EA's first original title for next-gen systems.
Electronic Arts announced today that it's new Montreal studio is developing ARMY OF TWO for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. According to EA, the title will redefine strategic two player co-op play by putting gamers "into hot spots ripped from current day headlines." Players will use unique two man strategies and tactics, with the game allowing players to switch on the fly with either an intelligent computer-controlled player (dubbed "Partner AI") or an actual human being.
Alain Tascan, VP and General Manager of EA Montreal has been serving as Executive Producer on the title. Tascan comments, "ARMY OF TWO is a first for EA in many ways. This is the first EA studio to be built entirely from the ground-up. This is EA's first original title for the next-gen systems. ARMY OF TWO is the first game to put players inside tactical warfare involving Private Military Corporations."
Reid Schneider, Senior Producer at EA Montreal noted, "This is the game we've always wanted to create. Until now, the hardware would not allow us to deliver truly intelligent AI characters. We've built this game with co-operative TWO man gameplay as the centerpiece of the experience. Whether you're playing with PAI or a friend, it's about the TWO man missions, TWO man strategies and the TWO man advantage that really sets this game apart."
