To say that Saints Row IV is bombastic would be a drastic understatement. This game is literally exploding with energy, creativity, and all-out adrenaline from its opening moments and never lets off the gas until the credits roll. It is the embodiment of a big budget action film, heavily inspired by blockbusters from the 90’s and early 2000’s both in spirit and in many of its concepts. It wears these influences proudly, and loves to show off how far it can push the ideas upon which it’s based, demonstrating that it can in fact outdo the things that shaped it at every step. It’s a big, loud, weird, thrilling package, and it was one of the highlights of the previous console generation for me. At a time when most games were becoming increasingly self-serious, the Saints Row series wielded levity and parody as its most powerful weapons alongside strong design and well-tuned game play. And now, you can take that experience anywhere, because it’s available for the Nintendo Switch, and I have good news: this game is still really good.
The Saints Row series is all about the freedom to play how you want, and we’re now taking that one step further today with the launch of Steam Workshop support for Saints Row IV on PC. It’s never been easier to create and install mods that add new weapons, clothing and change the way you play.

Developers Flying Wild Hog and Telltale Games, along with the closet zombies of Devolver Digital, are excited to announce an unprecedented cross promotion between Shadow Warrior and The Walking Dead. Starting today, Wang fans can wield the zombie slaying ice axe from The Walking Dead in Flying Wild Hog’s reimagined Shadow Warrior as an alternative to the iconic katana.
I thank every one of you for reading this introductory text. This means you somehow don’t have the Season Pass, or maybe you do, and you want to see if your $10 was well spent for the first of two pieces of DLC. You shouldn’t worry, but read on anyway.
Developers Flying Wild Hog and Volition, along with the publisher illuminati of Devolver Digital and Deep Silver, are excited to announce an unprecedented cross promotion between Shadow Warrior and Saints Row IV. Through this groundbreaking show of absurdity, owners of Saints Row IV on Steam will unlock the legendary ‘Penetrator’ weapon in Flying Wild Hog’s reimagined Shadow Warrior as a powerful-but-elegant alternative to the traditional katana. Yep, read that again.
“I’m sorry I can’t really hear you over the sound of all that money being thrown at screens around the world,” said Fork Parker, Devolver Digital CFO. “And I don’t know what to tell you other than you can now wield a giant purple dildo from Saints Row IV in Shadow Warrior. There’s your headline, nerds.”
Again, not sure what else to tell you all that hasn’t been summed up already. If you own Saints Row IV on Steam and purchase Shadow Warrior, you can literally use the big purple Penetrator in place of a katana in Shadow Warrior to sever the heads off of demons. We know, and yet we can’t really believe it ourselves.
Shadow Warrior is set to launch via Steam for PC on September 26, 2013. Saints Row IV is currently available for Steam, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
