Army of Two uses 9/11 imagery

The latest trailer of EA’s military shooter Army of Two, which will bereleased forPS3 and 360 on 16 November, opens with footage taken from the 9/11 terror attack, showing smoke bellowing from one of the World Trade Centre towers.

A 2006 press release stated that Army of Two “will throw gamers into hot spots ripped from current day headlines” and having the opening cinematic begin with the events of 9/11, it certainly seems intent on living up to that premise.

Considering that there have already been a number of films about the events of 9/11, it’s not really a surprise that games would eventuallyuse the sensitivesubject matter as a basis for plot. However, with this being the first game to do so, it’ll be interesting to see how gamers and the public react.
