Some staff at Saints Row studio Volition were uncomfortable with former publisher THQ's emphasis on porn actresses when promoting the series, a producer has revealed.
Seeing as it's been more than six months since the game hit the shelves, you might have expected Volition to beef up Saints Row 2 rather more substantially than it has with this lightweight serving of DLC.
You also might have expected more content for your cash - Ultor Exposed carries a price tag of 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80), or GBP 7.99 on PSN. The hard sell is that you get to play with (or rather, alongside) US porn star Tera Patrick in three new campaign missions. It's headline-grabbing rather than crotch-grabbing stuff, and shockingly each mission can be romped through in around ten minutes. Ker-ching.
There's little to recommend about Ultor Exposed - even to players who agreed with Rob's exuberant assessment (9/10) back in October. As with many of Saints Row 2's campaign missions, the story arc feels like a by-the-numbers exercise in every sense.
THQ has delayed the release of Saints Row 2's Ultor Exposed downloadable content until 23rd April.
Volition has revealed that it is working on three downloadable content packs for Saints Row 2, the first of which, Ultor Exposed, is due out on 16th April for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Tera Patrick stars in Ultor Exposed.
Hiring pornstar Tera Patrick can't be cheap, but certainly arouses a lot of attention, and THQ's decided to base a block of Saints Row DLC around her.
