Fans of explosions, unexpected references to the Wu-Tang Clan and dudes who are totally, definitely just friends rejoice! EA has unveiled a new teaser from the upcoming Army of Two: The 40th Day.
Despite being characterized as entirely “in-game footage,” the clip is a bit short on actual gameplay, though it does manage to depict the game’s new Chinese locale. Say what you will about the series’ characters (and the likelihood that they occasionally smooch each other), but developer EA Montreal knows how to craft a detailed, vibrant world.
Which, of course, then detonates with enough virtual force to make Michael Bay wet himself.
While I wasn’t a huge fan of the original Army of Two — in a sea of generic shooters, its only notable characteristics were easily insulted protagonists and the dubious ability to pimp your assault rifle — I have hopes that the sequel can amend the original’s flaws.
Army of Two: The 40th Day hits stores in “Winter 2009.”
