I know that the original Kane & Lynch
accumulated a bad reputation for lacking in gameplay content. Although the witty and gritty nature of the characters, dialogue and plot seemed to hold their own, complaints arose of empty game content. Criticism aside, I have been intrigued by the sequel since the first released teaser clips
of surveillance cameras spying on the two protagonists. Something as hilariously violent as these two could not be so bad, could it?
Today, we have a slew of new information to present you with, all of which are accompanied by respective videos. First up is a video vignette showing off the cooperative play in Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days
. The video shows explosions, as much gunfire as there are curse words, and Lynch’s psychotic fighting style.
Following, a behind the scenes video shows off the very unique multiplayer modes. This looks to be one of the rare shooting games that involves a bit more tact than the average multiplayer mode. In fact, they specifically call out Capture the Flag
and instead replace it with interesting gameplay such as Cops and Robbers
Finally, pre-order information has been released with exclusive content/swag from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Walmart. Amongst them, you have the options of the Greed Betrayal and Revenge Multiplayer Pack
(GameStop), the Alliance Assault Multiplayer Pack
that contains eight Chinese costume masks (Best Buy), a Comic Preview Pack
(Amazon), and a Fragile Alliance Strategy Pack
(Walmart). To learn more, we have individual videos for each promotion posted.
Be prepared for a barrage of more assets below. If that’s not enough, read on for more information.
