Sequel to Battlestations: Midway hits Oct. 8
Battlestations: Pacific, a popular wartime simulation game, is coming to the Mac in early October via Feral Interactive and original publisher Square Enix. A sequel to Battlestations: Midway, the new game features two elaborate campaigns, over 100 types of aircraft, ships and submarines, 14 missons within each campaign, and an opportunity to change history by having the Japanese dominate the Pacific theater.
The game is set around historically-accurate air and sea battles that dominated the final days of World War II, offering a compelling mix of action and strategy. Two campaigns let players take command of either US or Japanese forces, creating the potential to change the outcome of the war and extend Japan's empire all the way to Hawaii.
The game retails for $40 and is available for pre-order. Battlestations: Pacific requires an Intel Mac with at least 2GB of RAM, a 256MB or better discrete video card, and Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later. The ATI X1xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and Intel GMA series video cards and chipsets are not supported.
