Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. studio, announced today Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel ships in North America for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 26, 2013. Additionally, Visceral Games is rewarding fans who pre-order the game with the exclusive Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel Overkill Edition.

“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,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games. “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.”

Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel puts our boys south of the border, where they will have a super mega drug lord waging a war on them in the streets of Mexico. Their mission is to protect a political figure who is trying to bring down the Cartel. Good luck with that… Having the Overkill Edition will certainly make things easier since it comes with additional guns (always nice) and outfits.

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.

This product has not yet been rated by ESRB, but given the content and track record of the franchise, a Mature rating shouldn’t surprise us.

So are you excited to take on the Cartel? Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.

      The trailer looks super cool. I've actually never played those games. Maybe I'll get on that.

    • Going to Hell

      That's an intense trailer. So many war games though. I think someone's going to need to push the genre by shocking us. Thinking nuns v. Priest death matches.
