Brothers In Arms: Furious 4

Furious 4 (previously Brothers in Arms: Furious 4) is a video game published by Ubisoft and being developed by Gearbox Software. It was unveiled at E3 2011.

Following its unveiling at E3 2011, Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 has presented itself as a casualized sequel to the Brothers in Arms titles, taking a very different approach to its World War II subject matter. Instead of portraying a realistic take on war focusing on Staff Sgt. Matt Baker of the 101st Airborne Division, this new game follows four zany characters of a yet unnamed unit on a fictional romp through Germany after Hitler himself.

While the announcement CGI trailer immediately garnered comparisons to Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, recent previews of Gearbox's E3 game play demo describe the game as an insane combination of the studio's previous hit Borderlands and the recent arcade shooter Bulletstorm by People Can Fly and Epic Games. The new approach was met with negative reaction from fans of the first three games.

Gearbox has stated that their Brothers in Arms brand is more than just Baker and the 101st, and that Furious 4 does not represent a reboot that would pre-empt the Baker series of games. At the recent Gearbox Community Day, Creative Director Mikey Neumann promised that fans would still see the final chapter in Matt Baker's story.

The four protagonists are Chok, a Native American soldier who uses hatchets to dispatch enemies, Montana, a large lumberjack turned Nazi slayer who wields a machine gun, Crockett, a Texas native who uses a cattle iron to brand fallen enemies, and Stitch, a mentally unstable Irishman who shocks enemies with a custom made taser.

In a recent interview at the Penny Arcade Expo, Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford stated that Furious 4 would not be part of the Brothers in Arms series and will become a new IP. He also declared that the game has been undergoing some drastic changes.
