EA has this morning announced Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, the third instalment in the popular co-op franchise, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Developed by Visceral Games, and scheduled for a release in March 2013, The Devil’s Cartel takes to the streets of Mexico with a grittier and more mature tone.
“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 favourites,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games. “With meaningful, seamless co-op gameplay at its core and explosive new tag-team features, gamers will have to work together tactically and strategically as they push through a city dominated by one of Mexico’s deadliest drug cartels.”
The game's blurb reads: 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 and more advanced upgrade and customisation system. From the mask that protects them in battle to the very weapons that keep them alive, players can customise their own Alpha and Bravo to create the deadliest mercenary team as they see fit.
