Saints Row IV Trailer Shows War for Humanity

With aliens invading, only lasers, robots, and pixelated nudity can save the human race.

The Saints Row series certainly doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is a huge part of its appeal. It’s going to take a lot to top the insanity of Saints Row: The Third, but its successor appears to be well on its way. Who cares about a purple dildo weapon when you’ve got aliens, spaceships, robots, lasers, and nudity in the latest trailer for “the most dramatic Saints Row game ever”?

The trailer was revealed on the Saints Row twitter account earlier today, where it was referred to as “the Citizen Kane of game trailers.” There are some returning characters and new faces in the trailer, but the question of “why is the President naked all the time” is, sadly, left unanswered. We do get a better idea of the scope of Saints Row IV‘s alien invasion in the video, and it looks rather threatening. I’m sure it’s nothing some dubstep can’t fix, though.

Developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver after it acquired the franchise from defunct publisher THQ, Saints Row IV is due out on August 20. Then we’ll get to find out what this Keith David guy is all about.
