Digital downloads have offered gamers a chance to pull off killer combos with Freddy Krueger, slay zombies with Sarah Michelle Gellar and now, thanks to Ubisoft and its upcoming title "The Expendables 2 Videogame," some of the biggest action stars in cinema history are entering the mix.

Choose between Sylvester Stallone as Barney Ross accompanied by a few familiar faces from the sequel to 2010's action packed blockbuster film in 4-player co-op campaign and challenge modes. Just a heads up to anyone who catches me online playing this game when it comes out, I've shot dibs on playing as Dolph Lundgren (Gunner Jensen). With Dolph at my disposal, I will become an "Army of One". Other characters announced will be Yin Yang (Jet Li) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews).

"The Expendables 2 Videogame" will be available for download on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and PC this summer featuring vehicular combat, signature cinematic kills and a whole lot of things that go boom.
