Kane and Lynch Leaderboard Reset October 1st

Kane and Lynch Leaderboard Reset October 1st

True Elite and Celebrity will now be much easier

Written by Dog of Thunder on 29 August 13 at 12:55

You may have missed out on a pair of specific forum threads the past few weeks, but the TrueAchievement community has been very active when it comes to Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. kliqIMB started the most recent thread asking for a leaderboard reset, and amazingly, Eidos responded on the official Kane and Lynch: Dead Men forum with the following message:

Hello Kane and Lynch fans!

We've heard your calls for a leaderboard reset and we've put one in place.

So, here's the info you need:

As of October 1st, 2013 at 1AM PDT / 9AM CET the leaderboards for both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Kane & Lynch will be reset.

This should allow a number of you to earn the "True Elite" and "Celebrity" achievements. We are not yet sure if it will be possible to frequently reset the leaderboards, say every month, but it is something we are actively chasing.
The following pair of achievements will now be obtainable:

Kane & Lynch: Dead MenTrue EliteThe True Elite achievement in Kane & Lynch: Dead Men worth 0 pointsPlay as Kane in Fragile Alliance.


Kane & Lynch: Dead MenCelebrityThe Celebrity achievement in Kane & Lynch: Dead Men worth 0 pointsPlay as Lynch in Fragile Alliance.


In order to unlock these achievements, you would have to be ranked #1 for the former and #2 for the latter. With a leaderboard reset, this becomes much more possible and if Eidos can reset the leaderboard each month, it will be even better for the achievement community.

October 1st is the big day, for both the Xbox 360 version and the PC version of Kane and Lynch: Dead Men. Get your boosting sessions ready!

Thanks as well to the members of the community who not only sent this one in, but made this news happen in the first place.

Started the game tonight. Looked at the leaderboards and a lot of the top 100 is the same person or clan.

Good to see an old game still getting some support.
Got a game I have and haven't completed? Don't be shy and let me know.

This is exciting news. Even though I don't own the game (Probably never will, even with this reset) This is fantastic.

Well done community toast

I'll never play this game, but it's always awesome when devs do stuff to help with glitched/wonky/bullshit achievement situations.

Kudos to Eidos.

Now for a Ghostbusters multiplayer stats reset...

Wow. Totally surprised. And if they do it every month, I'll probably support Eidos with a few of their games. What a great way to show their support of the gaming community.

Of course, I'm not going to dick around and actually try for these ridiculous achievements. Long ago, I resigned myself to never completing the game. wink

Who cares? No one plays Kane and Lynch for the leaderboard stats. The achievements related are stupid anyways. Good to see they show some merit of support, even though the game is old as hell.

Hell, not many even people play Kane and Lynch period. I had both games and beat the second one but I still fail to see why they're hailed as some 7th gen top duo like they are regarded.

I don't have the game but this does really suck for the legit players... you play it legit and are high on the boards and you get reset cause others want achievements, no offense to us achievements hunters but it is a bit double.

If you do not plan on resetting the leaderboards in the first place, you should not make achievements tied to those leaderboards.

I don't care about the achievements but it is nice to see two fingers going up to the mindless idiots whom have wasted hours blocking the board.

Well all the players are the same clan, so ... I dont feel sorry for them ruining the leaderboard.
I'm a little bit dysfuctional.
