Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel launches March 29, bonuses inside

Visceral Games and EA announced that the new Army of Two game, subtitled The Devil’s Cartel, will launch March 29 in the UK.

Set in Mexico, Alpha and Bravo, two military operatives, must find and neutralize a drug lord. Powered by the impressive Frostbite 2, the shooter promises strong co-op, and great customization options.

“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. We knew coming out of the gate that meaningful co-op gameplay, customisation 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”, said Julian Beak, executive producer, Visceral Games.

Visceral has also announced details of the Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel Overkill Edition, available to consumers who pre-order the game.

The Overkill Edition includes:

Early Access to Three Overkillers Contracts: Unleash massive destruction with three Contract variations designed for maximum rampage! Players must kill enemies and cause environment destruction to earn enough points to continuously stay in Overkill while making their way to the extraction point.

Tactical Co-op Gear: Lay down sustained cover fire with the TAH-9 side arm while decked out in the polymer textured outfit and mask or wield the Double D automatic shotgun while battling in the intimidating Overkill mask and outfit.

Celebrate the Day of the Dead: Bust out the Day of the Dead themed assault rifle and take on Mexico’s most ruthless drug lords in Day of the Dead themed outfit and masks designed by popular tattoo artists

    disappointed this has not been getting very good previews.
    IGN just finished ripping into it in a article today.
    sad, ive been begging for another army game since the 40th day released!
    and now i get it, but with this shit!
    sigh, ive said it once, twice, a billion times, and ill say it again.
    for once, just once, can we have a sequel that is actually a sequel and not a new IP!?
    god i hate EA!
    their franchise whoring is totally getting out of hand!
    first BF3, than ME3, than MoHW, than NFSMW, than DS3, and now this.
    when will it end!
