Paramount Digital Entertainment joined with the US Navy to premier the new PlayStation Network Game, Top Gun, at the 23rd annual New York Fleet Week. Whilst the parade of ships was docked in the New York Harbour, Navy personnel and visiting civilians were treated to a first look at the new Top Gun video game aboard the US navy vessel, the USS Iwo Jima.
PlayStation 3 kiosks were setup inside the ship so that the 2,800-strong crew could try out the game. Those sailors were treated to a screening of the classic Paramount Pictures “Top Gun” movie in the vessel’s massive hangar bay.

Top Gun features three single player and five multiplayer modes.
- Flight School: Players enroll as Maverick at Top Gun Academy and train to handle the breakneck speeds of hitting the “after burner” and the “tunnel vision” that poses a threat during high G-force maneuvers.
- Campaign Mode: After training to be the best of the best, players join the fight above the Indian Ocean for 11 total missions at various times of day.
- Horde Mode: Bogeys like fireflies all over the sky! Solo players get to test their flight combat abilities as they take down endless waves of enemies of increasing difficulty. Top scores will appear on leader boards. Remember, no points for second place.
- Online Multiplayer: Players can enlist in the US Navy or join the Soviet air forces and go head-to-head with opponents in five different modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Top Gun (choose your wingman and compete against enemy pairs), Bombing Run (defend and attack mobile bases) and Capture the Flag. Players can choose to battle at three times of day across multiple environments.
Top Gun will be released on PlayStation Network this Summer.
