EA and Visceral Games announce Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel launches on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 26, 2013 along with the Overkill Edition offering number of pre-order bonuses.
Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel marks a new direction for the series as developers Visceral Games utilize the award-winning Frotsbite 2 engine from DICE to power their next over-the-top, co-op third-person shooter.
“With Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel we wanted to take the series in a new direction while also leveraging the aspects that made the first two Army of TWO games unique,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games. “We knew coming out of the gate that meaningful co-op gameplay, customization and over-the-top action would be key pillars for us, and we’re bringing these elements to the next level by presenting them in a setting that is more serious in order to dial up the intensity.”
