Reboot to be called The Devil’s Cartel
A new Army of Two reboot is headed to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2013. The new title that is in development at Visceral Games will be called “Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel.” The game will be a total reboot of the franchise, taking it in a new direction, and it will be powered by the DICE-developed Frostbite 2 engine.
The game is said to feature a far grittier tone that is more mature. It will be an intense title that will feature new characters Alpha and Bravo, who will find themselves on the streets of Mexico in the middle of a drug war. The game will offer two-player split screen co-op game play that will be available over Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, as well.
Despite rumors of a four player co-op mode that was considered for an Army of Four, sources tell us that it is not part of the title. The focus will be on two player co-op, which is what it should be. The news from EA confirms multiple rumors that the studio has been working on a new Army of Two title for quite some time in between being focused on the Dead Space franchise.
