Announcement of new Army of Two game

Have you heard? There is a new Army of Two game! Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel to be exact, coming out in 2013.

Have you heard? We won't be playing as Tyson Rios and Elliot Salem. Instead there will be 2 new characters named Alpha & Bravo. Usually I'm not in favour of changing the main characters that we all know and love. Fair enough, they aren't the most recognizable of faces out there but if you have played the last 2 games(especially the 2nd installment), you would be familiar with their fist-bumping and bro-hugs. However, I understand the need for a major overhaul. The new game is gonna be bigger and better according to the publishers.

So they decide to change the main guys?! I'm not really in favour of that and I would usually go ballistic. But it seems to be the "in" thing at the moment. Darksiders changed their protagonist. Assassins Creed did the same and so did Prototype. GTA have always been doing it and more games are following suit. And it has worked! If the new characters are likeable enough, then no one will be complaining. So no complains from me this time. I'll be mature about it and see what the developers throw at us. (Wow, I'm impressed with myself!)

Tyson and Salem, we will miss you!

Or will we? There has been rumours that the new game will feature 4 player co-op. So let's see. Tyson & Salem to accompany Alpha and Bravo? Seems possible to me.. Remember where you heard it first!
