Army of Two: The 40th Day Extraction Mode Trailer & New Screens

Those of you who have been following the Army of Two: The 40th Day coverage here on x360a will be more than aware of the game's Extraction multiplayer mode.

We touched on Army of Two 2's Extraction mode in our interview with EA Montreal's Matt Turner last month, but today EA released a video showing off the mode hoping to tempt a few of you to slap down the cash on that pre-order.

A quick bit of info to get those of you who weren't aware of it, up to speed. Extraction mode is a 4 player multiplayer mode that is reminiscent of Gears of War's Horde mode, but players need to move from point A to B, rather than just stand still and defend a point on the map. The game mode will be exclusive for the first month to preorderers, and the rest will get it via a download a month after launch (for free might I add).

Check out the 6 new screens in our gallery here (or take a look at the sample below) as well as the latest Extraction multiplayer teaser.

Many games are attempting to pull off an endless enemies mode now. Seems decent that you have to move to specific points, but not enough to entice me to pre-order.

Cool. I hope this type of game mode doesn't get worn out and boring with so many games doing it.

One month exclusive access? I'm assuming that means before the game is out and this isn't a pay add on?

@#3 - No, the game comes out Jan 12th with a month exclusive access. No preorder? No Extraction till Feb. And no, it's free =P

That's cool- almost letting the pre-order players beta test the game mode for the public release :)

@8 its a free download in Feb. and pre-ordering it doesn't cost you anything. I agree its BS you actually had to pay for the MP mode in Resident Evil 5 to, but this isn't like RE5 this is a free DLC.

Unfortunately i'll probably end up never playing this mode. Theres to many other games releasing for me to pre-order all of them and by the time its free i'll be playing Mass Effect2, Bioshock 2, and Lost Planet 2 and after that BFBC2 is goint to take over my life.

Kind of interesting that it's 4 player co-op when the game only has two main protagonists.

I dig on developers implementing this "horde" style gameplay, it adds a lot more longevity and replay ability to their games. The first Army of 2 was pretty fun, though not fun enough for me to preorder the 2nd even with this bonus. Especially if the bonus is going to be free a month later when the price may be dropped a little for the game itself.

Seeing how they never cared to fix multiplayer component of the first game I really wonder how well will this game do...

I loved the first one, I will definitely be buying this. Also because my friends work at EA and I will be getting the good old employee discount for 20 bucks :D.

Looks pretty good, but my early 2010 will be spent with Mass Effect 2, Aliens vs. Predator, and BioShock 2...

Funny Horde didn't do this type of gameplay style first when you just shoot enemies just because you can. Rainbow 6 did it first years ago.

this is good news. this is the pre order deals they should do. didnt they do something for exclusive weapons with a gamestop pre-order last time. i dont have them and wish they would be on the marketplace. i wouldnt care if they even charged a bit for the pre order guns for the first game. so is this dlc gonna be like the veteran map pack for the first game? free and with chievos? anyways...liked the first one and will probly get the second one after the price drops a few months after the release. i am always more willing to buy a game that has free dlc for it then a game that has paid dlc. naturally

Rainbow 6 had T-Hunt, no endless wave style things. Gears of War nailed it with Hoarde mode. If we're just talking Players vs AI, well, we've been doing that since Perfect Dark 64. Proxy Mines FTW!

Screenshot 9 = Magless shooting!

I was gonna pre order it anyway, bcos i loved the 1st game..

R6V has Terrorist hunts
GoW has Horde
WaW has Zombies
Halo has Firefight
Resi 5 has Mercenries
MW2 has Spec ops
