At Gamescom, Rob "Read the effin'" Manuel was lucky enough to play Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. One of the announcements of the game that came out of the German game show was the game's overkill mode. Here's a description of it, from our Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel preview.
"One of the new additions comes in the form of an overkill system. As the bodies begin to pile up, a bar at the top fills in until you're ready to pull the trigger to activate overkill. Either person can activate it, and you don't need to do it together in order for it to work. You run faster, take less damage, and dish out more pain for a limited time. During my demo, I usually triggered it when things got a little too hot and I needed a little breathing room. A couple of times, a good overkill at the beginning of a new area can easily clear out the enemies as they come barreling out of the door."
