EA has just announced that there’s going to be another Army of Two game, this one dubbed “The Devil’s Cartel”. The game will be released for “current generation” machines – so the PS3 and Xbox 360 – next March. When pretty much everyone seems to be dumping their current gen games.
The game will feature two new protagonists, and will sport a “more intense, mature and grittier tone” than the other two games which were reasonably intense, mature and gritty in the first place.
It’s all about Mexico (hence the subtitle) and will offer two player co-op (and not the four player system that was previously rumoured) with the two new guys – the wonderfully named Alpha and Bravo – rather than Rio and Salem.
“We wanted to refresh the Army of Two franchise for a new generation of action gamers,” said Julian Beak, executive producer, Visceral Games, “and at the same time, stay true to the core concept that really made the first two games fan favourites,” .
“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.”
Visceral are also working on another co-op game – Dead Space 3.
