Kane & Lynch spotted

Friday 28 July 2006
Forget Ratchet and Clank or Jak and Daxter, there's a new double act on its way thanks to Hitman developer IO Interactive, who is bringing Kane & Lynch: Dead Men to Xbox 360 and PC next year.

The game is a story driven, gritty shooter which pairs a flawed mercenary with a medicated psychopath who come into possession of a small fortune and seemingly have to fight tooth and nail to keep it.

IO Interactive is combining the slick graphical style that can be seen in Hitman with the squad based gameplay that it used in another of its games, Freedom Fighters. The game will be presented from a third-person perspective and takes place in heavily populated, destructible real-world settings.

While Eidos has only released a couple of shots and few details, word is that Kane & Lynch: Dead Men looks stunning and just what you'd expect from a next-gen game. Consequently we'll be following the game's progress closely.
