Ready for more co-op fun?
EA has announced Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel , currently in development at Visceral Games and slated to launch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2013.
Featuring DICE's vaunted Frostbite 2 engine, the new effort is dedicated to "resetting and refreshing the franchise." We'll travel to Mexico, where two highly trained operatives from Tactical Worldwide Operations (TWO) will take on the cartels. At some point, we'll "unleash the power of ultimate destruction" but above all else, we'll have to continue to work as a team to get the job done. The game will also boast online and split-screen co-op play (as well it should), plus an upgrade and customization system that is "deeper and more advanced" than ever before. More depth is always good, right?
After what we considered to be a mediocre debut, Army of Two: The 40th Day really stepped things up on all fronts, and we're hoping for another step in the right direction.
