EA and Visceral Games Deliver the Ultimate Tactical Co-Op Experience in Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel
The Definitive Co-op Franchise Heads to Mexico with Explosive Action
and Devastating Destruction Powered by Frostbite 2
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced Army of TWO™ The
Devil's Cartel, the gritty third installment to the blockbuster
action franchise celebrated for its intense, two player co-operative
gameplay. Developed by Visceral Games™, the award-winning creators of Dead
Space™, Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel re-sets the series
that pioneered the co-op experience with a more intense, mature and
grittier tone. Players will find themselves on the deadly streets of
Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide
Operations (T.W.O.), a PMC outfit that drops them in the middle of a
drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit. With
the ability to unleash the power of ultimate destruction, players will
need to work together as their objectives unravel, allegiances begin to
blur and they face off against a ruthless opposition.
"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," said Julian
Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games. "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."
Featuring both online and split-screen co-op, Army of TWO The Devil's
Cartel gives players the chance to distinguish themselves from their
friends by providing a deeper and more advanced upgrade and
customization system. From the mask that protects them in battle to the
very weapons that keep them alive, players can customize their own Alpha
and Bravo to create the deadliest mercenary team as they see fit.
Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel will be available in March 2013
for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360®
video game and entertainment system. This product has not yet been rated
