New Mercs 2 screens of destruction

Ten shots of the Mohawk madman blowing stuff up

Here are ten new shots of EA's open-world third-person shooter, Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.

The emphasis here is the freedom to explore, drive and destroy whatever the hell you want. Almost everything you see can be destroyed from trees and vehicles to entire buildings, and you'll almost always have the firepower to do just that.

"Skyscrapers, freeway intersections - everything's good to go in this napalm-fuelled playground of destruction," says this preview, which has loads more gameplay info.

PC, PS3, 360 and PS2 versions are headed for a September 9 release. Check out the shots below.
