- DR Studios Studio Head Rory Jackson
announced that Battle Islands launches today on PS4 with details below.
To quote: Hi. My name is Rory Jackson. I'm the Studio Head at DR Studios in the UK, the developers of the free-to-play strategy combat game Battle Islands, which is launching on PS4 today!
Battle Islands is set in the South Pacific in 1942. A platoon of soldiers land on a tropical island and your task is to defeat enemy forces, build a garrison to defend your island, and go out guns blazing to attack other islands with the huge array of air, sea and land forces you have at your disposal - tanks, jeeps, gunboats, and fighter planes to name but a few!
We're absolutely delighted to bring our game to PS4 today - it's a major achievement for us, and the culmination of a huge amount of work and effort from everyone here. Battle Islands started life as a game on mobile devices, where it's been really popular. However, it's really important to stress it isn't simply a mobile game, as our PS4 launch clearly shows.
We've rebuilt it from ground up to make sure it's up to scratch for a next gen console like the PS4. We've built brand new, higher-resolution assets that we believe look stunning, and built a completely new user interface that really capitalizes on DualShock 4.
