Saints Row 2 Available for Free Today and Tomorrow

by Matthew Hayes

Fancy some free open-world mayhem? Saints Row 2 is free for a couple of days, but you're going to have to grab it fast. For the next 48 hours, GOG and Deep Silver are letting you add the game to your library free of charge. Imagine how excited we were when we saw the following tweet:

"In collaboration with Deep Silver, we are giving away Saints Row 2 to everyone for the next 48 hours!" Well thanks, guys! This is hands down one of the best open-world action games that isn't Grand Theft Auto V. Though it originally came out in 2009, we think you'll find Saints Row 2 absolutely still holds up. Even better, the version you're getting here from GOG is actually an updated version that fixes a few major problems that were prominent in the original PC port. Double win.

To get your free game, head on over to the listing page on GOG and add it to your library. That's it! That's all you have to do, and now you have a fantastic and hilarious new game to play over the weekend (or whenever you feel like it).

"Saints Row 2 brings true freedom to open-world gaming. Players can play as who they want, how they want, and with whomever they want in this sequel to the much acclaimed and tremendously successful Saints Row.

"Set years after the original, the player finds himself in a Stilwater both familiar and strange and challenged with bringing the Saints back as the rightful kings of Stilwater and bringing vengeance to those who wronged him."

  • Limitless Customization - Play as fully customizable characters that are male, female or something in between. Vehicles can be visually customized as well as performance tuned. Cribs and even gangs all have an amazing degree of detailed customization options.

  • Multiplayer - Co-op full story campaign has seamless integration (for example one player drives while the other shoots). Competitive MP pushes the boundaries of immersion in a living Stillwater environment fully populated with police, innocent bystanders and rival gangs.

  • Killer Combat and Awesome Vehicles - Planes, helicopters, motorcycles, boats and cars can be piloted and used as weapons. On the ground new combat options include melee, fine aim, and human shield.

  • Freedom to Explore - More missions, activities, diversions, races, weapons, vehicles, cribs, city districts, and interiors than ever before. Over 40 story missions with additional bonus missions take place in a transformed Stilwater that is over 50% larger than before.
