Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is a third person shooter published by EA.
The first game came out in 2008 and got middling reception from critics. As the title suggests, the game has co-op and unique ways of utilizing team play to take down enemies.
The co-op mechanic in The Devil’s Cartel is a highly polished version of the one found in the previous games.
The game is made by Visceral Games, the developers of the Dead Space franchise. The game was released on in North America on March 26th 2013 and March 29th 2013 in Europe for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. [reference]
There are some new preorder incentives in place where gamers can receive the Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel Overkill Edition, which features new weapons and 3 “Overkillers” Contracts, besides some sweet Day of the Dead guns and masks. [reference]

Julian Beak, Executive Producer, Visceral Games revealed that they are going on a new direction with the game.
“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.”
The game has been confirmed to run on the Frostbite 2 engine, and it will be interesting to see how the developers pull this off since EA seems to be giving the game a big budget this time around.
Walls, barriers, and buildings bow to the explosive power of your weapons, powered by the bombastic Frostbite 2 engine that powers Battlefield 3. [reference]
The game is a third person shooter where co-op is one of the main characteristics of the game.
Not much can be discerned right now, except that the trademark explosions and action-packed gameplay have returned. The game looks as great as ever, with a level of destruction and detail unseen till now in the series. [reference]
Even the storyline appears terribly interesting, like a Bad Boys flick done right (somehow), with just the right amount of F-bombs.
As a member of one of the world’s most elite private military companies, you and your partner will be armed to unleash colossal amounts of destruction. As you lay waste to the enemy, you’ll build up Overkill, an ability that briefly makes you an invincible engine of absolute destruction. [reference]
Whether you’re performing flanking maneuvers, creating diversions to take the heat off, or even giving him one last shot of adrenaline when things get a little too chaotic.
Working together as a single engine of destruction is the key to laying waste to your surroundings and taking out enemies with overwhelming force.
The more effectively you work together, the more cash you make and the more destruction you’ll cause.
You work for an organisation called T.W.O and now you take on one of the most vicious cartel in the world called La Guadana, which is supposed to be a ruthless criminal organization based in mexico. [reference]
The cartel is sort of menacing like any other cartel and rules through fear, violence, and intimidation, killing without remorse and corrupting the government for their own sadistic ends.
You can your partner Alpha and Bravo need to go into Mexico and clean up all these people. It won’t be easy but you have an arsenal of advanced weapons at your disposal.
