Xbox 360

You may have read about it in some magazine, but Eidos today officially announced Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for Xbox 360 and PC. IO Interactive, the Hitman series developers, are doing the game and will be finished with it next year. See the first images inside.


Eidos themselves writes: Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a dark and gritty tale of two men bound by circumstance as they wait on death row for their final sentence. One is a flawed mercenary, the other a medicated psychopath. The two are forced to embark on a violent and chaotic journey, hating each other every step of the way.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a story-driven, fully co-operative third-person action shooter title, with intuitive crew mechanics, heavily populated destructible real-world scenarios, a volatile partnership and brutal attitude.

I see developers finally realize co-op is the key. The more co-op the better.

I don't agree with the "the more co-op the better" statement. Co-op may doesn't work well on every game. But this one should be fun.

I don't want to start any kind of war, but it is not coming to PS3? IO have always been doing their game for every platform possible (maybe with exception of GC).

I hope the guy who relies on drugs to be stable has some sort of medication meter, where you have to find medicine to keep him normal and the less he has in his system the harder he becomes to control, the more unruly, the more depraved and insane. I think that would add a very interesting layer ontop of the game, having to keep your partner sane because he has some neccessary use but make him a liability and danger all the same.

In Co-Op, maybe the player flat out loses control, or... Nah, can't think of a good way for that too work.

This will probably be announced later as a port to PS3, being that it's IO producing the game. Not that I'll be buying a PS3 anytime soon...

If the game is made for co-op then why wouldn't it work? If more game developers design games with it in mind it's better for all of us. Coop can make even average games better. PDZ comes to mind. Heck doom 3 wasn't designed for coop but it damn sure made it better on the xbox.

There's an easy answer to that question. The game will not be developed with the last generation platforms in mind. It's time that the developers move on and get serious about next gen gaming.

game sounds interesting... but they're saying this game is like none before graphically and gameplay wise... as for gameplay wise i dont know yet... but the graphics to me aren't earth shattering... i mean the hairs still flat and blocked and the wall textures look flat.

Who says they are dead? They could be fatally wounded and hallucinating!
