Fans of the old games may want to be wary, though: it sounds like the tone of the series is shifting slightly, Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford saying that we’ll see soldiers whose favourite thing in the world is “kicking Nazi ass”, and you’ll be engaged in some “gleeful killing”.
How gleeful? Your four squadmates will use electricity, a branding iron, tomahawks and a mini-gun reespectively.
Meaning, it’s more Brothers in Arms: Inglorious Basterds than your daddy’s Brothers in Arms.
The new game is called Brothers in Arms: Furious 4, and it’ll be out in 2012.
