Army of Two deploys November 15

Electronic Arts' internally developed third-person shooter shipping out for Xbox 360, PS3 this fall.

by

Electronic Arts' tactic for winning this holiday season seems to be peppering retail shelves with a torrent of shooters. Providing the heavy-weapons support for its extensive lineup of games set for release in Q4 2007 are Crytek's Crysis, Valve's Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, and Pandemic's Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, as well as its own internally developed Army of Two and Medal of Honor Heroes 2.

Today, the megapublisher gave further indication on how it will execute on its Q4 battle plans. Army of Two for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will storm North American and European retail shelves on November 15. Developing the co-op-oriented third-person shooter will be EA Montreal, whose previous credits include SSX Blur for the Wii.

With an emphasis on two-player tactical combat, Army of Two puts players in control of a two-man mercenary outfit that travels the world seeking employ from the highest bidder. Players will be afforded a wide range of options to make the most of their manpower while navigating hazards and getting the jump on their targets. Army of Two will also feature extensive weapon customization, and an "aggro meter," which clues players in to which of the two characters the enemy is concentrating its fire on at any given time.

Army of Two has not yet been rated or priced. For more on the co-op shooter, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Finally coming out on 15-Nov. However, very confusing. Confirm if this game is a third person shooter or first person shooter? Stated on the Genre is modern first person shooter, but latest news it is a third person shooter.

The characters are transparent from time to time in the videos. What's that all about?

Man this should be interesting, hope that the gameplay though uses cooperative mode to the fullest and not just some dumb AI crap that hampered the single player mode of Gears.

mjwickstrom1- Army of Two isn't a FPS , its a third-person shooter.

This game looks great. I saw the trailer, it looks to have a lot of action and lots of laughs. Another title among the many other fantastic looking titles lined up for the rest of 07.

@runstalker I agree. There's at least 6 games that I have on my radar ... I don't know how I'll have the time to play them all.

I foresee record-breaking video game sales this fall. People buying games for seven (7) supported platforms - DS, Wii, PSP, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, PC - and some huge high-profile titles ...it's a madhou$e.

This game is going to get lost with all the other the big name games. Army of Two would be selling well right now.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh.... so many good games coming out. My parents buy me alll my games and we agreed to a deal of one game every month. With the exception of three months: January since my birthday is that month, June if I do well in school I can get an extra game, December since it is Christmas. Well I can put this on my not to get list for November. But then I am stuck with a choice between Haze, Galaxies, Unreal Tournament 3, and Uncharted Drakes Fortune. Oh well whatever I don't get in November I can get for Christmas.

Well this holiday's line-up is stocking up greatly and is not to dissappoint. I haven't heard much about army of two, but small armies seem to be in fashion for Q4 (Mercenaries 2, Kane+Lynch, Army of Two, etc)
