Gearbox cannot keep the truth hidden!

Furious 4 Gameplay Footage Leaked, Then Removed.

It's been a weird path for Furious 4 ever since the E3 announcement in 2011. Starting out as a Brothers in Arms game before spinning off onto its own IP, then going dark sometime last year, Gearbox has been pretty quiet about their upcoming four player co-op Nazi shooter. It looks like they intend to keep it that way. A video of alleged gameplay footage found its way onto the internet via a Demo Reel from special effects artist Nick Peterson, before those info tyrants at Gearbox tore it down.

A new IP for you and me.

Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 Will Be Re-Branded

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.

Gearbox's Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 is "Evolving"

Gearbox's other four player cooperative title, Brothers in Arm: Furious 4, was notably absent from this year's E3. The studio's head honcho and co-op aficionado, Randy Pitchford, recently told CVG "the game has evolved." He wouldn't say what the game had evolved into... I'm hoping dinosaurs, because, well, WWII-era Nazi-eating T-Rex's would be a glorious thing. But that seems unlikely.

New Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 Trailer Takes the Series in a New Direction

I've already mused upon the violent nature of the latest batch of trailers coming out of E3 this year.  At least we have the Brothers in Arms franchise to bring us back to reality.  Gearbox's latest entry into the series, titled Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 is yet another World War 2 shooter.  Yes, it's been done before, but maybe a serious treatment of one of the darkest periods in mankind's history is what we need -something that shows the consequences of our violent actions.  We know it's a first person shooter that will support four player co-op, as well as a versus multiplayer mode.  Let's take a look at the debut trailer and see what Gearbox has in store for us...

Brothers in Arms 2 iPhone Game to Have Co-Op, Though Not at Release

The number of co-op gaming apps on the iPhone is, slowly but surely, growing, and a new one is possibly on the way.  It seems that Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front, the sequel to last year's Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes iPhone port, will include complete campaign co-op for all 13 of the game's levels for two players.  There's a catch, though: the co-op mode will not be available at the game's release.  Does that mean co-op will be patched into the game later, or will it end up being left out altogether?  We reached out to Gameloft, the game's developer, for clarification, but have yet to receive any word regarding whether or not the game will eventually have co-op.  For now, chock this one up to a solid "TBD" (but hopeful) status.
