Channel Your Inner John McClane to Help the Saints Save Christmas in Saints Row IV


If you own Saints Row IV and a downloadable content season pass, you’ll be able to get into the holiday spirit with the upcoming DLC pack How the Saints Save Christmas, now officially confirmed for a release date of December 11th. For those who chose not to buy the season pass, the DLC will be sold separately for $6.99.

So, how do the Saints save Christmas? By referencing Die Hard, perhaps the greatest holiday season action flick of all-time, and going all John McClane on evil gingerbread men and nutcracker soldiers. You see, Santa has been trapped inside the simulation, and the Third Street Saints must help their Scrooge of a boss discover the true meaning of Christmas in enough time to save jolly old St. Nick.

The mission pack will feature three new story driven quests, three new weapons including the Red Rider BB Gun, Christmas Dubstep Gun, and North Pole, and two new vehicles including Santa’s Sleigh and Flying Reindeer.

If you are feeling particularly merry this holiday season, you can also sign up for the Saints Row Sing-A-Long Christmas Carol Contest. Simply download the provided lyrics and MP3 of “Saints Row Jingle Bells,” and record a video of you and your friends and family singing the Third Street Saints’ twist on the classic Christmas carol. Then submit your video for a chance to win a holiday prize pack containing a Gioteck EX-05 Headset, Razar DeathAdder Ergonomic Mouse, Gloryfy Limited Edition G3 Saints Row unbreakbable sunglasses, and the Saints Row IV Official Bradygames Strategy Guide.

Now enjoy a fresh batch of How the Saints Save Christmas screenshots. Merry Christmas, Saints!
