First Saints Row 2 DLC Revealed

14
Voliton has detailed Ultor Exposed, the first of three Saints Row 2 downloadable content packs for Xbox 360 and PS3, via Eurogamer.

In the new Ultor Exposed mission arc, an Ultor microbiologist played by adult entertainment actress Tera Patrick joins the--tee hee--gang bangers of the Third Street Saints to--titter titter--expose the evil megacorporation. Which conveniently involves many explosions.

As Tera Patrick was previously featured in Saints Row 2's advertising campaign, we tentatively await news that the next DLC pack will bring Gary Busey to Stillwater.

Ultor Exposed adds four multiplayer maps--two each for the Strong Arm and Gangster Brawl modes--and six new vehicles. The new Competitive Coop mode rewards destruction with cash. Plus, you can pretty yourself up with new outfits and hairstyles.

Voliton have not announced a PC release--though the door is technically open as Saints Row 2 on PC requires Steam, which recently added support for DLC.

Ultor Exposed arrives April 16, costing 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox and $10 for PS3.

    The first thing that comes to mind when I read this is "Saints Row 3" and when I think about that the first thing that comes to my mind is "Please no".

        Its not bad I prefer the first one personally was way more polished.

        There biggest problem for me is the graphics they are hurting compared to practically all the other sandbox games:

        GTAIV
        Wheelman
        Just Cuase
        Crackdown

        * SR2 textures and effects are real budget and are worse than Saints Row 1 how is that possible??? *


        Plus I still feel like SR2 feels weird once you escape from jail and hit the main land almost feels just budget and stupid (first part was well done).

          laff you're an idiot.

          SR1 was rampant with bugs and streaming issues.

          SR2 fixed all of that and added on top of it additional over the top gameplay that GTA IV doesn't even come close to comparing to.

          Sure the MP wasn't that great in SR2, but the co op experience was probably on par with crackdown. Which IMO rival or surpass that of Halo 1/2/3.

          If graphics and emo are your bread and butter then go play more GTA IV and fap to your more "realistic-looking" strippers. The rest of us will be playing a game and doing cool crazy shit together.

            Laugh you can’t read or spell (laff = laugh) and no I will not be immature and verbally insult you like you did.

            “Their biggest problem for me is the graphics they are hurting compared to practically all the other sandbox games:”

            I am only talking about the graphics for that is my issue.

              I agree that the graphics in SR2 are definitely lacking. But I've played both SR2 and GTAIV extensively, and I'm definitely enjoying SR2 more.

              Now if there was a game with GTAIV's looks but SR2's personality, I'd be in heaven.

              Valcan - you stated that the first game was more polished and it was far from it. Graphics are not polish - a hard-lock free game is polish. Granted, you could argue that it isn't volition's fault and instead lay the blame at MSFT's feet for the DVD drive's inability to maintain the high streaming rate off of the disc.

              Volition took everything from the first game and made it better in the second.

              Your other complaint is regarding the graphics being somehow substandard in comparison between GTA IV and SR 1/ 2. Graphics do not make or break a game. They support it, but if the gameplay is fundamentally flawed and boring - the best graphics in the world will only support it so much.

              Hence why Rockstar saw one of the biggest sales drop off in their release history.

              I apologize for calling you an idiot - but SR 2 was much more polished than SR 1 - EOT.

              He purposely misspelt "laugh"; it's an internet thing. Regardless, you know someone's lost an argument when they try to pull the old "spelling and grammar" argument out of the hat, especially against someone whose spelling is flawless when your own post is writhing with grammatical errors. (Try using commas once in a while).

              Anyhow, the graphic style of SR2 is beautiful and much nicer than GTA. Realism is fine, sure, but they're nothing special. Why is everyone so worked up about realism, anyway? If you hadn't noticed, if you get shot a lot of times in GTA IV, you're fine. Especially when you eat a hotdog. If people wanted games to be like reality, they wouldn't be playing games in the first place; they'd be doing the activities they want to do in real life. SR2's graphic style is frankly amazing. Can you honestly say you'd want GTA graphics when you base jump out of a plane (having unlocked "no fall damage"), hit the ground and stand up again? It'd be a joke. The whole POINT of SR2 is that it's a joke, and it taking the fun aspects of GTA and leaving out all the serious bits. Why would it have serious graphics?

      Did you even play Saint's Row 2?

        Yes, and it was horrible to me(!). I just couldn't fancy the in your face humor and the bland gameplay. Not to speak about the technical problems the pc version had. I just can't see the fun in everything BIGGER and LOUDER and more CRAZY. It felt forced and immature, I just didn't like it.

        And the GTA bashing ads just added to the bad impression.

          Totally agree with everything you said (I went as far as to uninstall it from my comp), I had the PC version as well which ran real bad, besides that the game is not fun and looks like crap especially if you keep up with PC games.

          The humor was just plain stupid and most of the time all the environments just did not look right. Not to mention the cars looked, felt and handled bad. Its money wasted on steam all well. They went way over the top and should have stayed on track to more of what SR1 was I have re bought SR1 to try and remove the taste of SR2.

            PC version was not the version to play for SR2 - you have my condolences.

              Lol :) ya for most PC users that would be the case for sure.

              But I have a very good PC, I played the game no prob at MAX setting @ 1920 x 1080 with a 360 controller. (3.4 quad core 45mm, geforce 295, geforce 260 physx, ddr2 1000mhz 8gig, Vista 64, X-FI pci-e platinum, etc)

              I got the PC version since it had better graphics over the 360 and ps3 version which I could of bought since I have both machines, it made a small difference but not enough for my graphical taste and standards.

                I also assume that you played SP which is another error. The game was meant to be played cooperatively.

                GTA IV PC w/ video editor > SR2 Shitty PC Port.

                  GTA IV was a worse port than SR2. SR2 had pangs of spike every few minutes on max graphic quality. GTA IV had a hugely reduced framerate on high graphic quality.

                    No, because GTA IV PC included the video editor and it's fairly easy to mod, which adds significant replayabiilty and improves upon the user experience. SR2 was just cheaper, but still ran like shit from what I heard.

                      GTA IV PC has mods that improve performance too. I have no problems running it, even modless on my midrange PC.

                      Runs fine on highest graphics. Maybe half a second of spike every 4 minutes or something. I don't see what the problem is at all.

                      Video editor sucks. Use fraps.

      SR2 is a great game. So is GTA IV. Can we all just play them both and get over it?
