To many, the original Saints Row was known as nothing more than a Grand Theft Auto imitation. Now, a lot of those people are calling Saints Row 2 everything GTA 4 would have been if Rockstar had stayed on the “silly” route. Rockstar went for a change of pace and focused on realism, and Volition seem to have filled in the spot for insane fun rather well with Saints row 2. As a lot of people begin to forget about Stillwater, Volition are here to bring you all back with the first of three set pieces of DLC: Ultor Exposed.
This first batch of content will bring a bunch of new features, including new vehicles to your garages, new hairstyles and clothes to your wardrobe, a whole new mission arc and get this, porn star Tera Patrick joins the Saints! Being the leader of the crew, you naturally get her on speed dial.
In an interview with Eurogamer, Volition give us their take on console DLC, intentions with their own content and details on Ultor Exposed:
The Ultor Exposed mission arc stars your new homie, Tera Patrick, who portrays herself as an ex-Ultor microbiologist. Tera reveals data regarding nefarious experiments conducted by Ultor and would like to bring the corporation down in a public way. Really, it’s all about vengeance. These missions, along with all of the Ultor Exposed content, are fully playable in co-op. They’re packed with high-octane sequences that will give players the challenge they’ve been asking for.
The new Co-op Competitive Mode works with both the Ultor Exposed and all existing Saints Row 2 missions. Once activated within the pause menu, each player will receive points for kills and mayhem during missions. Points are shown on screen as they’re earned. At the end of the mission one player will walk away with cash money for the win. You’re penalised for killing your co-op partner which keeps the focus on completing the mission as quickly and destructively as possible. It’ll have you playing missions repeatedly for the high score.
It’s all about getting more game. Saints Row 2 is a massive playground, so we put a lot of time and energy into assembling a package appropriate to the scope and diversity of that experience.
Sounds exciting! This pack will be priced at 800 Microsoft Points and is due for release on the 16th of April. Looking forward to being able to ride around Stillwater with a porn star? Or does the idea of more customization and things to blow up give you more of a tingling feeling somewhere it shouldn’t? You probably shouldn’t tell us, but go ahead anyway!
