Eidos' Battle of Midway set for 2007

Xbox 360, PC combat game Battlestations: Midway won't deploy until early next year; release to coincide with 65th anniversary of Battle of Midway.


Battlestations: Midway

Gamers planning on rewriting the Battle of Midway later this year have been given some extra time to ready their attack. Battlestations: Midway for the Xbox 360 and PC will be in a holding pattern until early next year.

The Eidos-published game was originally expected to be released this holiday season, but will now ship out in "early Q1 2007," almost 65 years after the real Battle of Midway.

Like the real conflict it depicts, Battlestations: Midway will feature gameplay in the air, on the sea, and underwater. Pilots will be able to switch over to Captains with the press of a button, as gamers can move between every vehicle--including planes, aircraft carriers, and submarines--instantly.

The single-player features 11 campaigns and a dozen bonus missions, and the online multiplayer supports both head-to-head and cooperative play.

Battlestations: Midway has not yet been rated or priced. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's previous coverage.
