Pre-order to get the Overkill Edition
The new Army of Two title which is called The Devil’s Cartel has gotten a firm release date. The Visceral Games developed title for EA will hit the streets on March 26th in North America and March 29th in Europe.
Devil’s Cartel is being developed using the Frostbite 2 engine from DICE and will be set against the backdrop of Mexico where heroes Alpha and Beta will take on a violent drug kingpin. The game is being taken in an all new direction by the team at Visceral Games which should provide for an experience that is far different that past Army of Two titles.
For those that Pre-Order, Visceral has unveiled what the developer is calling “The Overkill Edition” which is really just a fancy way of describing the Limited Edition version of the game as has been EA’s practice with the first release of copies of the game.
The Overkill Edition will include early access to three overkiller contracts, tactical Co-Op gear, and a day of the dead themed assault rifle and outfit to celebrate the holiday.
From what we have seen so far, Devil’s Cartel looks to be breathing life into the franchise with its new direction. We will have to see if the finish product lives up to what we have seen so far.
