Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel slips into stores on March 26

EA and Visceral Games have announced that Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 26, 2013.

The Devil’s Cartel is Visceral’s first crack at the Army of Two series, and they want put their stamp on it with a story that is “more intense and mature.” The game’s topical plot focuses on the titular Army of Two protecting a Mexican politician from a bloodthirsty drug lord.

“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.”

To sweeten the pot, EA has also announced that everyone who pre-orders The Devil’s Cartel will be upgraded to the “Overkill Edition,” which comes packed with exclusive powerups and weaponry.

More details on the contents of the Overkill Edition can be found after the break. (more…)

Army of Two 3 announced; EA gives development duties to Visceral

Game Informer has revealed the cover of their September issue, and it’s EA’s Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. They’ve handed the reins over to Visceral Montreal, who have proven their mettle with the much-loved Dead Space franchise. There are a lot of changes being made – there will be two new characters, Alpha and Bravo, as well as a more mature storyline and feel to the game. The game will also be developed using the Frostbite 2 engine, which is great news for… well… everyone.

Producer Zach Mumbach said, “I felt like the first two Army games were good games, but they weren’t great games. They were memorable and they were fun to play, but they weren’t on that level where you’re going to tell all your friends, ‘Man, you have to play this game.” I think that Visceral being involved, especially on Frostbite 2, is just a huge opportunity.”

Game Informer has their hands-on impression in the issue, as well as some video coverage on their site. All I have to say is that this better not interfere with the development of Dead Space 3, or limbs are going to roll. (I’ll have to cut off the rolly ones.)
