Well here’s a weird one. G4 are reporting that come November’s first DLC update for Mercenaries 2, Barack Obama and Sarah Palin will become playable characters. (Note: the DLC is not confirmed for PC, but it’s also not not confirmed. We hope. We’ll ditch this story later if I’m stupid and wrong.) It sounds like an unseasonal April Fool’s, but there’s a video to prove it.
G4TV report Pandemic Studios’ Tom Stratton saying,
“Mercenaries 2 is a game seemingly ripped straight out of today’s headlines and fuelled 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.”
Please post your variants on “I’d like it better if I could shoot at [insert candidate here]!” below.
