Some might find the idea of making money from war morally corrupt. For Salem and Rios, who are Army of Two's protagonists, it's just another day at the office. The game starts off with the pair being deployed to Somalia in 1993 by the US Army. Their mission is to work with a Security and Strategy Cooperation operative on an assassination job. Soon after, they are recruited by SSC as mercenaries, and you spend the rest of the game traveling around the world to various conflict zones and making money. At its core, Army of Two is a two-player co-op game that can be played in either split-screen or online. You can also play the game solo, with the console controlling your partner. Aside from co-op mode, the game supports two-versus-two competitive multiplayer online, where you must defend or defeat your objective from the other team. Army of Two is due to hit shelves around Australia on Thursday.
