Great news for fans of Saints Row, “Saints Row 4” is officially on the way and set to release Aug. 2013 according to the reveal trailer posted on Gameranx.com Mar. 15. Anyone familiar with the series knows that these games are probably the wildest in the gaming industry. “Saints Row: The Third” was a wild ride and delivered on the series reputation for irreverent chaos and unusual gameplay. If the new trailer for “Saints Row 4” is any indication, that reputation will remain intact.
“Everything else in there suggests an increased level of scale and one-upping, like the team finished the previous game and asked what they could possibly do to top it. To that end, it’s a game filled with explosions, weird clothes, hand-to-hand combat that doesn’t make any sense, laser guns, jumping really high, punching and kicking people so hard they fly away, hitting people covered in ice so they shatter, shooting people with a gun that makes they eyes pop out, dancing on top of cars and nearby them in pink gorilla costumes, punching a bunch of people in mascot costumes that look like energy drink cans and ending the thing with a giant energy-drink giant that’s the size of the stay-puft marshmallow man!”
To say the least the Saints Row games are a wild ride and you will not feel lost by jumping on the fourth game but if you have not played any of the series yet then “Saints Row: The Third” is a fine place to start. There is no Steam store page yet for the game or indication of when the game will be available for presale but it should be coming soon enough.
