A few months ago, VIBE got some hands-on time with EA's latest installment of the "Army of TWO" franchise. After the break, see how Big Boi & B.o.B fit into the highly anticipated co-op actioner.
Today, Electronic Arts announced that the Grammy Family duo of Big Boi and B.o.B. are bringing their respective skills to "Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel". The two stars are not only teaming up in the studio for the collaboration of the game's official theme song "Double or Nothing," but the dynamic ATLien duo are also joining forces in the game. The pair will play the roles of T.W.O. operatives Charles "Chuy" Rendall (played by Big Boi) and Anthony "Baker" Barnes (B.o.B), assisting gamers to blast their way through Mexico's most fiercest cartel.
For those who plan on pre-ordering "Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel" from GameStop, you will also receive an exclusive Hit-Makers Kit. This helpful item will give players access to a one-of-a-king T.W.O. Contract mission that will allow them to play as Big Boi and B.o.B's characters, as well as custom masks and weapon skins designed by the artists themselves.
"One of our primary goals with 'Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel' is to bring the feeling of watching an action blockbuster movie to the game and adding that great theme song really helps set the right vibe, almost like you're in the theater," Julian Beak, Executive Producer at Visceral Studios Montreal said in a released statement. "And aside from a great song, Big Boi and B.o.B also delivered outstanding performances that are really going to add to the story."
But you don't have to wait until January to take their word for it, you can see for yourself by pressing play on the trailer clip below:
"Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel" will be available on March 26, 2013 for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.
