Saints Row 4 Gets a Release Date


If you're like me then you were pretty pissed to find out that Saints Row 3 would not be getting it's "Enter the Dominatrix" expansion. THQ decided that they would turn the DLC in to a full blown game instead.

Well, Saints Row fanatics, this is your moment. Saints Row 4 has gotten an August 20th release date (in North America, it will be the 24th of August every where else). Deep Silver, the company who took Saints Row from THQ after the huge financial troubles that THQ has gone through over the last few months.

Deep Silver have assured us that this is not going to be just the standalone expansion for Saints Row 3's DLC "Enter the Dominatrix", but it will be much more.  Hopefully there will be a whole lot more. I was really looking forward to those superpowers becoming permanent! Here is the official quote from PAX East:

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 instalment of Saints Row yet.

Below is the teaser trailer for the game. Enjoy! Let us know your thoughts about this in the comments section below. Looking forward to hear what everybody thinks about the game.
