Saints Row 4 Announced (Updated)
Just a few weeks back we heard a rumour of an upcoming Saints Row 4 announcement at PAX East. It didn't even get to that. Deep Silver were so impatient (and probably proud) that they released an announcement trailer today. Additionally it already has a release date - August 20, 2013 in North America and August 23 in the rest of the world.
Now with a lot of crazy punches and colourful explosions we can see that the game looks very similar to its predecessor. That raises a question did it really have to be called "4"? As we remember this was meant to be an expansion, then evolved into a standalone game – Enter the Dominatrix (not a sequel) and now it is a full-fledged sequel. Though in all honesty we saw a lot of things squeezed into those 67 seconds and to judge a game just from that is a bit unfair, especially considering that it will have a lot of new things going like having super powers (though this was done in the DLC), running for office and fighting giant energy drinks.
What do you think? Enjoy the inflating heads and hanging penises above and let me know your thoughts down below.
Update: Deep Silver said that they will not interfere with the development of Saints Row 4 and any faults are on Volition. Volition will even get time to polish the game without any pressure from the publisher. So whatever happens it’s all up to Volition now.
