"Kane & Lynch: Dead Men" is a cinematic crime drama that tells a raw and gritty tale of two anti-heroes -- one a flawed mercenary, the other a medicated psychopath -- set in an intense third-person action shooter. Forced to embark on a violent and chaotic journey, hating each other every step of the way, "Kane & Lynch: Dead Men" features a gripping storyline, relentless third-person action and an innovative twist on the online multiplayer gameplay experience.
"'Kane & Lynch: Dead Men' achieves a level of narrative complexity and cinematic realism rarely seen in the videogame industry," said Robert Lindsey, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Eidos Inc. "From the first frame onwards, players will know they entered a fully realized world filled with all the drama and intense action usually reserved for Hollywood spectacles."
Kane is able to use the world around him to his advantage, creating mayhem in every highly destructible environment; blowing up cars and fuel tanks to efficiently take down pursuers. Creating panic by opening fire in a packed Toyko nightclub, just to use the ensuing chaos to cover his escape and using cover to avoid enemy fire while taking precise aim to shoot down single or multiple enemies.
Providing additional backup, Kane has the option to control a crew of criminal mercenaries to scout new and potentially dangerous locations or take out specific enemies. The optional crew-based combat system allows for added tactical strategy when in heavy gunfight situations enabling Kane to direct a crew member to cover fire at a specific target while sending another crew member to protect his flank position.
