Features: Battlestations: Pacific expands on Battlestations: Midway in several ways adding new combat features such as island invasions which have an effect on the battle at hand. New weapons, planes and ships were added such as HVAR rockets and experimental jet fighters, such as the Kikka and Shinden, as well as kamikazes, such as the Ohka and Kaiten, although there is also some more conventional aircraft and ship additions. Battlestations: Pacific shifts events beyond Midway for the American forces as they continue the war onwards to Okinawa, but the most major addition is that of the Japanese campaign which tell a "what if" story where Japan is victorious at Midway and continues their war effort beyond that point victoriously and onwards to invade Hawaii.
