Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Announced at EA's Summer Showcase
During their Summer Showcase, EA announced a new title currently in development. Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is currently being worked on by Visceral Games and will run on the Frostbite 2.0 Engine; the same engine that powers games such as Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The game’s story revolves around two characters – Alpha and Bravo (how quaint) – who engage the heart of the drug trade and cartels in Mexico. The game will be sticking to the two-player co-cop gameplay that it has been known for, and will not be introducing any four-player co-op (as was previously rumored).
The original Army of Two was released in 2008 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; it saw moderate critical and commercial reception. A sequel, Army of Two: The 40th Day was released in 2010 and was also for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; that game saw reception similar to that of its predecessor.
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will be released on an unspecified date in March of 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
