Saints Row IV is looking more and more like it belongs in the Crackdown universe - and that's not a bad thing. We already know the game will gift players with super powers like leaping tall buildings, flying, and the ability to glow, but now we're seeing enemies that look pretty similar to the infected folks of Crackdown 2. The latest trailer for the Saints Row IV is called "Meet the President" and we'll let it speak (as well as wub wub) for itself.
In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying. Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.
Saints Row IV is set to be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this August. It'll feature two player online co-op and plenty of nut shots...or so I've been told.
