to play against owners of the WWII German U-Boat title, Silent Hunter II, via Internet or LAN," said Carl C. Norman, executive producer for Ubi Soft Entertainment. "This is a first in computer gaming, allowing players of two different products to compete against each other on the same virtual battlefield, further enhancing the Destroyer Command experience and fully immersing the player in the game."

Cooperative and head-to-head multiplayer options with other Destroyer Command players
