Skullcandy will include an Xbox 360 station featuring Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel in its upcoming Skullcandy Road Tour, which will travel around the country providing gamers with an opportunity to play the third installment in the Army of TWO franchise before it hits store shelves early next year.

“We firmly believe our new line of Skullcandy gaming headsets elevates the entire gaming experience, making every enemy that much easier to find, every objective that much smoother to achieve and every campaign that much more satisfying to complete,” said Nate Morley, VP Marketing and Creative, Skullcandy. “They are perfect for online games, especially a co-op game like Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel, where teamwork isn’t just a suggestion, but a requirement for success. We’re thrilled to be working with EA to support the next installment in that franchise.”
The Skullcandy SLYR is the first in an entirely new line of gaming headsets designed to deliver a unique combination of high quality audio performance, cutting-edge features and a stylish aesthetic for gamers worldwide. Available now in black, white or blue for $79.99, the wired Skullcandy SLYR gaming headset delivers precision stereo gaming audio with cross-compatibility with Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, WiiU and PC as well as most smartphones, tablets and MP3 players. Features include a stashable boom mic, the GMX in-line mixer with volume and game-to-voice balancing controls, and custom audio profiles for games, movies and music.
Each of Skullcandy’s new gaming headsets, which also include the upcoming Skullcandy PLYR1 and PLYR2, will provide players with distinct cross-platform options from which to choose – whether looking for a flexible console and mobile product, a wireless stereo solution, or full spatial audio delivered with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound.
Army of Two The Devil’s Cartel re-sets the series that pioneered the co-op experience, balancing the over-the-top blockbuster action the franchise is known for with a narrative tone that is more intense and mature. Players will find themselves on the deadly streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for a Private Military Contract outfit called Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.). The pair will come face-to-face with a violent, bloodthirsty drug lord and must fight to protect an unwavering political figure determined to take him down. With the ability to unleash Overkill and harness the power of ultimate destruction, players will work together as their objectives unravel, allegiances begin to blur and their lives hang in the balance.
