Saints Row 4 announced for August release
Open world action game returns with even more crazy
Deep Silver has announced that Saints Row IV, the next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is set for August release.
In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, 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 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.
Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. Players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis.
Developed by Volition, the game will be published by Deep Silver who purchased the rights to the game from THQ when the company auctioned off its assets. Saints Row IV will launch on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.
