I never got around to trying Army of Two because my 1UP co-workers constantly screamed while reviewing it. Electronic Arts has been unusually honest about the original's faults in talking about the sequel, Army of Two: The 40th Day, which is inching me closer to giving it a shot. It won't be long, either; EA has announced the sequel will be released on January 12.
Europe gets it a few days earlier -- January 8.
EA and BioWare's Dragon Age: Origins announced several pre-order incentives yesterday and Army of Two: The 40th Day isn't any different. Gamers who drop money on the game ahead of release will have month-long exclusive access to the multiplayer mode Extraction. The mode will open up for everyone after a month has passed.
