Barack Obama and Sarah Palin in Mercenaries 2
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.
