I wasn't too thrilled
with the single player in Kane and Lynch 2
, but I thought the multiplayer had some great ideas. One of the main issues with the multiplayer in Dog Days was the small map selection, but now IO Interactive is remedying that with some DLC. The Doggie Bag Pack gives you three new maps--Dockyard, High Rise and the previously preorder-only Radio Tower--as well as five new weapons. You can also pick up the Alliance Weapons Pack for even more guns, and the Multiplayer Mask Pack to keep your identity secret in the betrayal-heavy online heists.
I don't think anything short of a rewrite could patch up the story mode, but these three DLC packs go a long way to fleshing out the multiplayer--it needed new maps and more guns to let the innovative game modes really breath, and that's just what you're getting here. Check the press release for pricing for each console.
The Kane & Lynch 2 multiplayer experience is about to get a whole lot richer. Three download packs are set to release today and will provide new maps and content playable in all three of the critically acclaimed Multiplayer modes as well as the single player Arcade mode. Increase your wealth and unlock new Achievement points with three new maps, powerful new weapons and stolen masks to conceal your identity.
The three DLC packs are…
Doggie Bag Pack
Take on new heists and unlock new Achievement points with two never before seen maps and five exclusive weapons for Multiplayer and Arcade modes.
