Today Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts studio, has announced that the The Devil’s Cartel, the next installment in the Army of TWO franchise, will launch in Europe on March 29th 2013 and in North America on March 26, on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Powered by the Frostbite 2 engine from DICE, Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel takes place in the same universe as the previous games, but now you will fill the shoes of  two new TWO (Tactical Worldwide Operations)operatives–Alpha and Bravo, during a drug war in Mexico.

“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.”

 Apart from the game’s standard edition Visceral Games will also offer an exclusive Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel Overkill Edition, which will includes a bonus Contract that adds three additional missions to the game.
