Top Gun Hits The Danger Zone Again This Summer
If I have to explain the movie "Top Gun," which would mean you've never seen the movie, then you are a seriously deprived individual.
Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced that Maverick, Goose, Iceman and Viper will once again be in the skies in the upcoming title for the PlayStation 3, PC and Mac. They're calling it a "free-flying air combat shooter" where you will enroll in the prestigious Top Gun Academy as Maverick, and after graduating, you will take to the danger zone with the best pilots the US Navy has to offer. Shoot down opposing jets, defend and attack bases, engage in huge dogfights, try no less than seven different gameplay modes, and even go online to sample five distinct multiplayer modes (up to 16 players allowed). They've even gone to the effort of tapping the film's screenwriter, Jack Epps, Jr. to expand on the movie's original plot and story elements. Said John Kavanagh, senior vice president of video games at Paramount Digital Entertainment:
"With Jack Epps, Jr. on board, we're excited to deliver a new Top Gun arcade experience that holds true to the popular film. The Top Gun development team did a great job taking the best elements of the film - the characters, action, plot and attitude - and expanding beyond them by creating new dialogue, more missions and multiplayer modes. We're confident players will have a great time doing inverts, buzzing the tower and getting into dogfight battles with film's characters and their friends online."
In development by DoubleSix, Top Gun will wing onto store shelves some time this summer.
