EA Montreal Announces ARMY OF
TWO: THE 40th DAY
The Ultimate Two-Man Private
Military Team is Back in Action Delivering New and Groundbreaking Cooperative
EA Montreal today 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. EA Montreal is once again leading the next evolution in co-op shooter
games offering a fresh, innovative and fluid co-op experience with a deep
arsenal of customizable weapons so players can team up with their friends online
for the fight of their lives.
“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.
ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY will be
available for the Xbox 360, the PLAYSTATION 3 and the PSP this winter.
