At long last, THQ has released the additional content for Saints Row: The Third that was previously promised exclusively for PS3 owners. For all players that purchase Saints Row: The Third on PlayStation 3 and redeem their online pass codes within the next 90 days, they will receive a digital copy of Saints Row 2 (a $19.99 value)… absolutely free! If you read our Saints Row: The Third review you already know how much we enjoyed that game and if you haven’t played Saints Row 2 it’s an excellent precursor to see just how far the Saints have come.
Go back to a simpler time, when the Saints were vying for control of Stilwater, before they were global icons, a household name, and a criminal empire. Before Professor Genki and the Syndicate, there were the Westside Rollers and the Brotherhood. Enjoy classic Saints Row activities like Septic Avenger, where you spray new homes with sewage in order to devalue property. And of course, enjoy a number of DLC packs brought to you by Volitions’ favorite Saints Row 2 producer, Tera Patrick.
Saints Row 2 will be available starting early next week for free, for all players who redeem their online pass in each new copy of Saints Row: The Third. The offer expires on midnight on February 13, 2012, so be sure to redeem your online pass before then, and for those of you who have already done so, keep an eye out early next week for the content. This offer applies to the United States, Canada, and Mexico only.
This isn’t a bad deal, especially for those folks that didn’t get a chance to play Saints Row 2, which was really good by the way. It’s like 2 games for the price of one.
