Brothers In Arms: Battle Of The Bulge ?
|Brothrs in Arms|
How much did it past from the last game ? Nine years ... ye! And we still don't have any confirmation about the new release of Brothers in Arms. Huge number of fans are still active about this question, and only answer till now we know ( unconfirmed ) is that Brothers in Arms will be covering the Battle of the Bulge.
For those which don't know about this period of time ( which I'm sure that every fan know ) is the fight from 16 December '44 to 25 January '45. What makes this important is that almost every American unit which push trough the line was cut off, meaning no reinforcements, no supplies ( food, medical, ammo, clothes ..etc ) and the most important they were exposed to bad weather condition ,hypothermia ,starving to death. Correct me if I'm wrong but for the 101st airborne this was a disaster taken the point that they "surrounded" the town of Bastogne on December 19 and were the first to attack. Repelling and trying to slow down the attacks from the German forces with constant artillery fire.

So enough of the brief history lesion ,gameplay wise Brothers In Arms should be done in this period of time ,there are even some pointers toward this. And the most correct proof is the Leggett line from Brothers In Arms Hells Highway : " So you've been through Hell... Tell me Matthew, how do you feel about snow? " which Matt Baker response is " I can handle snow ". Said that ,the things I want to cover now are some of my personal opinions what should we see in this game. Ideas small and big that will improve the gameplay and make the game worth naming it Brothers In Arms. And even a reminder to Gearbox that fans are still waiting for the next sequel.
As a story driven/squad commanding game Brothers In Arms should evolve not only on the graphic side ,in the last games we had strict linear gameplay...following from point A ...kill ,kill ,kill ...point B ... short movie. My opinion is making it semi open world and I'll write it down why. First thing is the line that 101 hold it for about a month ,second are the supplies ,third the bad weather ,and last the enemy forces.
- Holding the line
In the end add the story above some of the elements I pointed out this can be the best Brothers In Arms game ever released. Or watch Band Of Brothers series and you will get it what I'm pointing at. And we know that Gearbox can make good story mixing reality with fiction thus making a good game worth our time. Until than we are forced to wait about any news considering this game but E3 is coming soon so keep your fingers crossed .
