THIS SUMMER TAKE ON SHANGHAI’S CRIME LORDS IN KANE & LYNCH 2: DOG DAYS™

Street date announced for North America and Europe

COPENHAGEN (March 17, 2010) — IO Interactive, a part of Square Enix Europe, is pleased to confirm that Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days™ will release on August 24, 2010 in North America and August 27 throughout Europe and other PAL territories, on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.

A raw and brutal crime shooter, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days follows two disturbed criminals, Lynch – an impulsive and reckless self-medicated psychopath and Kane – a tactical but disillusioned and desperate ex-mercenary, through 48 hours of hell.

“We believe the unique visuals and relentless gameplay has created an intensity never delivered in a videogame before,” said Niels Jørgensen, general manager of IO Interactive. “In a genre where so many games look and feel the same, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will make people double-take. We think it’s going to make quite an impression.”

Introducing a new visual experience inspired by documentary filmmakers and the user-generated era. Players are pulled into the game world, with every move and shift of the camera capturing the mayhem, in an unscripted style.

Beyond the stylized look and violent story, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days delivers all-new multiplayer modes as the highly celebrated Fragile Alliance returns, along with new Undercover Cop, Cops & Robbers and Arcade modes, with each mode raising the stakes of greed, betrayal, and revenge.

IO Interactive is proud to share the first in-game footage of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days in a trailer titled ‘Welcome to Shanghai’, which gives players a peek in to the story and situations Kane and Lynch will be faced with. An extended version of the trailer can be found exclusively on the official Web site – www.KaneandLynch.com

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Games for Windows® and will be released under the EIDOS brand portfolio. All formats will release in-stores on August 24, 2010 in North America and August 27, 2010 in Europe and other PAL territories.

    If it’s as much fun as the last one, I’m already sold. It sounds like the same 2 guys are back voicing Kane and Lynch, right?
