Developed by Double Helix Games, the game promises to take the seek and destroy gameplay of the classic naval strategy game to new heights with a standalone story to the Universal Pictures movie, and a blend of strategic naval command and first-person action.

Battleship follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial enemy in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. Mathis must command the US Navy fleet in a siege on the sea, while simultaneously rallying the troops on land.

"With a Battleship video game, we have an amazing opportunity to take our beloved property and give it a modern-day spin," said Mark Blecher, senior vice president and general manager of Digital Media and Marketing at Hasbro. "The merging of tactical and action elements immerses players in an epic maritime conflict. Activision is completely up to the task of delivering a high-intensity thrill ride that's perfectly suited for today's console owners."

The game launches for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in April. In addition, unique versions for Wii, 3DS and DS are in development at Magic Pockets.

I hope this being an Activision title that Elite members get to download extra grid references for free.
