Battleship: The Game Released


It's time to engage in an epic battle at sea and on shore as Hasbro and Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc. announced that  BATTLESHIP  the video game is available today at retail outlets nationwide. The game takes a hybrid approach combining military strategy and fast-paced first-person action gaming as players take control of a powerful naval fleet and experience the cinematic action of war at sea.  BATTLESHIP is now available for the Xbox 360 , PlayStation 3, Wii and the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS hand-held systems.

Working with the legendary BATTLESHIP  property, and the new epic action-adventure from Universal Pictures, we felt it was important to capture some of the cinematic drama while allowing players to experience the action from a unique perspective, we want both movie-goers and gamers of all ages to dive into an all new, fun BATTLESHIP  experience.
- David Oxford, Activision Publishing

Combining military strategy and fast-paced first-person shooter gameplay, players take control of a powerful naval fleet in this re-envisioned version of  BATTLESHIP.  Trapped in a "dome" of alien-terror on the Hawaiian Islands, where support communications have been put to a halt, players commandeer real-world naval vessels, including Destroyers, Carriers, and even the famous  U.S.S. Missouri as action-packed sea battles against alien invaders ensue across land, sea, and air.

With numerous gaming platforms available today, it is important to showcase  BATTLESHIP  on many different levels, the new  BATTLESHIP  is the perfect medley that both strategic and action-junkie gamers will fall in love with.
- Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro"

Is it wrong to just laugh and go on pretending this whole thing never happened?
