Eidos Forums

Endelig kommer der en ordenlig demo på Xboxlive.

Det er nemmerlig Battlestaions:Midway !

Her er lidt detaljer om demoen, som er multiplayer demo:


Map: Islands of Solomon

Historical Perspective
Japanese forces occupied the Solomon Islands in January 1942. The counter-attack was led by the United States; the 1st Division of the US Marine Corps landed on Guadalcanal and Tulagi in August 1942. Some of the bitterest fighting of World War II took place on the islands for almost three years. Tulagi, the seat of the British administration on the island of Nggela Sule in Central Province was destroyed in the heavy fighting following landings by the US Marines. Then the tough battle for Guadalcanal, which was centred on the capture of the airfield led to the development of the adjacent town of Honiara as the United States logistics centre.

NB: Players can share units. If you take player/slot one for example you are not always limited to just air combat – you can swap a unit with a team-mate and take command of a ship or sub as well.

In terms of the famous units involved; one of the carriers is the USS Yorktown and the Japanese battleship is the Kongo class I believe. There are also Wildcat and Zero fighters, Dauntless dive bombers and Avenger torpedo planes.



Glæder mig, jeg er mest til player 3 :)
