The Murder Circus has arrived in the 2nd Saints Row DLC drop

Things have (somehow) gotten even more violent in Deep Silver and Volition’s Saints Row reboot, with Doc Ketchum’s… Murder Circus?

It’s like Murderworld all over again

Who can forget their first time at the circus? The cotton candy, the elephants, the acrobats… it’s all do darned magical. Got a mental image? Okay, well forget all of that, because the second DLC pack for Saints Row is absolutely on the other side of reality from it.

Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus is pack number 2 on Deep Silver’s post-launch roadmap, and brings a bunch of fresh content. That includes new playable characters and a horde mode that takes place in the titular arena of terror.

Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus is the second of three DLC expansions coming to Saints Row this summer, introducing a new standalone solo mode with a horde-style gameplay loop in the competitive setup of Doc Ketchum’s underground game show sensation. The DLC comes with four new playable characters, each with their own unique skillset. Saints Row expansion pass holders can now enter Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus while those without a ticket can purchase the DLC now. 

Deep Silver press release

Doc Ketchum’s Murder Circus DLC is out now and available both a’la carte, and as a part of the game’s Expansion Pass. So if you have that, you should be good to go. Additionally, all fans can now get in on the free Boot Hill update, that originally launched in June.

That features a pretty full-fledged revamp of the “Boot Hill” in-game district, as well as new cosmetics and items, the new Cheats App mode, and quality of life improvements that affect “missions, Criminal Ventures, Side Hustles, Skills and more”. You can read the full skinny here, on the Saints Row blog.

Saints Row is out now for Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as the PC.
