Activision and Hasbro to make Battleship Game

/ 7 years ago

Activision has announced it will be joining forces with Hasbro to release a first-person shooter/tactical naval warfare hybrid inspired by the classic Battleship IP.

The title will be developed by Double Helix Games, which has also put together Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters; Front Mission Evolved; and Silent Hill Homecoming.

According to the official release, Battleship follows Cole Mathis, an elite demolitions specialist, as he squares off attempts to handle “an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago”.

Apparently old Cole has managed to get himself trapped in a communication dead zone and is forced to command the U.S. Navy fleet in a “siege on the sea.”

As if that wasn’t enough of a workload, he’s also got to rally troops on land for “war on the shore.” Tough break.

“With a BATTLESHIP videogame, we have an amazing opportunity to take our beloved property and give it a modern-day spin,” said Hasbro’s Mark Blecher.

“The merging of tactical and action elements immerses players in an epic maritime conflict. Activision is completely up to the task of delivering a high-intensity thrill ride that’s perfectly suited for today’s console owners.”
