Battlestations: Midway gets reinforcements

Iowa Mission Pack features new multiplayer map, new single-player mission, five new units; download now available for 400 Microsoft points ($5).

The scale of war demonstrated in Battlestations: Midway just got a bit more grand. Eidos today released more downloadable content for the World War II strategy game over Xbox Live Marketplace. Dubbed the "Iowa Mission Pack," the download is available in all regions except Japan and costs 400 Microsoft points ($5).

Included in the pack are a new multiplayer map called Battle of the Sibuyan Sea (which features the battleships the Iowa and the Yamato squaring off), a new single-player challenge mission called Raid on Truk, and five new units--the Iowa battleship, the P-38 Lightning, the Gekko, the IJN Shimakaze Destroyer, and the Japanese minisub.

Battlestations: Midway is rated T for Teen and retails for $59.99. For more information, read GameSpot's review.

Great! One can never get enough of a good thing! Can we? I am just glad they still support the title and took their chances to bring a fresh genre (mix between Strategy and Action) into the console market.

I've always had an interest in this game. It seems like a good deal for the two new mission maps. Plus you get the five new units, including the USS Iowa battleship. I downloaded the demo on XBL, but havent had time to play it.

Should be well worth the points. I'm going to wait a bit though to see if the apparent techical issues get resolved.

I downloaded this mappack and I have yet to finish one of the new maps, it gets 2min in and then freezes my system. I love this game but they have to do something about the bugs.

About time. I still think that the Bismark should be added regardless if it wasn't part of this theater

This is a fine game, and this $5 addition from Midway is awesome. The game being released as an Xbox 360 exclusive called Hour of Victory from Midway is the one that is generating a lot of hype and getting a lot of people excited!

Seem like a good deal for $5. But I really think they should include these when we bought the game.

This game is pretty good. I'd prefer more action compared to strategy, to much looking at a minimap and not enough shooting.
