EA has announced Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, the third installment developed by Visceral Games, will release next year.
The co-op title takes place on the “deadly streets of Mexico,” as Alpha and Bravo find themselves dropped into the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment “full of corruption and deceit.”
“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.
“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 Frostbite 2 game will contain both online and split-screen co-op, and will contain a more advanced upgrade and customization system, allowing players to customize Alpha and Bravo.
The title will grace the September issue of Game Informer, and the magazine will include a feature on the title. Artwork is through here, and a video from the site is below.
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will be available in March 2013 PS3 and Xbox 360. The official website has also been updated here.
