Battlestations: Pacific looks as expected, features planes shooting at things

Eidos and Warner Bros. Interactive launched its new Web site for Battlestations: Pacific today,, and it’s everything you’d expect. It’s got game screenshots, movies, blogs, contests, and there’s even a podcast. 

Along with it, some new screenshots and a video have been released, and it’s also what you’d expect. It’s got planes with guns shooting at other planes with guns. And there’s some aircraft carriers getting shot at, too. And the music, well, it sounds like music you’d expect in a game that takes place between the attacks on Pearl Harbor and the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. 

Of course, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, if you’re into that stuff. A sequel to 2007’s Battlestations: Midway, the game offers up new vehicles, an island capture feature, and some improved details when it comes to damage. Things looking prettier when they blow up is always a plus. 

Battlestations: Pacific comes out February 3 for the Xbox 360 and PC, but you can get a taste of it by watching the new trailer, which is waiting patiently for you after the jump.
