Ubisoft and Gearbox Software announced today that Brothers In Arms Earned In Blood has shipped to retail stores for the Xbox and PC, with the PS2 version projected to ship later this month.

"Brothers In Arms is not only the most authentic and compelling World War II game on the market, it is also one of the best and highest-rated games released in the shooter genre," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing at Ubisoft. "Offering gamers a unique, squad-based gameplay style and the brand-new skirmish mode, Brothers In Arms Earned In Blood is set to be a huge hit this holiday season."

Brothers In Arms Earned In Blood adds new features and builds upon the elements that made Brothers In Arms Road to Hill 30(TM) a runaway success. Brothers In Arms features a new single-player narrative, new multiplayer missions, the all-new online cooperative-style Skirmish mode, and new weapons and vehicles.

"Our dream with Brothers In Arms is to use the video game medium to experience what it was like for the soldiers of the 101st Airborne in World War II," said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software. "With Earned in Blood, we've created a bigger, better and memorable true story experience that puts you into the boots of a real soldier with a real squad in a real war."
