Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel has No Competitive Multiplayer

Speaking with website VG24/7, Visceral Games confirmed that its upcoming game, Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel will not feature any competative multiplayer mode.

According to lead designer  Julien Lamoureux, “There is no competitive multiplayer. When we took a step back and looked at what we were trying to achieve, we just figured, ‘you know what? Let’s just put our resources into what we’re trying to do, which is a very intense co-op campaign experience. We didn’t want to stretch our resources between competitive multiplayer and co-op. Whenever you start a project you have a finite amount of resources, so it’s up to you what you want to put in place. For us it was just a logic choice, and we doubled down with the quality of the campaign, versus competitive.”

This comes as a surprise since both the original Army of Two and the sequel, Army of Two: The 40th Day had competative multiplayer. However, both of these games fell a little short of expectations, so perhaps concentrating on the much touted co-op is the right move. We’re just hoping the series keeps its sense of humor and verbal quips.

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is scheduled to release on March 26, 2013.

Marc Camron is pleased to finally get a little bit of time to enjoy new games this holiday season, even if Batman: Arkham Knight isn't one of them. The rest of the time will be spent getting ready for CES in Vegas, starting on January 5th. At least it should be warmer there than in Colorado.
