Ahead of today's EA software showcase, the publisher has gone ahead and announced a new Army of Two for PS3 and Xbox 360. Called The Devil's Cartel, this new game is the next project from Visceral Games, developed in DICE's Frostbite 2 engine.
According to EA, this latest game "re-sets the series" with a "more intense, mature, and grittier tone," to the surprise of those of us who found the previous games plenty gritty. Operatives "Alpha" and "Bravo" fight in a drug war in Mexico, making use of "the ability to unleash the power of ultimate destruction."
The Devil's Cartel will be released in March 2013. If you want to follow along with other EA announcements today, you can watch the showcase live here starting at 1pm Pacific/4pm Eastern.
Update: Game Informer brings us the first official look at the game, with this new trailer/interview video and the cover image for its September issue. The mag specifies that this is the work of Visceral Games Montreal.
