As well as announcing Far Cry 3 in LA tonight, Ubisoft has also lifted the lid on a fourth outing in the Brothers in Arms series.
Called Brothers in Arms Furious 4, the game will once again be developed by Gearbox though this entry is promised to "spin the series in a new direction". It’s set in World War II, but where it will deviate from past outings is in its liberal approach to history.
The press release explains: "Players will use special weaponry and unexpected combat abilities to fight the greatest threat the world has ever faced: an experimental Nazi army conceived in secret by the Third Reich."
Ubisoft’s US marketing director Adam Novickas added: The Brothers in Arms franchise has been renowned for its gritty direction that has dropped players into the middle of World War II.
With Brothers in Arms Furious 4, Gearbox brings the action to a whole new level filled with unexpected twists and over-the-top battles that are sure to please new players and fans alike.”
Brothers in Arms Furious 4 will be out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2012.
