The upcoming downloadable content (DLC) for Mercenaries 2 has two special characters that you’ll no doubt recognize. Yes, that’s Barack Obama and Sarah Palin running around the game’s battlefields with grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. In some of the more violent moments, Obama throws a grenade into a tank, killing a man inside and Sarah Palin smashes a man’s face against a console. It’s borderline tasteless.

The game currently has a 72 on Metacritic, so you’re not missing much if you skip out on the game.

The update containing the characters is scheduled for an early November release.
