Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel, the upcoming shooter from Visceral Games and EA, has just received an R18+ rating in Australia, becoming the third title to receive such a classification in the country’s history.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel promises to once again emphasize cooperative action while using the new Frostbite 2 engine to deliver a graphically-intense experience.

We already saw it in action through several videos recently and now the Australian Classification Board has just revealed that the game has received one of its new R18+ ratings, due to "high impact violence."

The game is the third one to receive such a rating, after Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus and Ubisoft's Spartacus Legends.

Previously, ultra-violent titles didn't even receive a rating, which meant that they couldn't be sold on the country's territory unless they received drastic cuts to their content.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel is out on March 25, in North America, and March 28, in the rest of the world, for PS3 and Xbox 360.
