Deets emerging on Kane & Lynch 2

While it won’t be released until next year, details are beginning to surface for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days. The first item concerns the game’s protagonist: this time around, we’ll be filling the shoes of the more sadistic member of the duo, Lynch, as the plot details how the two killers get tangled in shadowy black market dealings in Shanghai, China. Developers are saying that the industrial city settings will promise an excellent venue for close quarters combat.

Moreover, online cooperative play will be featured in the game, something which was noticeably absent from the original. Competitive multiplayer will also be back with a host of new additions and improvements. The only thing I don’t understand is why they’re calling the sequel “Dog Days.” Something like “Kaner & Lyncher” sounds much better to me.
