Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a violent and chaotic journey of two men -- a flawed mercenary and a medicated psychopath -- and their brutal attitude towards right and wrong. This volatile partnership combined with innovative technologies allow for an unparalleled gaming experience.
"Using state-of-the-art technology, Kane and Lynch: Dead Men delivers a raw and compelling story-driven gaming experience not previously possible on current generation hardware," said David Bamberger, US Marketing Manager, Eidos, Inc. "The power of the Xbox 360 and Windows allows us to dive deeper into a world of disturbing realism."
IO Interactive was established in 1998 and released Hitman: Codename 47 in November 2000. Immensely well received by reviewers and gamers alike, the game re-invented the 3D action game genre with its depth of story and intense gameplay. Since then, IO has developed three sequels to the first Hitman franchise on both current and next-generation consoles as well as for PC, and the developer is responsible for the critically acclaimed game Freedom Fighters.
IO Interactive's latest game in the Hitman series - the chart-topping and award-winning Hitman: Blood Money has been a huge international retail success. This amazing and genre-establishing franchise has established IO as a leader in the video game industry.
