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.

Fakking finally! Imma gonna download at once. Now I can start playing this online again. Got kind of boring when you've played the same four stages for about a 100 times.

Like i played this game for hours (and liked it) so don't get me wrong, but i think it's a good move to make it free after so many crappy updates and resetting the leaderboards (twice?).

PS:Lets hope more free DLC will follow for other games.

... Free? Really? Wow. Either Eidos Interactive is a really kickass company, or they just haven't learned how to gouge their customers yet.

@Death: it may have it faults, but at least it's creative and original IMO.

Hopefully will lead to more downloadable maps being free on other games.

Hopefully a fix has been implemented for the dodgy targeting

Jack, I don't know how you can call this game awful when its got an identical battle system to Rainbow Six: Vegas.

I've really got to buy the 360 version of this game. I have it on PC, but nobody plays the PC version online.

whoever said kane and lynch had the same battle system to rainbow six vegas, you're an idiot - dont compare vegas to k&l because they are nothing alike - so you can take cover and peek round corners. woop. you can do that in quite alot of fps games these days. the difference is, rainbow six does it best.
