Activision have announced a tie in game with the upcoming ‘Its-not-Transfomers-at-sea-honest’ Battleships movie.
The game will be a stand alone story and not follow the plot of the movie. It follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he ‘clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago.’
Cole will command the U.S. Navy fleet in a ‘siege on the sea’ in tactical sections and also coordinate the battle on the ground.
Battleships arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this May and is being developed by Double Helix. ‘Uniquely designed versions’ (i.e. different) will land for the Wii, Nintendo DS and 3DS, these are being developed by Magic Pockets.
In case you had not guessed, the non strategy bits in the PS3 & Xbox 360 versions are in glorious FPS-O-Vision.
