Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel – first gameplay trailer released

Tuesday, 14th August 2012 17:50 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, the new tactical co-op title from Visceral Games, kicked off EA’s gamescom press conference with executive producer Julian Bleak explaining how the team used Frostobite 2 to leverage the game’s detailed destruction.

A new feature, called Overkill was revealed, which allows the player and their partner bring “massive destruction” to enemies for a limited period of time. Players gain Overkill by eliminating enemies, and it makes bullets more explosive.

The first look at Ao2’s gameplay was shown with split screen featuring prominently. At one point, Alpha hopped into a helicopter and used a chain gun to turn ground enemies into bits and pieces.

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is out in March 2013. The gamescom trailer is below.

    Shitty music ruins another potentially good trailer. Looking forward to the game though.

    That cheesy rap music is pretty awful, yes. When it kicks in your brain has a meltdown and goes “Wait, what the shit is this?”

    Absolutely, but what I’m dying to know is whether it comes with a girlfriend mode or not.

    Seems like the frostbite engine 2 can only do brown, guess no mirrors edge 2 until frostbite 3

    Yup, Frostbite 2 can only do brown.

    That’s why BF3 is criticised for being too blue.

    How the hell did they managed to make something that was already incredibly derivative and uninspired even more derivative and uninspired than it already was?

    I have no idea, but congrats EA, you managed it.

    Frostbyte 2 had beautiful babies and this one is ugly as hell.

    Kill it with fire.

    The blue filter in BF3 never really bothered me, but for some reason, in every game using that engine it just looks like the sun exploded.

    It’s pretty much all I notice when I see a Frostbite game these days. Thermonuclear lighting.

    ‘Shitty’ music, #1, really? I suppose some pompous Gregson Williams or a three second teh japanese midi loop would suit it better?
