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 introduces morality into the mix. Not only will players have the opportunity to use their co-op skills to save hostages, but this new mechanic also forces players to make tough decisions as they encounter morally precarious situations as they fight to survive the disaster that is ravaging Shanghai. These life or death decisions present players with a dilemma as they are forced to choose the lesser of two evils.
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.
Favorite co-op moves like step-jump, back-to-back, tactical shield, and co-op snipe, are supplimented with an array of new moves to master. Perform a hostage grab and force your enemies to surrender as your partner subdues them or simply grab a hostage and use them as a meat shield while you continue to lay waste to everything that moves. Alternatively, mock surrender as your partner takes aim or surrender together and simultaneously take your targets by surprise.
