Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Language
This is a co-operative third-person shooter in which players try to survive the city of Shanghai as it collapses all around them. Players shoot their way out of the city after a mysterious invasion: they assassinate targets, infiltrate guarded areas, and kill many enemies in their way. Sniper rifles, shotguns, machine guns, and grenades are used during the frenetic firefights; knives and bayonets can be used to "stealth-attack" enemies from behind. The gun battles are depicted realistically and are often intense: civilians and enemies scream when shot; the dead can be shot on the ground—sometimes causing decapitation; characters emit frequent splashes of blood that stain the city streets, walls. Precise shots from guns, rifles, or sniper rifles may result in civilians' and enemies' heads exploding in a red blood effect. Players also have the ability to use people as human shields, and can opt to kill hostages at the expense of "morality points"—an "execute" or "release" option is given to players. Characters use profanity such as "sh*t," "a*shole," and "b*tch" in dialogue, in battle.
A carefully orchestrated series of mysterious catastrophes is dragging Shanghai, China to the brink of ruin, and now the Army of Two must fight their way through ravaged city districts as they try to beat the odds and uncover the secret of the Fortieth Day.
ARMY OF TWO: THE 40th DAY features a bigger playbook of new co-op moves that either player can use at any time, opening up new strategies and countless choices for both players. The result is a bigger, better, more organic and immersive co-op experience that lets gamers put their best two-man tactics to use whenever and wherever they want.
