Default Top Gun Announced (PC, PS3, Mac)

Paramount Digital Entertainment sent out a press release announcing Top Gun, an upcoming arcade aerial combat game based on the '80s Tom Cruise movie. Top Gun is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Mac this summer.
Maverick, Goose, Iceman and Viper take to the sky again in Top Gun for PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Mac and PC. Paramount Digital Entertainment today announced Top Gun video game, a free-flying air combat shooter based on the adrenaline-packed film. In Top Gun, players will enroll in the Top Gun Academy as Maverick with their Radio Information Officer Goose to go up against the best for Top Gun honors.

Following graduation, players will fly into the danger zone with fellow US Navy pilots over the Indian Ocean, where they will shoot down enemy fighter jets, defend and attack bases and engage in large-scale dogfight battles. Top Gun also features five multiplayer modes, allowing up to sixteen players to go up against the best and battle it out online. Currently in development by doublesix, Top Gun will be available this summer.

For Top Gun, Paramount Digital Entertainment has tapped the film's screenwriter, Jack Epps, Jr., to expand beyond the film's plot and create all-new story elements and dialogue with the film's iconic characters, including Goose, Iceman, Jester, Viper, Merlin, Slider, Wolfman and more.

"With Jack Epps, Jr. on board, we're excited to deliver a new Top Gun arcade experience that holds true to the popular film," said John Kavanagh, senior vice president of video games, Paramount Digital Entertainment. "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."

"Our continued collaboration with Paramount Digital Entertainment to bring Top Gun to PlayStation Network adds to our overall value message and furthers our industry leading line-up of diverse and exclusive PS3 content," said Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations, Sony Computer Entertainment America. "Providing a deep, yet accessible gameplay experience, Top Gun will appeal to both casual and hardcore PlayStation fans when it comes to PlayStation Network this summer."

It takes a lot more than just fancy flying - Top Gun features seven gameplay modes, two single player and five multiplayer. In Campaign Mode, as Maverick, solo players will first learn the ropes at the academy and then progress to active duty, teaming up with seasoned flyers to take down enemy planes over the Indian Ocean. But don't let your ego write checks that your body can't cash. In Horde Mode, players must show off their flying prowess as they defeat endless waves of increasingly challenging enemies. In online multiplayer, players will enlist in the US Navy or join their comrades to go head-to-head with up to 15 other live opponents in five different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun, Bombing Run and Capture the Flag.

Players will fly into the danger zone in various unlockable planes. Each jet has unique strengths and abilities, with varying levels of speed, destruction, agility and durability.

if there is one person in the world I would like to punch in the face most it would have to be Tom Cruise.
