Saints Row Celebrates (mocks) GTAV with GATV DLC

SR4-banner-2Those jokesters over at Volition are at it again.  To take advantage of today’s release of Grand Theft Auto 5, and perhaps to mock the game’s absence from the PC platform, they’ve issued the GATV pack for free on Steam.  Read on for the details.

The news first showed up earlier today on the game’s official Twitter page, making prolific use of the #GATV hashtag.  The GATV Pack is an add-on to Saints Row 4 which will allow you to appear as Johnny Gat in the game.  In addition to Gat’s stunningly handsome visage, the GATV pack also comes with an Aisha outfit, thus allowing you and a friend to stage a co-op reunion between the two tragic lovers which was until now only possible in fan fiction.  Rounding out the DLC is a heavy machine gun, and a gun that shoots knives.  In any other game, a knife gun would seem crazy, but it’s probably not even in the top 5 of crazy guns in SR4.

The pack is available for free on Steam right now, as a treat to those PC players who felt snubbed by Rockstar deciding not to release GTA5 on their platform (for now).  Starting tomorrow, it’ll sell for $2.99.  It’s also available for purchase on PSN and Xbox Live in North America, and will become available worldwide tomorrow.  Check out the exquisitely edited trailer below.  Don’t wait, act now.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
