Electronic Arts will be releasing Army of Two: The 40th Day in January. However, potential game customers can get in the game early…..not by playing, but by creating. The game has a custom uniform and armor creator, which allows players to create their own look, and then play with the custom duds on their own characters when the game is released in January. Gaming has evolved a great deal over the years, and it’s exciting to see developers embrace the idea that users would like to (and will) create their own content.
My brother and I are still playing the original Army of Two, and we like it quite a bit. Army of Two: 40th Day will be a day one purchase for us. When I emailed him to tell him about the custom armor creation, he replied, “I put My Little Pony emblems on your shoulder pads. Deal with it.” I imagine that the possibilities are endless. I’m thinking my brother would look great in battle armor emblazoned with the Care Bears or Smurfs.
