You really have to wonder what goes through the mind of the marketers that dream up these kind of things. I know that I could have just as easily titled this post "Army of 2 Sequel Offers Early Bonus Content to Pre-Order Customers" But let's be realistic, it's just a dick move:
Gamers who pre-order Army of Two: The 40th Day now will have exclusive access to the game's all-new explosive multi-player mode, Extraction, at launch. This mode will be unlocked for all other players one month after the game ships. (Emphasis Mine)
Why can't you just package the game with night vision goggles like everyone else EA?
The worst thing is, extraction mode actually looks pretty damn fun. Here's the skinny:
Extraction pits a team of four players against a series of unique enemy waves as they move from point to point in the ruined city. Players must strategize as a unified team to combat waves of 40th Day Initiative forces while trying to get out alive.

In order to reach the extraction point players will have to survive through four battle zones in a series of four multiplayer maps, but it won't be easy! The difficulty ramps up as players progress, and ultimately it's exceedingly difficult as players face insurmountable odds.
Army of Two: The 40th Day is pegged for a January 21 2010 release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Portable.
