Hell's Highway hits road Aug. 26

Latest installment in Brothers in Arms series gets release date for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.


Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway

It's said the path to hell is paved with good intentions, but in the case of Ubisoft's Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, the primary construction material has been delays. Originally announced for release in 2006, the shooter was pushed back to 2007, then again to early 2008, and once more to Ubisoft's current fiscal year. However, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway has at long last been given a concrete date.

The publisher today confirmed that Hell's Highway will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 26. Ubisoft had specified an August release window for the game back in April.

As with previous entries in the Brothers in Arms series, the character-driven story will unfold around a series of squad-based missions of the 101st Airborne Division. Set during World War II, the game tracks previous Brothers in Arms protagonists Matt Baker and Joe Harstock through 10 days as they try to secure a stretch of German-controlled road vital to the Allied forces' reinforcement plans.
