Based on the incredible true story, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 immerses players in the historic eight-day invasion of Normandy with unparalleled imagery, authenticity, sound, and gameplay. From Gearbox Software, the award-winning creators of Half-Life Opposing Force and developers of James Bond: Nightfire, Counter-Strike and Halo (PC), this one-of-a-kind game is the only first-person tactical shooter set in WWII.
Brothers in Arms is set during the famous airdrop before the invasion at Normandy, where Sgt. Matt Baker and his squad of 101st Airborne Paratroopers are scattered over the French countryside. As the story unfolds, you must choose between the success of your mission and the lives of your men — your brothers in arms.
Designed with real military tactics and unprecedented authenticity, Brothers in Arms features historically accurate and detailed battlefields, events, and equipment re-created from Army Signal Corps photos, aerial reconnaissance imagery, and eyewitness accounts. The game includes a cast of more than 20 characters, each with a unique personality, appearance, and style. Both allies and enemies in the game use the standard operating procedures of fire and maneuver to flank and kill their foes. With intuitive and easy-to-use squad controls for both the hardcore and mainstream gaming audience, the innovative multiplayer design allows players to command three-man AI teams in a battle of wits and skill to accomplish exciting objectives.
