Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel Release Date and Preorder Bonuses Revealed
Grab a friend and fight together or die alone this March as Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel releases on the 26th! The reboot is being done by Visceral Games who know a thing or two about making a decent game. Set in Mexico players will fill the shoes of either Bravo or Alpha who work for the Private Military Contract outfit called Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.) created at the end of the first game. Tasked with taking down the deadliest cartel in the world on their own turf Alpha and Bravo will have more than their fair share of work to do. The game is being powered by the new Frostbite 2 engine and promises destruction, lots of it! Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games had this to say about the reboot of the franchise and how they plan to keep the co op gameplay its so well known for intact.
“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, customization 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.”
EA and Visceral have also announced the Overkill Edition of the game and anyone who pre orders it will be given these awesome bonuses to help them get a head start on taking down the cartel. There is no other info just yet on what the Overkill Edition of the game actually is but knowing EA its just a fancy name for the regular edition of the game when it first launches. They tend to add fancy titles to their games for everyone who buys them new at launch.
