Saints Alive! – Saints Row IV Revealed

March 15, 2013, Author: Matt Parker

Ever imagined how cool playing Saints Row 3 would be if you had super-powers like in Infamous or Crackdown?

Well, looks like you won’t have to wonder much longer. Saints Row IV has gone and got itself a teaser trailer. So you can consider yourselves teased.

Promising to be the ‘Ball-busting next chapter’ of the Saints Row story, it’ll see you (the leader of ‘The Saints’) taking residence in the White House.

Being President of the United States of America seems to be only the start of the ridiculousness. There’s mention of aliens, super-powers and what looks like a gun that causes your enemy’s head to inflate.


Whilst it’s great to see the Saints series continue, it’ll be interesting to see how this game turns out given its history. Saints Row IV started life as a piece of DLC which was then greenlit to become its own thing by those in charge of THQ at the time. THQ were then forced to sell-off Volition and the Saints Row franchise as part of their attempt at staying alive. Their failed attempt. Pour one out…

Luckily, Deep Silver were on hand to pick up the pieces and are now in charge of both the studio and the franchise. As long as they avoid creating any more gross pre-order incentives, I think we’ll be OK.

Here’s to hoping that it turns out well though. Saints Row 3 was one of the stupidest games I’ve ever played. I mean that in the most positive of ways.
