If you thought Saints Row: The Third was insane, you got another thing coming. Today Deep Silver has announced that Saints Row IV will be available in August.
In the next installment of the over-the-top franchise, we get super powers after the leader of the Third Street Saints gets elected as president thanks to an alien invasion. We can’t make this stuff up folks! Here is the description of the game directly from Deep Silver:
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 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! Just what the Saints Row franchise needed to step it up a notch! Players will be trying to escape the simulation using alien technology and super powers. This definitely has lots of potential to become a fun game.
Developed by Volition, who were recently acquired by Deep Silver after THQ went bankrupt, 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.
