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."
