Army Of Two: The 40th Day Is In January

EA has nailed down a January 2010 release date for Army of Two: The 40th Day, with exclusive access to the game's Extraction multiplayer mode for those putting down their money early.

Army of Two: The 40th Day is the eagerly anticipated sequel to Army of Two, in which Salem and Rios struggle to ignore their feelings for each other on battlefields around the globe. Be prepared to get your manly fist-bumping on come January 12th, the date The 40th Day lands on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Along with the release date announcement, EA Montreal also reveals that players preordering the game will gain early access to the Extraction multiplayer mode, which pits teams of four against waves of enemies as they move from point to point across a ruined cityscape. Preordering customers will have the mode all to themselves for a month, after which they have to let everyone else come play.
