Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel announced for 2013

[Update: Destructoid has been told Carlos Ferro is voicing Alpha. THAT IS A THING WE KNOW!] The Army of Two series hasn't exactly set the world on fire, but Electronic Arts clearly must be making some bank off it. Army of Two...

Layoffs and reorganization continue at Electronic Arts

It looks like EA's "restructuring" just keeps on going. Up to 50 staff at EA Montreal may lose their jobs. EA confirmed this, but said that many of the staff will be moved to other projects and only a "small number" will leav...

Rumor: Army of Two sequel is Army of Four

Whoever spilled the beans to Kotaku yesterday is spilling some more. The latest EA rumor concerns another Army of Two sequel, one that hopes to up the ante with four-player co-op as opposed to the traditional two.  Army ...

Army of Two's Salem and Rio see the world

Army of Two: The 40th Day is out on store shelves now, and we've reviewed it. Usually this means the end of the line for trailers and such, but Electronic Arts has one more up its sleeve. Above you can watch Salem and Rio tr...

Review: Army of Two: The 40th Day
by Jim Sterling

Army of Two didn't exactly set the gaming world aflame when it released back in 2008. In fact, the only remarkable thing about EA Montreal's co-op shooter was its sheer tastelessness, as daring duo Salem and Rios fist-bumped and cracked wise over the corpses of Middle Eastern terrorists. 

Despite the first game's critical reception, EA Montreal clearly did well enough to deserve another crack of the whip, and thus has returned with Army of Two: The 40th Day. Toning down the inappropriate behavior and ramping up the graphics, Army of Two's latest installment could be considered quite the improvement. However, that might not be saying much.

So, just how much of an improvement is 40th Day? Have Salem and Rios finally been given something that deserves a fist-bump, or are these two mercenaries doomed to mediocrity forever? Read on as we review Army of Two: The 40th Day.

EA: No more Killing brown people for cash in Army of Two

When Army of Two was released in 2008, it upset a number of people because it starred two fist-bumping mercenaries who shot terrorists in Afghanistan so that they could gold-plate their guns. Apparently, this was wrong, and E...

Army of Two: the 40th Day TV spot appears, is serious

One of the first -- if not the first -- TV spots for Army of Two: the 40th Day doesn’t measure up to the brilliant bit of marketing we witnessed with Borderlands. No midgets, no three-balled bosses, or loot are shown. ...

Salem and Rios like GameStop, hate cash registers

This morning’s Army of Two: the 40th Day trailer is a return to the ridiculous. It features the functionally retarded (and venerable) Salem and Rios during a release day event at a GameStop.  If you care to take a...

Army of Two: the 40th Day lets you design your own mask

Mask designs don’t define Army of Two: the 40th Day’s Salem and Rios. The two are their own dudes, capable of making their own bro-tacular choices. But what badass in the PMC universe doesn’t paint his stee...
