EA today announced the newest game in the Army of Two franchise, The Devil's Cartel.
Says EA, "Players will find themselves on the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), a PMC outfit that drops them in the middle of a drug war conflict for an assignment full of corruption and deceit.

The title is being developed by Visceral Games, and features online and split-screen co-op. Here's a sneak peak, thanks to GameInformer:

"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."
