How tough are The Expendables? Those aren't parachutes they're wearing.

So according to the press release from Ubisoft here's what fans will be able to expect from the gameplay:

Players can join up to three friends locally and online to experience all-out action in cinematic, close quarters combat or while controlling an arsenal of vehicles in exotic locations including Somalian deserts, Burmese jungles and more.

Expendables Tip #4: It's always a good idea to face tanks head on

What's that? You're curious about what story might be found the like of The Expendables 2 video game? Well according to Ubisoft:

Building on the universe created in the high-octane, star-studded movies, The Expendables 2 Videogame invites gamers on an adventure to rescue an extremely valuable, kidnapped billionaire. It's all business, until all hell breaks loose and the explosive mix of testosterone and kerosene detonates in a massive fireball that never lets up. The adventure concludes right where the new movie begins, creating a continuous story experience for fans of the Expendables' hard-boiled brand of action.

Certainly there must have been some way to resolve this dispute without heavy explosives?

Okay, okay. So in all likelihood the game will probably disappear faster than Barney Ross's reload time, but there's always something to appreciate in mindless co-op shooters. If the game can manage to actually be FUN, then there stands a chance that this will provide more than an evening or two of laughs from many a gamer out there. Of course, it probably won't shake the dreaded curse of Awful Licensed Video Games that pervades titles even today.

Man, the cast of Tail Spin sure seemed friendlier as a kid.
