Electronic Arts has announced Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, the third installment to action franchise that focuses on two player co-operative gameplay.
Developed by Visceral Games, the creators of Dead Space, Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel re-sets the series with a more mature and grittier tone. Players will find themselves on the streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), a PMC outfit that drops them in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment.
“We wanted to refresh the Army of Two franchise for a new generation of action gamers, and at the same time, stay true to the core concept that really made the first two games fan favorites,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games.
Featuring both online and split-screen co-op, Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel gives players the chance to distinguish themselves from their friends by providing a deeper upgrade and customization system. From the mask that protects them in battle to the very weapons that keep them alive, players can customize their own Alpha and Bravo as they see fit.
Army of Two The Devil's Cartel will be available in March 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
