EA has announced Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel.
A reboot to the Army of Two series, The Devil's Cartel promises a “more intense, mature and grittier tone”.
It features two characters, Alpha and Bravo, dropped in the middle of a drug war conflict on the streets of Mexico.
The Devil’s Cartel will include the two-player split-screen co-op play that Army of Two is known for.
Set to launch on Xbox 360 and PS3, The Devil’s Cartel is being developed by Dead Space developer Visceral Games.
Executive producer at Visceral Games, Julian Beak, said: “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 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.”
General manager of Visceral Games, Steve Papoutsis, said: “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.”
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is planned to be released March 2013.
