More murder, more fist bumps.
EA announced today that Visceral Games, the folks behind the Dead Space series, are currently working on a new Army of Two game, Army of TWO: The Devil’s Cartel for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The Devil’s Cartel marks, what Visceral are calling, a “re-start” for the Army of Two series and will follow two operatives named Alpha an Bravo. Our two heroes are members of a private military organization, called T.W.O, that is tasked with ending a war between two drug cartel’s in mexico and will feature both online, and split-screen co-op.
“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.”
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.”
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is scheduled for a March 2013 release. Stay tuned for more details.
