Billy Shakespeare's Revenge! The Saints Row IV: Gat Out of Hell Launch Trailer

| 16 Jan 2015 17:20

The only Roman numeraled game you need to care about this week, and next week.

All you need to know about this trailer is that a Dudley Death Drop takes place within the first 60 seconds.

But since writing a one-line news post is poor form, let's get down to the remaining brass tacks. Deep Silver and Volition are releasing a duet this coming Tuesday. First up is the standalone Saints Row IV DLC, Gat Out of Hell. Coming to the PC, and every major, current console not made by Nintendo, Gat Out of Hell involves Satan, Vlad the Impaler, some guy who is not Barack Obama pretending to be the President of the United States, and most of the cast from the Saints Row gang you know and love and/or despise.

Satan? Saving the President? At this point it sounds like the John Carpenter flick that John Carpenter never got to make (because he was too busy coming up with sweet synth numbers). (Sidebar: Re-making Escape from New York is the worst idea of 2015 so far!)

Also hitting on the 20th is Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, which is the original alien-fighting Matrix homage, but brought to new-gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One). If you haven't played the original, and want to play Gat Out of Hell? This might be a better place to start.
