Gearbox working on traditional Brothers in Arms

Furious 4 580x300

When Gearbox Software revealed in June 2011 that it was re-imagining its Brothers in Arms franchise, some fans weren’t willing to give the new game the benefit of the doubt. As this petition can attest, they were outraged by the decision to trade a sombre examination of war for the Tarantino-style hijinks on display in Brothers in Arms: Furious 4. Slowly, but surely, these passionate fans seems to be getting their way.

Gearbox dropped the ‘Brothers in Arms’ portion of the title in September last year. The Texan developer has now gone a step further, with company president Randy Pitchford pledging to deliver a new and “authentic” Brothers in Arms title in addition to Furious 4. He did, however, emphasise that the more traditional game remains in the very early stages of development.

As for Furious 4, Pitchford claimed that most players “will not recognize it as ever having anything to do with Brothers in Arms.”

Hopefully more interesting than the old pin and flank tactic that was the original series – though to be fair you could pin and frontal assault as well, but pin and flank was pretty much the only tactic outside of choosing a weapon and directing soldiers to eiter A) Pin or B) flank.

 

Present cutting edge technology!

And DirectX 9c…

 

This really pleases me to hear. I have just reinstalled Hells Highway and realised how much I love the game.

I am actually a fan of this mechanic. It’s great for the change of pace which is nearly every game – run, gun.

 

thank god! i heard they were waiting for next gen to release a proper 3rd release of brothers in arms a little while ago! it’s good they’ve confirmed they will be doing a proper sequel (well 3rd installment) lol

That furious 4 looked insanely stupid and should never have had the brothers in arms name attached too it :p
