Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel, the third installment to EA's blockbuster action franchise, has been announced.
Developed by Visceral games, the creators of Dead Space, Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel sends players to the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo. Working for Tactical Worldwide Operations, the two operatives are dropped in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit.
Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel is said to have a "more intense, mature, and grittier tone" than its predecessors.
“Our goal with Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel is to apply our key design principles – immersive, challenging gameplay, intense narrative and focus on quality – to help improve a franchise we feel has always had a lot of potential," said Visceral Games GM Steve Papoutsis.
The Devil's Cartel will feature both online and split-screen co-op and a "deeper more advanced upgrade and customization system". You will be able to customize your own Alpha And Bravo to set yourself apart from your friends.
“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 Visceral Games executive producer Julian Beak. “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.”
Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel will be available in March 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3.
