EA Announces Army Of Two: The Devil’s Cartel
Electronic Arts announced today the sequel to Army of Two, entitled Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel developed by Dead Space creators Visceral Games.
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel game takes place in Mexico in the middle of a drug war. Players will be able to team up for some co-op action. Using the power of the Frostbite 2 engine, players will be able to shape and destroy the environment around them.
“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,” Julian Beak, executive producer, Visceral Games, said. “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.”
Steve Papoutsis, general manager of Visceral Games, added, “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.”
Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel is set to release March 2013 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
