A while back EA announced ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY. The ultimate two-man private military team of Salem and Rios return in this epic sequel where they must survive and prevail in a city under siege.
“With ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY, we’re pushing the tactical two-man military team into new battlegrounds offering a completely organic and rich co-op experience to deliver an action-packed co-op shooter this winter,” says Reid Schneider, Executive Producer, EA Montreal. “As chaos blankets Shanghai, China, you must rely on your partner to survive as you weave through a broken city left devastated in a mysterious wake.”
When a disaster of epic proportions strikes Shanghai, China, Rios and Salem find themselves right in the middle of it all-the wrong place, the wrong time, but the right team. A carefully orchestrated series of mysterious catastrophes is dragging Shanghai to the brink of ruin, and now the Army of Two must fight their way through ravaged city districts as they try to beat the odds and uncover the secret of the 40th Day.
ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY features a bigger playbook of new co-op moves that either player can use at any time, opening up new strategies and countless choices for both players. The result is a bigger, better, more organic and immersive co-op experience that lets gamers put their best two-man tactics to use whenever and wherever they want. Here at ZKG, we are still a little lukewarm on this title with the massive disappointment that was the first title, but with a sequel following so soon it appears that it sold well. Reports are that they have gotten rid of a lot of the cheap laughs and overall vulgarness of the first title in favor of a more restrained and serious feel and in my opinion that is just what this title needs. The game has some serious subject matter and 40th day seems to have that edge that the original didn’t have. Originally, we loved the concept and we still do but we just hope that EA executes it better this time.
