Deep Silver and Volition will release Saints Row IV on August 20th in North America and August 23rd in the rest of the world, according to the game’s first trailer which was revealed this morning.
Saints Row IV will be out in full force at PAX East, which was confirmed by Deep Silver PR. Judging from the teaser, Saints Row IV is doubling down on the over the top antics of Saints Row: The Third. It also appears to be using a lot of the assets created from the last game as well, if you didn’t know any better, you’d think you were watching a trailer from the third game considering who similar the city and characters models look.
Look for more details about Saints Row: IV in the week ahead.
Update Deep Silver has now issued an official press release for Saints Row IV
“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.
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. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.
Save the world, Saints Style.
Developed by Volition, 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.”
