Today, EA Games and Visceral Games have announced that hip-hop stars Big Boi and B.o.B will appear in Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. Additionally, the duo has collaborated on the game’s official theme song, “Double or Nothing.”
Both Big Boi and B.o.B will play T.W.O. operatives in the game, Chalres “Chuy” Rendall and Anthony “Baker” Barnes, respectively. If you rush out and pre-order Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel, you’ll lock yourself in for the “Hit-Makers Kit,” which gives you access to a special mission where you get to play as Big Boi and B.o.B.’s characters.
“I love action games, and getting a chance to star in one is definitely something I’m excited about,” said B.o.B. “Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel has everything I’m looking for in a great game – intensity and huge explosions and destruction.”
Big Boi added, “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.”
Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel launches in early 2013. A new trailer for the game was released as well, which you can watch below.
