Video games and music artists are no strangers to each other. Following that trend, hip hop artistes Big Boi & B.o.B. are joining in as characters in Visceral Games‘ Army of TWO: The Devil’s Cartel.
In the game, both artistes play T.W.O. (Tactical Worldwide Operatives) operatives, Charles “Chuy” Rendall and Anthony “Baker” Barnes, respectively. People who pre-order the game from Gamestop will receive an exclusive Hit-Makers Kit. The kit allows players to access to a mission where players get to play as both of these characters respectively. They will also be able to customise their masks and skins that the artistes designed themselves personally.
There will also be songs in the game that is from both artistes’ albums and also some new ones in which they have collaborated together. This is what they had to say:
“I love action games, and getting a chance to star in one is definitely something I’m excited about,” said B.o.B. in a press release.
“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.” added by Big Boi
The game allows you to play as Alpha and Bravo, the two main characters in the current title. It will be launched on March 26th 2013 and will be available only on PS3 and Xbox 360 for now. Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel is the third game in the series developed by Visceral Games instead by the previous developers, EA Montreal.
