Volition announces Saints Row 4 expansion, next gen ports
PAX Prime has kicked off in Seattle Washington, and Saints Row developer Volition was there with a duo of big announcements. Next gen ports of Saints Row 4 will be releasing this January alongside a brand new expansion, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell. It looks as awesome as it sounds. Read on for all the saintly details.
Earlier today, Saints Row developer Volition took to the stage at PAX Prime to announce a brand new expansion for Saints Row 4. Gat Out of Hell. The expansion will be a stand alone experience, and answers the question of where the Saints could possibly go after conquering the known universe. The answer? Hell, naturally. In Gat Out of Hell, The Boss has been abducted by Satan, and taken to the city of New Hades. Satan’s evil plan is to force The Boss into marrying his daughter, and it’s up to Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington to rescue them. In classic Saints Row fashion, players will be able to explore an all new sandbox environment and complete the game’s campaign however they wish, either by burning through the story quests, or by taking your time, completing diversions, and searching for hidden loot. Super powers will be making a return, with the addition of angelic flight, holy auras, and demonic summons. Seven deadly weapons have also been added, each meant to embody one of the seven deadly sins. Check out the trailer below.
Look like fun? Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell can either be played solo, or co-op with a friend, and will be released January 27th in North America and January 30th internationally. It will retail for $20, and be available on current and next generation consoles, as well as PC. Yes, I said next generation consoles. The Saints will be making the jump to PS4 and Xbox One in January as well with Saints Row 4: Re-Elected. Along with the expected graphical upgrade, Re-Elected will come with all previously releases DLC for Saints Row 4. It releases on the same day as Gat Out of Hell.
