While we heard earlier that THQ would be releasing a season pass for those eager to drop a little bit extra money on Saints Row: The Third DLC ahead of time, we now also know that they will be releasing an online pass for the title. Those who purchase a new copy of the game will find a slip inside with a redeemable one time use code that allows the player to play online co-op as well as a Whored Mode.
This news comes from Joystiq and is in all copies of the game. Of course this means that anyone who buys the game used or rents it won’t be able to enjoy the online co-op section of the game. At least for a Saints Row title, the online isn’t essential to gameplay nor a main focus so many could easily live without it.
