E3: Brothers in Arms Furious 4 kills lots of Nazis

Gearbox’s sexy sexpot Randy Pitchford was at the Ubisoft E3 press conference to discuss Brothers in Arms Furious 4. It’s about a quartet of insane soldiers who live only to, as Randy says, “Kick Nazi ass.”

Basically, it’s Inglourious Basterds: The Videogame.

The trailer showed Nazis getting mowed down with chainguns, suffering axes in the face and feeling the full payload of a stun gun to the nuts. I am already sold, but it’ll also include four-player co-op for the campaign.

Brothers in Arms Furious 4 will be in stores for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in the first half of 2012.
