Kane and Lynch blast on to mobiles

For immediate release

IO’s two anti-heroes bring their explosive mix of action and betrayal to a game created specifically for mobile handsets

Eidos Interactive, one of the world’s leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, will bring its eagerly-awaited next generation action title Kane and Lynch: Dead Men to mobile phones this November, in a specially-created version developed for mobile by Danish Developer, Kiloo, with input from Io Interactive, the original development studio for the game.

Timed to coincide with the PLAYSTATION®3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, Kane and Lynch mobile will be released through the publisher’s fast-growing Eidos New Media division.

Kane&Lynch: Dead Men is a cinematic crime drama that tells a raw and gritty tale of two anti-heroes– one a flawed mercenary, the other a medicated psychopath: Forced to embark on a violent and chaotic journey and hating each other every step of the way, Kane&Lynch: Dead Men features a gripping storyline and relentless third-person action.

Spanning 38 action-packed levels across five very different scenarios, Kane and Lynch mobile takes the form of a fast paced action game. Armed with a wealth of firearms, explosives, deadly booby traps and gadgets, the pair must blast a path through each heavily-guarded location, using simple yet effective menu systems to switch between shotguns and assault rifles with ease.

With its mixture of platform elements and exploration– coupled with a seemingly endless army of enemies and interactive backdrops– Kane and Lynch mobile is a testing game where the stakes are high and the action is unrelenting…
