It’s Army of Two, but not quite as you know it. EA is taking a slightly different tack with the third-person shooter series, best known for its butt-slapping and crazy quips. This time, with the Devil’s Cartel, things are going to be a little more serious. But not too serious.

The game still includes some absolutely outrageous set-pieces and explosive stunts. That much is certain. And a new feature called Overkill allows buddies to work together in building up a meter which, when unleashed, gives them the power to utterly obliterate anything in their path.

But even though there are new characters, new settings and new bad guys to take out, the game retains that same two-player co-op gameplay that you’ve come to love from the Army of Two series. As Alpha and Bravo, you’re tasked with tackling an explosive gang war in Mexico - getting caught in the middle of a drugs race in the process.

Devil’s Cartel brings split-screen and online co-op to the mix, with the added ability for players to completely customise their operative’s outfit and weaponry. Tweak your artillery as you like it, pick a mask that suits your attitude and be the baddest T.W.O. operative out there.
