IO Interactive is trying to do something different with the online multiplayer mode in Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. It's titled Fragile Alliance and it's all about greed, betrayal and revenge. You have to work with other players at the start of each round to take out police, but by the end it's every man for himself.
However, Kane & Lynch's co-op mode is much more traditional. So traditional, in fact, there's only an offline splitscreen option. Eurogamer sat down with game director Jens Peter Kurup to find out why there's no online co-op and learn more about Fragile Alliance.
