Kane & Lynch 2 – want to know anything?

dog days

I’m off to see IO’s Kane & Lynch 2 in London today. There’s an NDA on it until January 15, but I’m going to get to speak to “key personnel from the development team,” apparently.

So. Any questions?

    Which ending from the original game will it be using as a basis for the sequel?

    The obvious question would be: “Why isn’t the next Hitman out yet, you bastards?”

    Failing that, perhaps ask how they’re looking to differentiate their third-person cover combat from the myriad other titles out there.

    Will they be sending copies to Jeff gerstman? Ask them that :) Nah seriously ask them is this game more in lines with Freedom Fighters please as in a spirtual sequel.

    What will be the “fire the reviewer or we’re done” scoring cut-off point this time? :-D

    Edit: Damn you, Hindle – that was my gag! :-D

    How come K&L gets a sequel when the far superior Freedom Fighters still hasn’t?

    Bwahaha Blerk

    Scratchy simple thing is Freedom Fighters did not sell at all

    Can you give our Gav a cuddle? He’s on his way and he got lost.

    That’s not a question for IO, obviously.

    How will the cover system be improved?
    Will we have to command troops again? (I kinda didn’t like that bit)
    Will it be more crime caper focused that the original?
    What games have influenced you between K&L1 and K&L2?

    How have they improved the graphics?

    Oh, you should ask them whether becoming a part of Square-Enix has had any impact on IO’s day-to-day.

    How much focus has gone on the multiplayer this time round, game modes and will there be co-op?

    -The first game didnt do to well in review and sales, think this will affect peoples views on Kane & Lynch 2?

    -Was a sequel to the game always planned from the start (when the first game was in dev)?

    -Is Kane & Lynch going to be a long running series?

    Ask them if they will still buy gamespot.com for a good review.

    Ask them if they’re tired of people making snide comments about Gerstmann-gate, a debacle than had nothing to do with the people actually making the game.

    -Have any tweaks been made to the Fragile Alliance multiplayer mode to help minimize the intense bad-blood and name calling that results from a mode where “team killing” is actually a viable strategy? I suggest having at least the option of games that mute all discussion and make gamertags anonymous.

    -The addition of online co-op is awesome (and really a no-brainer) but is it true there will be no local co-op? Say it isn’t true!

    -Does the team plan on downloadable content (levels, playable characters, achievements/trophies, etc) for the single player/co-op mode post launch?

    All done. I asked everything up to post 17, I think. They answered everything. Many thanks for the questions.

    Did you call them “bastards” when asking Aimless’ question?

    #22 5 years ago
  23. Patrick Garratt

    I asked the question, but left the “bastards” out. I’ve failed, I know.

    If there was some way for me to pre-order VG247 I would be cancelling said commitment right about now.

    So is there split-screen co-op? Go on, give us a hint.

    Go on Pat at least answer this does it look good?

    I seriously hope Hunam’s question about the cover system is asked.

    Ask them the meaning of life, then ask them if they wear boxers or briefs.
