It’s not a huge surprise to hear that EA is planning a new Army of Two game, but it’s always nice to know more about a video game you knew was coming sooner or later. So right now we have official word that Electronic Arts will release Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel sometime in March 2013 – and the first juicy details, as well as a video are available.

The game will introduce two new characters, Alpha and Bravo who find themselves in Mexico, in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit. Expect super intense gameplay and the classic 2 player co-op modes, either played online or in the split screen mode.

“We wanted to refresh the Army of Two franchise for a new generation of action gamers, and at the same time, stay true to the core concept that really made the first two games fan favourites,” said Julian Beak, executive producer, Visceral Games. “With meaningful, seamless co-op gameplay at its core and explosive new tag-team features, gamers will have to work together tactically and strategically as they push through a city dominated by one of Mexico’s deadliest drug cartels.”

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is expected to hit market in March 2013 and you can check out the first video of the game below, via Game Informer.
