The latest sequel in the franchise EA just won’t let die, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, now has a firm release date of March 26th, 2013 in North America and March 29th, 2013 in Europe.

Anyone who wants to pre-order the co-op heavy title will be met with a special Overkill Edition, which includes the following:

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.

Tactical Co-op Gear: Lay down sustained cover fire with the TAH-9 side arm while decked out in the polymer textured outfit and mask or wield the Double D automatic shotgun while battling in the intimidating Overkill mask and outfit.

Celebrate the Day of the Dead: Bust out the Day of the Dead themed assault rifle and take on Mexico’s most ruthless drug lords in Day of the Dead themed outfit and masks designed by popular tattoo artists.

If you still need some convincing, Julian Beak, Executive Producer over at Visceral Games, had this to say about the forthcoming game:

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. We knew coming out of the gate that meaningful co-op gameplay, customization 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.

Will you be pre-ordering Army of Two or will you holding off in the wake of Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s disappointment? Let us know in the comments below.
