G4: Obama And Palin Coming to Mercenaries 2 As Playable Characters

From G4: "Turns out that the rumors were true! Barack Obama and Sarah Palin are indeed coming to Mercenaries 2: World in Flames as playable characters in an upcoming update.

X-Play landed the exclusive story and snagged some extra footage for us. We just had to set it to Hail to the Chief.

Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb revealed the news just moments ago on X-Play in the Gaming Update.

Tom Stratton of Pandemic Studios gave the following statement to X-Play:

"Mercenaries 2 is a game seemingly ripped straight out of today's headlines and fueled with the same type of over-the-top action found in the best summer blockbuster films. It only makes sense we inject the game with a spin on current affairs. The timing was too good to let pass."

I love how they both look like they fit perfectly into the game. We got ourselves some Mercenary candidates!

When I played the demo for M2 it felt completely uninspiring, but if I can burn Venezuela as Palin or Obama... damn I just might compromise my position of this being a crappy game and buy it O_o

LOL @ Palin instead of McCain.

ASSASSYN 36o3973d ago

McCain is old and would die in the game by simply running around the map.

Parapraxis3973d ago

You know Obama's fighting strategy throughout the entire game will be starving the enemy to death at a negotiating table
