BATTLESHIP video game to complement film

9 Feb 2012

The BATTLESHIP video game will be sailing onto the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this April in Europe and this May in North America as a side to Universal Pictures’ upcoming action-adventure of the same name.

In addition, there will be uniquely designed versions of the BATTLESHIP video game for the Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS, with more details to come at a later date. 

Hasbro and Activision Publishing Inc have joined forces to bring the classic seek-and-find naval game to video gamers, offering players strategic naval command and first-person action gameplay.

“We’re geared up for an outrageous sea and land conflict with the all new BATTLESHIP video game,” 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 with an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril at a Hawaiian archipelago. Trapped in a 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.”

The BATTLESHIP video game features carriers, frigates, cruisers, destroyers, submarines and the legendary USS Missouri Battleship in a battle to beat the enemy.
