Veterans and Ubisoft Brothers in Arms Veterans and Ubisoft Brothers in Arms

Ubisoft announced an endorsement from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Foundation for the Brothers in Arms video game from Gearbox Software. The VFW Foundation ensures that the legacy of combat veterans is protected and nurtured, and provides support to American troops, veterans and their families. Available on Xbox and PC in Fall 2004, Brothers in Arms will immerse players in the historic invasion of Normandy during World War II -- with authentic imagery, sound, and gameplay.

The VFW Foundation believes that Brothers in Arms will help us reach our goal of increasing awareness about the sacrifices of veterans, said VFW Foundation President, John Senk. Video games are the new medium for storytelling and Brothers in Arms accurately depicts the contributions made by veterans during World War II.

The endorsement from the VFW Foundation, the largest combat veterans organization in the world, helps to demonstrate the high degree of authenticity and the proper treatment of the subject matter that Gearbox invested in the development of Brothers in Arms. Based on a true story, Brothers in Arms will immerse gamers into the gritty, uncensored and emotionally-charged side of war. Gamers will embark on a perilous eight day journey through realistic battlefields meticulously recreated from aerial reconnaissance images, U.S. Army Signal Corps photos and eye-witness accounts. Players of all skill levels can battle their way through an intense, realistic experience using the innovative and accessible command and control system featured in Brothers in Arms.
