New twists are coming to a classic of turn-based strategy, as the naval board game Battleship is charting a course for Xbox One and PS4. Letting players challenge each other online or battle against AI opponents, Battleship features two game modes: Classic and Clash at Sea!
Classic is a 3D take on the board game, letting players arrange five ships on a grid and take turns firing on their hidden enemy in an attempt to score hits and sink their opponent’s fleet. Clash at Sea! remixes the experience, giving your ships special abilities powered by resources that you earn as you play. Additionally, Clash at Sea! is part of Battleship’s new campaign, which gives players an opportunity to master the new mode while pursuing story-driven missions.
Packing additional features like fleet personalization and online leaderboards, Battleship will be available August 2 for Xbox One. Update: Battleship will be released on PlayStation 4 at a later date this quarter. The extra time will enable the development team to deliver the best experience for fans on all available platforms.
Update #2:Battleship will be available on PS4 August 12.
