The third instalment in the Army of Two series has been announced.
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is in development by Visceral for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
According to the game’s publisher, EA, Devil’s Cartel introduces a “more intense, mature and grittier tone” in comparison to its predecessor. Split screen co-operative play and new character customisation options have also been confirmed.
Executive producer at Visceral, 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.”
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will be released in March 2013.
