Top Gun Preview Event on US Navy Ship
Paramount Digital Entertainment and Sony did something really cool recently. Upon the USS Iwo Jima, at the 23rd annual New York Fleet Week, the new PSN game Top Gun premiered. PS3’s were set up inside of the ship so that the 2,800 crew members on deck could get some hands-on experience with the game. There was also a screening of “Top Gun”, the movie, which is always a good thing.
Details on the game:
Top Gun features three single player and five multiplayer modes.
o Flight School: Players enroll as Maverick at Top Gun Academy and train to handle the breakneck speeds of hitting the “after burner” and the “tunnel vision” that poses a threat during high G-force maneuvers.
o Campaign Mode: After training to be the best of the best, players join the fight above the Indian Ocean for 11 total missions at various times of day.
o Horde Mode: Bogeys like fireflies all over the sky! Solo players get to test their flight combat abilities as they take down endless waves of enemies of increasing difficulty. Top scores will appear on leader boards. Remember, no points for second place.
o Online Multiplayer: Players can enlist in the US Navy or join the Soviet air forces and go head-to-head with opponents in five different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun (choose your wingman and compete against enemy pairs), Bombing Run (defend and attack mobile bases) and Capture the Flag. Players can choose to battle at three times of day across multiple environments.
The game will be releasing this summer, so look forward to more info in the coming weeks.
