Gamers who enjoy a little portable FPS action with the iPhone and iPod Touch may see the sequel to Brothers in Arms: Hour of Heroes in the near future. According to Pocket Gamer, the latest installment-- called Brothers in Arms 2: Global Front-- is in the final stages of development and slated to hit the App Store this week. As of this writing, the game has not appeared online.
Unlike its predecessor, Global Front throws gamers into a first-person perspective. Typically FPS games published by Gameloft offer tight, easy-to-use controls, so this should be a real treat for portable BiA fans. And unlike its predecessor, Global Front is not a port of an existing game, but rather it was built from the ground up for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch.
TouchGen adds that the upcoming sequel will add twice the amount of gameplay seen in Hour of Heroes, now cranking out six hours of portable gaming madness. The single-player story spans over six different locations including Normandy to Africa. There's also an added multiplayer element that uses Gameloft's Live-like service also seen in its other two awesome FPS games: Modern Combat: Sandstorm and NOVA.
Although Hour of Heroes currently costs $4.99 on the App Store, the sequel may have a similar price tag. NOVA costs a meatier $6.99, whereas Modern Combat costs $4.99.
