EA has announced that hip-hop icons Big Boi and B.O.B will be featured in the upcoming shooter, Army of TWO: The Devil’s Cartel. Not only will they be collaborating on the game’s theme song, Double or Nothing, but will also be the stars of the show, taking on the roles of T.W.O operatives Charles “Chuy” Rendall (Big Boi) and Anthony “Baker” Barnes (B.o.B), helping players decimate Mexico’s most notorious virtual cartel.

EA has also announced that those who pre-order the game through select retailers will receive the Hit Maker’s Kit.The DLC pack grants players to a unique T.W.O contract mission and exclusive skins, masks and other accessories all designed by the Hip-Hop legends 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,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer at Visceral Studios Montreal. “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.”

Said singer-songwriter and avid gamer B.o.B, “I love action games, and getting a chance to star in one is definitely something I’m excited about, Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel has everything I’m looking for in a great game – intensity and huge explosions and destruction.”

“Partnering with B.o.B on the Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel theme song and inside the game has been a blast and I can’t wait to load it up, hear the song and see myself in the game,” said Big Boi.

The game will be released on March 26, 2013 for the PS3 and XBox 360.
