Army of Two out November

EA slaps its co-op shooter with that all important release date - November 15, 2007

EA sends word that its co-op shooter Army of Two will release on November 15 on Xbox 360 and PS3.

The publisher's made bold promises where Army of Two is concerned, like it's "set to redefine the co-op action/shooter genre".

Everything revolves around co-operation between the games' two protagonists, who are plunged into various hot spots and have to work together to achieve objectives. Naturally you can play it with a mate or AI, or seamlessly interchange between the two.

We're not sure about "redefine", but after having a bash at EA's HQ yesterday we
we're confident Army of Two will tear up PSN and Xbox Live over Christmas.

Whether it can surpass the fun, car-flinging teamwork of Realtime World's Crackdown though, remains to be seen.

Look for our hands-on impressions very soon.
