European PlayStation 3 gamers who pick up a copy of Saints Row: The Third and redeem the online pass code within the next 90 days will receive a free digital copy of Saints Row 2, THQ and Sony have announced.

Saints Row 2 will be available starting early next week for free, for all players who redeem their online pass. The offer expires on midnight on February 13, 2012, so be sure to redeem your online pass before then. If you've already redeemed your code be sure to keep an eye out for the content next week.

Saints Row 3 is out now and is really rather great fun.

The offer for a free copy of Saints Row 2 comes in the place of what should have been an exclusive game mode built around the dildo weapon. Not sure about you, but we reckon the free copy of Saints Row 2 is a better deal.
