Brothers in Arms wordt zeker één van de meest realistische WWII shooters allertijden, maar wellicht ook de eerste waardat zo snel een vervolg wordt op gemaakt.
Brothers in Arms moet nog uitkomen, en Brothers in Arms 2 is al in de maak! Voor de WWII fans is dit natuurlijk fijn (waaronder ik onderandere).
BROTHERS IN ARMS 2 BREAKS COVER
Operation Market Garden in the frame as Gearbox reveals it's already working on the sequel
12:45 Preliminary work on Brothers in Arms 2 is already underway, we can reveal, Gearbox informing us at a press event in London this morning that part of its current European tour will involve research in Belgium for a second game in the series.
"We're working on the sequel," Colonel John Antal, the military adviser brought onboard by Gearbox for Brothers in Arms, told us earlier, before adding that the current plan is to recreate the entire World War II campaign as experienced by the 3rd platoon Fox Company, 502d PIR, the unit that's the subject of the squad-based FPS.
"We're going to follow Sgt. Matt Baker through World War II, I think people are going to want to hear his story," Colonel Antal said.
Mention was made of Operation Market Garden in relation to Brothers in Arms 2 by the Colonel, the operation the logical progression for the series. However, he also spoke of the Battle of the Bulge, Gearbox perhaps considering including both events in the follow-up.
It will no doubt be some time before we hear further word on Brothers in Arms 2, but remember where you read about it first.
Atten hut soldier! That's your ration of BIA 2 info for today, now report for duty with our exclusive interview with Brothers in Arms' gurus Col. John Antal and Stephen Palmer.
