Battlestations: Pacific dated for spring

Eidos title set for May

Publisher Eidos have dropped in this afternoon, to tell us that their new action-strategy game, Battlestations: Pacific, will be released stateside on May 12th, and across Europe and Australasia on May 15th.

The game features both US and Japanese forces, and you can even play the game from both perspectives, across a range of air and sea units - doing battle over the Pacific during pivotal WWII encounters.

The game is set for release on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and Eidos are banking on this being a biggie.

"With over 100 authentic air, sea and undersea units, a compelling mix of action and strategy and an extensive multiplayer game, Battlestations: Pacific lets players participate in the Pacific conflict like no other game before it," commented Lee Singleton, General Manager of Eidos Game Studios.

"With direct control over fighters, bombers, kamikaze planes, destroyers, aircraft carriers, submarines and many more, including powerful prototype units, they will experience a level of immersion that truly brings the conflict to life."
