IO Interactive, a part of Square Enix Europe, confirmed 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, PlayStation 3 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.
