Electric Arts has just announced that the Army of Two franchise will be getting another installment named, The Devil’s Cartel, which is the third game in the franchise, there are a few new features included the first is that there’s a new developer in town, EA Montreal is out and Visceral Games is in.
Alongside this the game will be powered by DICE’s Frostbite 2.0 engine which is the same used in Battlefield 3.
Obviously there’s a lack of details at the moment, but by the sounds of it there is a new change from the previous games, whilst the focus on co-op play will remain, but it won’t focus on the previous characters, Rios and Salem and instead The Devil’s Cartel is centered around Alpha and Bravo, two operatives who are dropped into the middle of a drug war in Mexico.
EA has said that The Devil’s Cartel “re-sets the series that pioneered the co-op experience with a more intense, mature and grittier tone.” Which sounds like we might see a bit modern-day shooter action in the game, which is not necessarily a good thing.
Check Game Informer’s coverage video for the new game below, it will explain a bit more about The Devil’s Cartel.
The Devil’s Cartel will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2013, with more details expected to be revealed at EA’s Summer Showcase later today.
