E4G: Steam has announced that Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be shipping with steamworks.
Sweet, more games are getting Steamworks, gotta love it!
Great for PC users.
Yep, especially with all the features that Steamworks has.
hell yea.. 45usd on steam. such prices are PC only ;-) sucks to pay 60usd per game.
I wonder if the PS3 version will get it too since Portal 2 is getting Steamworks on the PS3 version. Edit: @ ilmouzer Why would Sony be pissed if its version got Steamworks? Edit: @ krisq Oh, ok man. I didn't understand the difference.
doubt it, sony will be pissed most probably if such a thing happened plus I think that steamworks will just be available for valve games for a while, on consoles of course forget what I said... :)
...but SteamCloud, which means updates without certification process through Sony.
Downloading the demo for this game now, can't wait to see how well the game is.
The demo is quite fun actually :D
Sweet sounds good.
The demo redeemed the awful first game in more than one way. I'm actually considering buying it.
Nice to see developers are finally dumping GFWL and going for steamworks
I thought the demo was terrible.
I don't like that it's tied to Steam. That means I can't sell it on ebay if I don't like it...
Can someone fill me in on what Steamworks is? Never heard of it before.
It means all copies of the game, no matter where they are purchased have to be run through Steam, it's a DRM system, but sometimes offers users cloud features for save games. Whats nice about Steamworks is you can find a great deal on a game in retail and just pop the CD-key into Steam and dload the game.
Sounds okay, imo. Thanks for the info, man!
