Top Gun to Launch on PS3, PC, Mac
Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced that it is to release a game based on the 1986 Tony Scott-directed action film Top Gun for PS3, PC and Mac this summer. Based directly on the plot of the film, which famously starred Tom Cruise as “Maverick” and Val Kilmer as “Iceman” in competition at a “Top Gun” academy for gifted Navy pilots, Top Gun is to feature writing from Jack Epps, Jr., the original screenwriter, to “expand beyond the film’s plot and create all-new story elements and dialogue with the film’s iconic characters.”
As well as a campaign mode where players take the role of Maverick, the game is to feature a “Horde” mode in which players can’t “let [their] ego write checks [their] body can’t cash,” with endless waves of enemies, and five online multiplayer modes for up to sixteen players: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun, Bombing Run and Capture the Flag.
Whilst you wait to live out your childhood fantasies of playing Tom Cruise’s character, don’t forget that you have a once in a lifetime chance to see Top Gun on the big screen one more time. Check out this post for more details.
