Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will be released in the UK on March 29, 2013, EA and Visceral Games have announced.

The Frostbite 2 powered action title is set on the deadly streets of Mexico, where two private military operatives - Alpha and Bravo - must fight to take down a violent drug lord.

"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, customisation 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."

Visceral has also announced details of the Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel Overkill Edition, available to consumers who pre-order the game.

Early Access to Three Overkillers Contracts: Unleash massive destruction with three Contract variations designed for maximum rampage! Players must kill enemies and cause environment destruction to earn enough points to continuously stay in Overkill while making their way to the extraction point.
