'Relentless Action': Latest Kane & Lynch 2 screens

New screen shots for IO Interactive's gritty crime action game

  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days continues the gritty adventures of Adam 'Kane' Marcus and James Seth Lynch; two hardened criminals looking to make one final big score.

    The sequel is told from the perspective of the psychopathic Lynch (the previous game put you in the boots of his associate Kane) and picks up with him living a peaceful life in Shanghai. An opportunity to earn untold wealth sees Lynch back to his old tricks, with ruthless thugs, crime lords and local law enforcement standing in his way.

    In the words of IO Interactive; “adrenaline junkies are about to get a fix like they’ve never experienced before.” Check out the latest screen shots in this 'Relentless Action' gallery.
  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days takes place over a blood-soaked 24 hours. It is being touted as a "raw and brutal crime shooter", with the titular duo fighting to a stay one step ahead of their enemies.
  • Last month, IO Interactive released an exclusive multiplayer demo of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days on Xbox Live. To date, over 27 billion 'dollars' have been stolen through successful in-game heists. (That’s approximately 161 million dollars laundered every hour.)

    More than 116,000 players have been killed while trying to pull off a heist -- most of them by their own gang members.

  • “We believe the unique visuals and relentless gameplay has created an intensity never delivered in a videogame before,” said Niels Jorgensen, general manager of IO Interactive (somewhat bombastically).

  • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days uses a stylised camera system reminiscent of guerrilla filmmaking. Image artefacts, shaky handheld footage and blood spattering on the screen all lend the game a sense of realism and immediacy.
