Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 is getting a new name. Well, not really a new name, it's more like a shorter name. It's becoming it's own IP. According to Eurogamer, this means Gearbox is ditching the "Brothers in Arms" moniker for this particular title and simply going with "Furious 4." The game's title has been changed on the Gearbox home page, so it checks out.
Apparently tomahawks, red-hot branding irons, testicular electrocution, and giant men named "Montana" don't jive with the Brothers in Arms attitude. Of course, no Furious 4 news is complete without that ridiculously badass trailer:
Yup. Still looks pretty sick.
Check out following screenshot from the game's Facebook page. Why yes, that is an eyeball in the middle of that pick axe massacre. I guess this is a pretty accurate visual depiction of the word "thwack". Maybe add in a little "sploosh" for good measure.
Furious 4 supports four player online co-op. We expect to hear more details following Gearbox's big community hoopla on September 15th. After that we'll update the database accordingly.
