The Third Street Saints are Taking Over the White House


Only in the Saints Row universe could a gang banger wielding a dildo bat become the next President of the United States. (Actually, given the current political climate and our recent track record of elected officials, it may not be that far fetched.)

In Saints Row IV, the leader of the Third Street Saints has moved into the White House and added the title of leader of the free world to his rap sheet. But wait, the story gets even kookier than that. Aliens have invaded Earth and trapped the Saints within a “bizarro-Steelport simulation.” In this simulation, the Saints are able to wield superpowers (TK, hyper-speed, otherworldly leaping ability, etc.) and a huge arsenal of exotic–and most likely phallic–alien firepower. (I’m sure I’m not the only one fully expecting to see a dildo-shaped anal probe appear at some point.)

So basically, it’s combining the typical insanity of Saints Row with the super hero elements of Infamous and Crackdown. I can dig that.

Following THQ’s closure, Deep Silver has taken over publishing duties for Saints Row IV. However, Volition continues to have full creative control over the game’s development. Watch for the game on PC or your favorite current-gen console this August 20th in North America (or August 23rd worldwide).
