Army of Two: The 40th Day Demo Goes Live December 17

EA Montreal has announced a demo for Army of Two: The 40th Day will be available as a free download on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace on December 17th. The demo will include most of the first level in the game, where the iconic two-man private military team of Salem and Rios find themselves trapped in Shanghai as it falls under attack. Players will experience the focused co-operative action that has made The 40th Day one of next year’s most anticipated games. A demo for the PlayStation Portable will also be available for free on the PlayStation Network in North America on January 7th and in Europe on January 14th. All versions of the game will launch on January 13, 2010 worldwide.

“The 40th Day is non-stop action in an explosive Shanghai. The game has been designed with a focus on co-op gameplay and it has been our goal to refine this core experience in all aspects of the game,” said executive producer Reid Schneider. “The demo will give players the opportunity to experience this evolution and the new co-op moves and tactics available to players at any time in the game.”
