After much rumor and speculation, Army of Two: The 40th Day, the sequel to last year’s good-but-could-have-been-better co-op shooter Army of Two, has finally been officially unveiled by EA. In their next mission, the two-man army of Salem and Rios will head to Shanghai, China to solve the mystery behind a series of orchestrated catastrophes that have left the city in shambles. EA Montreal — developer of the original game — is promising a “bigger, better, more organic and immersive co-op experience” in the sequel, along with an even deeper customizable weapon arsenal.

“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.”

Like the first game, Army of Two: The 40th Day will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360. But surprisingly, a PSP version is also in development for this installment. I am very interested to see how EA goes about adapting the game to portable play. All three versions are scheduled to launch this winter.
