One of the newest additions included with Saints Row 2's first DLC package is a brand new Co-Op Metagame. The basis of this is to turn co-op into not only an advancement through the story, but an add-in for massive competition. We've also made it very easy to start up.
Pause the game and move over to select the "CO-OP" options menu. Scroll to the bottom and turn on the new mode. Now all that's left is to start a mission and the metagame will immediately activate and start keeping score. Hit the jump for more details and some screenshots of the new metagame in action.
There are many different ways to accrue points while playing a mission in this mode, and I've included them below.
- Killing gang members
- Killing gang lieutenants
- Destroying gang and police vehicles
- Reviving homies
- Causing prop damage (think "Mayhem" activity)
- Special kill bonuses (head shot, nut shot, melee, explosion, human shield kill)
When the mission ends, a tally screen will appear (bottom right screenshot above) and the player with the most points wins some extra cash. Pretty simple, right? This mode is meant to be non-intrusive, but also intuitive to what is going on in the game world for both players. If one of your friends have ever bragged that they could do better than you in a specific mission, it's time for them to prove it!Comment
