EA Announce Army of TWO: The Devil’s Cartel
EA today announced the third installment of their co-op focused third-person shooter series, Army of Two.
The prior two games were developed by EA Montreal, EA has now moved the series to Dead Space creators, Visceral Games.
Set in the streets of Mexico players will take control of two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), dropped into a drug war for an assignment full of corruption and deceit.
Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games:
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. 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.
The Devil’s Cartel will feature online and split-screen co-op, it will also included a more advanced customisation system than what was seen in the previous two games.
Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel will be available on Xbox 360 and PS3, March 2013.
