Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a cinematic crime drama that tells a raw and gritty tale of two anti-heroes, one a flawed mercenary, the other a medicated psychopath, set in an intense third-person action shooter. Forced to embark on a violent and chaotic journey, hating each other every step of the way, Kane & Lynch: Dead Men features a gripping storyline, relentless third-person action and an innovative twist on the online multiplayer gameplay experience.
"We're excited to ship Kane & Lynch: Dead Men earlier than expected and get a jump on the holiday season," said Robert Lindsey, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Eidos Inc. "Kane & Lynch will offer something entirely fresh and unique in terms of narrative depth and character, but also as a next-generation action title."
In the two-player Co-op mode, one player assumes the role of the ruthlessly efficient Kane, while the other controls the unpredictable and blackout-prone psychopath Lynch. The action continues online in the innovative and distinctly volatile Fragile Alliance multiplayer mode. Supporting up to eight players online, the multiplayer begins with all players on the same team fending off police and pulling off a high stakes heist. But the criminal coalition lasts only as long as it need to, as players can shatter the alliance at any moment by becoming a traitor and turning on their cohorts to try and make off with the cash.
