There’s a thin line between “delightful homage” and “copyright infringement” and Gearbox’s next game, Brothers In Arms: Furious 4, dances right along it. Furious 4 brings the Duke Nukem Forever developer back to World War II with a squadron of soldiers who use some rather… unorthodox… methods when fighting Nazis behind enemy lines.
The game will offer a four-player co-op allowing you and all your friends to play as Stitch, a crazed guy who employs a tazer; Crockett, a Texan who carries a six-shooter and a cattle brand; Chok, a Native-American who throws a mean hatchet; and Montana, the big bruiser with the minigun (every game’s gotta have one). Their mission is to track down Hitler himself while battling a “secret” army full of Nazi “experiments.”
So yeah, it’s basically Inglourious Basterds: The Game.
Ubisoft will release Brothers In Arms: Furious 4 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
