Today, Ubisoft confirmed speculation that they are working on a video game tie-in for The Expendables 2, the star-studded explosion-fest coming to theaters August 17. Finally, the industry's biggest embarrassment - the lack of a game based on the original film - will be corrected.

They've also released a small batch of screen shots which you can peruse above. As you can tell from the shots, the game will be co-op based with up to four-players joining the fight to rescue a fragile billionaire. 

According to the press release, the rescue attempt is "all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up." Sounds about right. The Expendables 2 will be available on XBLA, PSN, and PC presumably around the same date as the movie.

We have contacted Ubisoft to find out if there will be explosions in this game. We weren't sure.

    Let's see, video game tie-ins to movies are usually awful, mediocre at best. Sequels to movies are usually worse than the first movie, with a few notable exceptions. The first Expendables movie was horrible to begin with. Good lord, how terrible is this game going to be?

    I don't know man, sequels tend to be better, Empire, X2, Spidey 2. You have exceptions like Lost World or IronMan 2 but it is no rule that sequels suck. Other than that this game could be quite shallow but perhaps it is fun and that would be enough for the fanbase of the film.
