Tell a friend: Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel co-op demo March 12


You and a friend can step into the shoes of Alpha and Bravo next week, in advance of the March 26 release of Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. EA will release a downloadable demo on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network "starting March 12" (which means you should expect the XBL demo on March 13).

In the demo, two players will "embark on a mission to rescue a kidnapped politician while diffusing an additional hostage situation." We're assuming the two masked gunmen handle the situation with their advanced psychological training and diplomacy.

Oh, and because we can't have a post about Army of Two without using it: "bros."

EA DEPLOYS AN EXPLOSIVE DOWNLOADABLE CO-OP DEMO FOR ARMY OF TWO THE DEVIL'S CARTEL COMING MARCH 12

Friends Band Together and Get a Sneak Peek at the Highly Anticipated Action Blockbuster Game Before it Launches March 26

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 6, 2013 – When the stakes are high, risk it all by going double or nothing! Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that a downloadable demo for Army of TWO™ The Devil's Cartel, the next installment of the franchise celebrated for its dynamic two player co-operative gameplay and over-the-top blockbuster action, will be available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace and PlayStation®Network starting on March 12.

In the demo, players will step into the boots of private military contractors Alpha and Bravo as they embark on a mission to rescue a kidnapped politician while diffusing an additional hostage situation. From the bottom floor of a dangerous drug lab, to the rooftops of a sky rise, Alpha and Bravo must infiltrate the Cartel's stronghold and overcome hordes of cartel members, all the while working together to survive. With the lives of others on the line, the dynamic duo will need to split up as one player runs into battle face-to-face with their opposition, while the other takes to the sky in a helicopter to man a mini gun and provide cover. Complete with epic explosions, massive destruction and the brand new Overkill feature, gamers will be able to experience the adrenaline and palm sweating action before the game launches on March 26.

Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel Overkill Edition is still available to pre-order at participating retailers. Gamers who reserve their copy of the game will receive exclusive masks, outfits, a highly destructive co-op contract mission and deadly weapons, including the TAH-9. If customers pre-order their copy from GameStop, they will receive the Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel Hit-Maker's Kit, which will give gamers the chance to play as characters portrayed by music megastars Big Boi and B.o.B, along with an additional contract mission and custom designed gear.

In Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel, players find themselves on the war-torn streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), fighting for justice against a dangerous drug cartel. Featuring both online and split-screen co-op, Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel gives players the chance to distinguish themselves from their friends by providing a deeper and more advanced upgrade and customization system. From the mask that protects them in battle to the very weapons that keep them alive, players can customize their own Alpha and Bravo to create the deadliest mercenary team as they see fit.

Launching on March 26, Army of TWO The Devil's Cartel will be available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system. This product is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
