In the kind of crime you usually only see in movies and video games, a truck carrying a full load of copies of video games (mostly FPS Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway) was stolen in England over the weekend. Cops spotted the lorry's stolen tags and confiscated it. But that's not the end of the story. You see, while the truck was sitting in the police impound lot, someone broke into it and emptied it of the stock of video games. Bold move, robbing a police station.
Seven pallets of titles, including 16,000 copies of Brothers In Arms: Hell’s Highway, are missing, but the bobbies say they're following leads to catch the crooks. A police spokesman said:
“We are pursuing a number of lines of inquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this.”
Ubisoft said not to worry if you're an English gamer as "more stock is being parachuted in.”
Hell's Highway is out now in the States for the PS3, 360 and PC. If you do manage to get your hands on a copy, here are some strategy tips to help you along.
