Saints Row 4 Announced, Coming in August, has Trailer
Not that long ago, Volition’s future was in doubt due to THQ’s financial woes. However, Deep Silver laid out the long green during the THQ assets auction, paying $22.3 million to acquire the Saints Row developer. If you’re wondering why they did that, well, maybe a little thing called Saints Row 4 had something to do with it.
What’s the story like? Well, here’s a short synopsis from the folks at Volition/Deep Silver:
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.
Aliens? The head of the Saints as the President? Superpowers? Oh, I am SO IN.
That’s the debut trailer up above. Saint’s Row 4 is hitting US shelves on August 20. We’re slated to meet with Volition at PAX East next week, so I imagine we’ll have all sorts of info for you from the show. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: In case Saints Row wasn’t wacky enough for you, here’s a new promo image featuring the Saints crossing…the Delaware, I guess. You can click the image for a larger, wallpaper-worthy version.
