EA have announced the third installment of their co-op focused third-person shooter series, Army of Two. 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.
The third instalment is subtitled, The Devil’s Cartel, and 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. The game is scheduled for release in March 2013.
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.
