Like your co-op shooters big and brawny? Well, you're in for a treat as a third entry to the Army of Two franchise: The Devil's Cartel has been announced.
Publisher EA has today announced a third entry in their well-received Army of Two series, entitled The Devil's Cartel. Picking up where the last game left off, it's slated for a March 2013 release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and will feature both online and split-screen co-op.
This time around, protagonists Alpha and Bravo will be lugging their machine guns to Mexico in an attempt to resolve a drug war that has spiralled out of control. At the helm this time are Visceral Games, the team behind Dead Space and Dante's Inferno.
Visceral Executive Producer Julian Bleak is eager to put his studio's stamp on proceedings: "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."
There is no word yet whether the game will be ported over to Wii U, but it is looking unlikely at this stage.
