Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel Plot

"Shortly after being recruited into T.W.O. (Trans World Operations), Alpha and Bravo join Salem and Rios in a rescue operation to save multiple hostages in a cartel compound. During the operation, only one hostage, a girl named Fiona, is found. Salem attempts to leave, believing that if he stays, he will die. Alpha, Bravo and Rios are successful in saving Fiona, but Salem presumably dies. Five years later, T.W.O. is hired by Mayor Cordova, a Mexican politician seeking to bring down the La Guadaņa and kill its leader, Estaban Bautista. The T.W.O. operatives, Alpha and Bravo believe nothing will go wrong, until the convoy's movement is interrupted by La Guadaņa and Alpha and Bravo survive with some other operatives, but Cordova escapes.

Alpha and Bravo push their way past the Cartel's forces to City Hall for extraction. At City Hall, a man named Mason arrives and drives them out of the city but is killed when the cartel ambush them on the road, forcing Alpha and Bravo to proceed to meet Mason's contact. Mason's contact is revealed to be Fiona, who aids the team in bringing down La Guadaņa. Fiona gives Alpha and Bravo intelligence that Cordova fled to a local church that is serving as a La Guadaņa compound.

Alpha and Bravo fight through a resort to encounter El Diablo, La Guadaņa's top Lieutenant, learning that El Diablo killed a large number of T.W.O. operatives and that El Diablo also captured Cordova. Alpha, Bravo and Fiona temporarily rescue Cordova while surviving T.W.O. operatives die trying to protect the mayor. However, during the extraction, Alpha, Bravo and Cordova are then captured and tortured by the cartels in a room. At this point, El Diablo reveals his true identity as Salem. Salem kills Cordova and leaves, then Alpha and Bravo escape the room. Alpha manages to radio T.W.O. of Salem's betrayal and request for extraction. Rios is among the T.W.O. operatives responding to Alpha's transmission and wants Salem captured alive, but Alpha and Bravo disagree. Fiona tells the team that Salem and Bautista are hiding at a hacienda. Alpha and Bravo lead a T.W.O. strike force with assistance from Mexican Special Forces to raid the hacienda. During the raid, Fiona pursues Bautista, but is captured and relocated to a quarry. Alpha and Bravo are extracted by Rios via helicopter to rescue Fiona.

Alpha and Bravo successfully regroup with Fiona, who successfully kills Bautista. However, Salem re-appears and kills Fiona. Salem implies to Rios why he betrayed T.W.O. then kills Fiona right in front of everybody. Rios charges at Salem, Salem shoots Rios in the abdomen and flips him down a story before escaping. Rios changed his mind about capturing Salem, he wants him dead. Alpha and Bravo corner and destroy an armored vehicle piloted by Salem, successfully capturing him alive. Rios, Alpha and Bravo are airlifted home, promising to oversee Fiona's burial and carry out an extended vacation. Meanwhile, Salem etches Alice Murray's name on his prison cell wall, which is revealed to cause his betrayal during the game.

In the post-credits epilogue, Salem is seen smiling when an armored guard and an unidentified visitor approach him."

Army Of Two: The Devil's Cartel Gameplay

"Where as the last two games focused around characters, Salem and Rios, Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will focus around two new T.W.O. operatives named Alpha and Bravo. It is speculated that the reasoning behind the unidentified names is to give the player the feeling that it is them fighting through the missions.

Returning from the first game is the Overkill mode, which makes both players invincible for a short period of time. However, features such as back to back, playing rock, paper and scissors with your partner, and other co-op interactions have been removed in favor of a more fast-paced gameplay. Competitive multiplayer from the second game will not be returning to focus on a richer co-op experience."
