Whereas former Brothers in Arms games focused on victorious moments in World War II, Hell's Highway concentrates on Operation Market Garden: the last major Allied defeat.
"In the first game it was like the first Star Wars, with Carantan like the Death Star where all the Rebels band together," explains head of Gearbox Randy Pitchford. "This story is more like The Empire Strikes Back. The bad guys are on top. It is not a good day for the Allies."
