In their efforts to market Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel as a slightly more mature game than its predecessors, EA released a new trailer in which professional skateboards play the game’s splitscreen co-op.
But Chris, what do professional skateboarders have to do with Army of Two? you ask. The answer is simple: nothing. Absolutely nothing. But by associating Army of Two with these skaters—”Steezus Christ” and the McClung Brothers, who sound more like a trailer park band than skateboarders—Visceral and EA have all but admitted their target market. Talk of Army of Two being a less bro-tacular seems misleading.
But I’ll will let the trailer speak for itself. There are worthwhile shots of gameplay to be seen between shots of skateboarders passing toilet paper to one another while in the stall. Yup.
