Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days[edit | edit source]
Release date(s) :
Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is an upcoming video game developed by IO Interactive, published by Eidos Interactive under Square Enix and will be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows in August 2010. It is the sequel to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. On July 14, 2010, it was announced by IO Interactive that Kane & Lynch 2 would be releasing a week earlier than scheduled.
Announced in November 2009, the game is described as having a new visual style inspired by documentary films and user-generated content. According to the press release, "every aspect of the game has been designed to deliver a fresh perspective to the words 'intensity' and 'realism'." A pair of teaser videos accompanying the announcement present game footage in a distorted surveillance camera perspective. Dog Days will be presented from Lynch's point of view, rather than Kane's like in the first game.
A playable singleplayer and multiplayer demo was released on the Playstation Network on July 21 2010 and on the Xbox Live Marketplace on July 26 2010. A demo has also been released on Steam on July 27 2010
Plot[edit | edit source]
The game switches the lead in the series, putting players in control of "self-medicated psychopath" Lynch. The story begins with Lynch having found peace in Shanghai and attempting to "make a fat deal where the pay is beyond his wildest dreams and nothing is going to get in his way."
