Blockbuster Videogame Before Release
EA Montreal today announced a demo
for ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY will be available as a free download on the
PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace on December 17th. The demo will
include most of the first level in the game, where the iconic two-man private
military team of Salem and Rios find themselves trapped in Shanghai as it falls
under attack. Players will experience the focused co-operative action that has
made The 40th Day one of next year’s most anticipated games. A demo for the
PlayStation Portable (PSP) will also be available for free on the PlayStation
Network in North America on January 7th and in Europe on January 14th.
Army of Two: The 40th DAY is the
sequel to the 2008 multi-platinum co-op shooter. Players must work as a team to
survive relentless enemy assaults and escape the city as it collapses around
them. The 40th Day delivers an organic and immersive cooperative adventure with
one of the most robust weapon customization systems ever found in a videogame.
Players can mix and match weapon parts found in the world and execute strategic
two-man tactics that create a one-of-a-kind co-op action experience.
“THE 40TH DAY is non-stop action in
an explosive Shanghai. The game has been designed with a focus on co-op gameplay
and it has been our goal to refine this core experience in all aspects of the
game,” said executive producer Reid Schneider. “The demo will give players the
opportunity to experience this evolution and the new co-op moves and tactics
available to players at any time in the game.”
