SAN FRANCISCO — April 12, 2006 — Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers and Gearbox Software, one of the world’s best video game developers announced that Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway™ is in development for next generation video game platforms, including the PLAYSTATION®3 system and the PC. Scheduled for a holiday 2006 release, Brothers in Arms Hell’s Highway is the third game in the multimillion-unit selling and critically acclaimed Brothers In Arms® franchise.

Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway brings the critically acclaimed squad-based WWII shooter into the next generation of gaming with amazing graphics and sound, new cutting-edge gameplay features and a completely redesigned online component. Delivering on the franchise’s compelling story, unrivaled authenticity and intense squad-based action, Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway drops you into Operation Market-Garden, the largest airborne operation of World War II. Lead Matt Baker, Joe Hartsock and the rest of the 101st Airborne Division as they fight to open “Hell’s Highway” in a daring bid for a quick end to the war.

“With Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway, Gearbox is investing everything to take next-generation gaming to an entirely new level,” said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. “For Brothers In Arms Hell’s Highway, the Unreal Engine 3 powers real next-generation graphics and the most intense, action-oriented recreation of true history ever offered as interactive entertainment.”

Hmmm not really with BiA specifically (although I think that idea would hold credence with other franchises.) Each game I've extended what the story is capable of farther and farther out. With BiA3 we have a really solid two game base to build on so the development of the characters is going much farther than ever before. When we started BiA and decided to follow one group of guys we knew we were going to go all the way with it, we knew what we were getting into. Market Garden is the point where it all comes crashing down... this is game where everyone loses something. I think more people are going to pay attention to what we're doing here because with this operation... the Allied didn't win. They completed their objectives at a very high cost only to give up and pull back with the British unable to take Arnhem. It's not a bunch of levels strung together for set pieces... it's a long highway and the story of 23 men's pursuit to get up it.

Hate to jump the WW2 Hate wagon (Thats even begining to get old :)) but I'm really tired of WW2 themed games/shooters, to the point where I'm actually serious about not playing the new COD games or whatever (Which I've done up until now though I've said I wouldnt :)).

Anyway, it looks good from those scans, Im sure it will be good stuff~
