SR 2 DLC on the way...
IGN: Saints Row 2 Preview
Saints Row 2 is about to get its first downloadable add-on. Due out April 16, the Ultor Exposed expansion will add three new missions, a mission metagame, six vehicles, more hairstyles and outfits, and new multiplayer maps. Oh, Tera Patrick will also be a new in-game character and one of your homies. All of that comes with the price of 800 Microsoft points or $9.99.
The meta-game is a new competitive co-op gameplay mode that works not only in the Ultor Exposed mission arc, but also in all of the existing Saints Row 2 missions.
During the metagame, players will receive points for getting kills and causing mayhem during missions. Killing your co-op partner will result in a penalty, so it's all about getting the job at hand done as destructively as possible. Points are shown on screen as they're earned so you'll always know the score.
There are six new vehicles in Ultor Exposed, all of which are available in the player's garage. Many of them are equipped with destructive weaponry, like the EDF Scout which makes an explosive crossover appearance from Red Faction: Guerilla or the Vulture, a military grade helicopter that's all about air superiority.
