Activision and Hasbro Team For ‘Battleship’ Video Game; Teaser Trailer Released

Think a movie based on the board game Battleship is silly enough? Well, get ready to play the video game based on the movie based on the board game. Confused yet?

It’s being reported that Activision and Hasbro are teaming up for a game version of their upcoming tentpole project, also titled Battleship, which will follow “elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a ‘siege on the sea,’ while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying ‘war on the shore.'”

You can check out an image from the game above, and the first teaser trailer below.

The game will be developed with Double Helix Games, and merge “tactical and action elements,” with both strategic naval gameplay and first-person gameplay.

This sounds like an absolute bore. Personally, with the movie itself continuing to look like an absolute pile of trash, one can only imagine how that will bleed over into the video game. Video games based on movies are usually always bad, so imagine one based on a dreadful movie. Color this writer uninterested.

What do you think?

  1. This is irony right?  Have I finally recognized something that was ironic?  It’s a game about a move about a game, that has NOTHING to do with the original game.  amiright?
