Friends Band Together and Get a Sneak Peek at the Highly Anticipated Action

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
When the stakes are high, risk it all by going double or nothing! Electronic
Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced that a downloadable demo for Army of TWO
The Devil`s Cartel, the next installment of the franchise celebrated for its
dynamic two player co-operative gameplay and over-the-top blockbuster action,
will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStationNetwork starting on
March 12. 

In the demo, players will step into the boots of private military contractors
Alpha and Bravo as they embark on a mission to rescue a kidnapped politician
while diffusing an additional hostage situation. From the bottom floor of a
dangerous drug lab, to the rooftops of a sky rise, Alpha and Bravo must
infiltrate the Cartel`s stronghold and overcome hordes of cartel members, all
the while working together to survive. With the lives of others on the line, the
dynamic duo will need to split up as one player runs into battle face-to-face
with their opposition, while the other takes to the sky in a helicopter to man a
mini gun and provide cover. Complete with epic explosions, massive destruction
and the brand new Overkill feature, gamers will be able to experience the
adrenaline and palm sweating action before the game launches on March 26. 

Army of TWO The Devil`s CartelOverkill Edition is still available to pre-order
at participating retailers. Gamers who reserve their copy of the game will
receive exclusive masks, outfits, a highly destructive co-op contract mission
and deadly weapons, including the TAH-9. If customers pre-order their copy from
GameStop, they will receive the Army of TWO The Devil`s Cartel Hit-Maker`s Kit,
which will give gamers the chance to play as characters portrayed by music
megastars Big Boi and B.o.B, along with an additional contract mission and
custom designed gear. 

In Army of TWO The Devil`s Cartel, players find themselves on the war-torn
streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical
Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), fighting for justice against a dangerous drug
cartel. Featuring both online and split-screen co-op, Army of TWO The Devil's
Cartel gives players the chance to distinguish themselves from their friends by
providing a deeper and more advanced upgrade and customization system. From the
mask that protects them in battle to the very weapons that keep them alive,
players can customize their own Alpha and Bravo to create the deadliest
mercenary team as they see fit.
