Senior Producer Jim Boone from Volition will lead you through the urban chaos of virtual Steelport. In the upcoming Saints Row IV for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC, not only will you greet your citizens as President of the USA with friendly… punches, but you’ll also have some mind-boggling weapons will also be at your disposal. Make your people dance to the funky beats of your Dubstep Gun and literally kill them with music! Weapons now not only can be upgraded; this time you will be also able to change their looks.
In Saints Row IV you will encounter enemies that are certainly…out of this world! Blast them to pieces… either with your super Mech… or your superpowers!
Today Deep Silver and Volition released a simultaneously awesome & terrifying new trailer showcasing all-new in-game footage for the upcoming Saints Row IV for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC platforms. As the President of the United States of ‘Merica, you are a presidential ass-kicker delivering justice Saints-style to the invading alien empire, the Zin. Your out of this world powers are second-to-none, as is your ability to deliver a perfect nut-shot. BOOM.
Today Deep Silver announced that Saints Row IV™, the ball-busting next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is starting a party in your pants this Fall.
In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, Deep Silver Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
Volition has dropped the newest DLC for Saints Row the Third and it stars that wacky cat, Professor Genki. I’ll go right out and say that I was a little disappointed in the content of the first DLC to be included with the Season Pass. If you were expecting new missions to extend the story, this is not what you’re looking for. There is a lot of content in here but it all just lets out a giant “meh”. What you do get are some reconstructed side activities. They are basically just modified versions of already existing activities. There’s a modified super ethical reality climax activity all set in a jungle setting. The setting looks nice but it just makes things more confusing to walk around although that may be the whole point in trying to find the exit. There’s a modified escort mission where you drive Prof. Genki around Steelport in a car built with flamethrowers. You must do his bidding and kill people to fill up a meter. Its neat for a little bit using the flamethrower but after awhile it can become aggravating like the other escort missions.
When we last left our “heroes”, the Third Street Saints had taken over Stilwater and reached the likes of rock stars. People want to be them and fall head over heels for them. We welcome back: Johnny Gat, Shaundi, and “Boss” (your character) back from Saints Row 2. The very first mission? Rob a bank, what else. Oh did I mention while wearing Johnny Gat Bobble Heads? Yeah, let that sink in. This all leads to a crazy bank shootout in which you still have time to sign a few autographs. Hell, a cop even requests you sign and drop then drop your weapons. The whole ordeal eventually ends with you falling out of a cargo plane shooting baddies and dodging debris. You’re literally skydiving to enter the new city of Steelport. The game is filled with crazy moments like these that just beg you to talk to your friend’s about. “Yo man, I just got to the part with the autotuned guy”. “Are you serious? ugh, there’s a guy who sings in Autotune?” “No dude he TALKS in autotune.” “WTF.” or maybe you’re standing around the water cooler at the office and you’re telling Bob about how you spent 15 minutes fighting off a wave of guys dressed as hotdogs and bunny rabbits. Thankfully, these crazy moments aren’t stacked on top of each other so you’ll have something new and crazy to see throughout your game. By the way, you need to play this game.
