Edit: Just saw the other thread. (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=111171). Close this.

Lock your doors and board up your windows. The Kane & Lynch whirlwind is heading our way earlier than we originally thought. The game is finished, and IO Interactive's third-person shooter is moving up a week, putting it on North American shelves on August 17 and European stores on August 20.

Sounds like the game will also have some kind of pre-order bonus that'll get those of you who are already on-board an extra map and a set of masks that can be worn in multiplayer. Considering one of the issues with the first game's multiplayer was a lack of variety, it seems a little weird to hold maps back like that.

Got my pre-order in a week ago. Would like more details on the bonus for all pre-orders.
