Right off the heels of acquiring Volition from the now former THQ, Deep Silver has announced that they will be releasing Saints Row IV on August 20th in North America and August 23 everywhere else. This sticks with the original release plans that THQ had for the title before, so it is nice to see this acquisition didn't slow anything down.
The goal this time around for the Saints is to become the President of the United States. If that wasn't enough for you, there will be aliens invading because everything else in the Saints Row world was just not ridiculous enough.
Along with a trailer announcing the game Deep Silver had this to say about the title:
[[quote]]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 installment of Saints Row yet.[[/quote]]
Saints Row IV will release on PS3, Xbox, and PC. Are you glad to see the Saints returning so soon or would you rather have a next generation version of Saints Row IV? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
