About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Ubisoft and developer Gearbox Software today announced that Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30, the highly-anticipated World War II game, has gone gold and will soon be on store shelves. The Xbox version will ship on March 1, and PlayStation and PC versions will ship shortly thereafter.

With its breakthrough squad-based combat and unprecedented authenticity, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 is poised to revolutionize the WWII genre. The pre-order campaign is currently under way for the title at the MSRP of $49.99.

Created by Gearbox Software, Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 is the most authentic WWII shooter ever, earning endorsements from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation and the Patton Museum. Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 is based on the true story of the 101st Airborne paratroopers who led the D-Day invasion and will immerse gamers in the gritty, uncensored and emotionally-charged side of war. The game's missions have been crafted using after action reports, aerial reconnaissance images, and eye-witness accounts, much of which is included in over five hours of bonus extras. Players of all skill levels can battle their way through twenty epic single player chapters or go online and challenge their friends with ten competitive and innovative multiplyer missions.

Customers who pre-order Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 will also receive a special bonus Penny Arcade Character Journal (PS2/Xbox) or an Official "Making Of" DVD (PC). Bonus items will ship with purchased product, and is only available while supplies last.
