Kane & Lynch Get The Dope Bag, the new Downloadable Maps

Eidos Interactive, creators of some of the world's leading videogame properties, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of four new downloadable maps for the innovative Fragile Alliance multiplayer in Kane & Lynch: Dead Men will be FREE on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation Network.

Coming in April, all four of the new maps will be released in one downloadable pack entitled 'The Dope Bag'. Each of the four maps features its own unique scenario: take on the local dope dealers and the Russian mafia at an LA construction site in 'Clean Cut', clash with the Yakuza in Tokyo in 'Hooker's Trail', raid a drug baron's mansion in a Venezuelan jungle in 'Flying High' and ambush General Fuentes' military convoy in the streets of Havana to steal the gold hidden in his vehicles in 'Hasta La Vista'.

With Fragile Alliance we set out to offer gamers a new experience in co-op multiplayer, giving players the choice to work as a team or backstab their teammates and work for themselves at any moment, said Kim Krogh, Lead Game Designer, IO Interactive. The response to Fragile Alliance has been fantastic and these new maps will serve to grow the Fragile Alliance online community even further.

Fragile Alliance is based on greed, betrayal and revenge. Up to eight players team up against police or various enemies in a series of gripping heist scenarios – from here the choice is entirely up to the individual player. The objective is to steal the bounty and make it to a getaway point. The winner is the player who escapes with the most loot. How and when you make your move is up to you. So do you share the loot with your teammates or gun them down and keep it all for yourself?

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a dark and gritty tale of two men bound by circumstance as they wait on death row for their final sentence. One is a flawed mercenary, the other a medicated psychopath. The two are forced to embark on a violent and chaotic journey, hating each other every step of the way.

'The Dope Bag' is set for release on April 17th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and will be available FREE for download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace and the PlayStation Store.

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is available in stores now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC Games for Windows.
