An Army of Two: The 40th Day demo’s hitting XBL and PSN this week.

The demo will include “most” of the shooter’s first level. Basically Salem and Rios are in Shanghai, something blows up, a lot of people get shot.

PR here. There’s a trailer after the break. A PSP demo’s out in January.

    Downloaded it this morning, booted it up. Then noticed that you NEED 2 people to play the demo.
    Guess i’ll play it splitscreen later though from what i’ve heard is isnt that good.

    What? There’s no AI support for the other character? That’s mental!

    Same as the first demo then, which is why I never ended up playing it.

    I can understand it being designed around MP co-op but it does have single player yet the demos do not!

    Yet the original (full game) obviously had an AI companion.

    Wow…

    Anyways, Pat’s capping this later. Me and him are gonna be playing it later (if my download finishes in time), so keep an eye out for that.

    Needless to say, it’s ridiculous there is no AI co-op.

    it’s ridiculous there is no AI co-op.

    … or anti aliasing. or a texture resolution that is better than that of half life. 1.

    No single player demo? That was a wasted download then…

    Still havnt played it. For those that have how is it? Mescaline seems to say bad but what does everyone else think?

    the game is fine, don’t get me wrong. the shooting itself is improved and customizing the weapons is neat. it’s quite a step up from part one, but still nowhere near Gears 2 quality.

    it’s just… the graphics feel really amateurish and some aspects of the demo are really, really annoying (unskippable cutscenes, random rocket launcher kills later on, no “single-player”).

    all in all, EA seems pretty confident, releasing a demo this long. I’m still excited because when the game clicks, it’s a lot of fun, but I can’t help but feel it has more potential there.
