Under the dark cover of night, Ubisoft has air dropped us another image from its upcoming next-gen Jerry killer, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, which is scheduled for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 later this year.

Besides significant graphical improvements, Hell's Highway should be even more of a tactical challenge for armchair generals with developer Gearbox Software introducing a new, third squad to the action which consists of such heavy-hitters as bazooka and mortar teams.

The third game in the Brothers in Arms series, Hell's Highway follows a squad from the 101st Airborne Division as they take part in the World War II allied assault, Operation Market Garden. So, if it remains historically accurate, expect the game to take place over a nine day period.

Of course, we'll be extracting more Hell's Highway intel from E3, so stay posted.
