Next opponent for the Saints is of course, Satan.
Take note 'Saints Row' fans and PS4 owners. Volition has just announced a new standalone expansion, 'Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell,' which is coming to the PS4 and PS3, (with other systems likely as well).
From Volition, "Fans have been wondering: where we can possibly go after the Saints have conquered the known Universe? Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell is our answer. Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington embark on a quest to save The President/God Emperor of the Universe from Hell’s infernal city of New Hades. After teaming up with former enemy Dane Vogel, they learn The Boss is going to be forced to marry Satan’s daughter! The Saints must conquer the demon-infested city and save their friend before it is too late.
"For the first time, players can play as their favorite Saints, Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington solo or cooperatively with a friend. This expansion features an open-world city sandbox where players progress the story however they please: medaling on activities, completing diversions, exploring, conquering the city, finding hidden treasures, killing — the possibilities are sure to please!
"Our brand new city of New Hades features five distinct islands including a barren wasteland of an ancient war, a towering downtown for Hell’s elite, and a crammed slums built for ultimate suffering. This new environment is specifically catered to one of our new supernatural powers: angelic flight! With angelic wings, our Saints will terrorize the ranks of Hell’s armies from ankle-biting imps to massive Arch-Demons.
"Super powers are making a return with supernatural twists from demonic summons to deadly holy auras. A new arsenal of wicked weapons can be found as well as The 7 Legendary Deadly Weapons — each the twisted embodiment of one of the 7 deadly sins! Fans may also find some much needed closure for past friends (And enemies!)."
Volition is working with 'Saints Row IV' DLC partner, High Voltage software on the new standalone expansion, but that isn't all. The developer has also just announced 'Saints Row IV: Re-Elected,' the new-gen (PS4 and hopefully included all DLC content) version of 'Saints Row IV.' (Check out the review of the original PC version here.) Volition has confirmed that 'Saints Row IV: Re-Elected' will include 'Gat Out of Hell' and is also coming to the Xbox One. Both are due out on January 27th.
You can find the latest info on 'Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell' and 'Saints Row IV: Re-Elected' linked from our Video Game Release Schedule.
