Those hoping for Saints Row V will need to wait just a little bit longer, with Volition confirming during last weekends Penny Arcade Expo that they have been hard at work on a standalone expansion Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell. In Gat Out of Hell, players take on the role of Johnny Gat and Kenzie Kensington as they is sent into hell via a nefarious spirit board incident and left to combat demons, the horrors of the underworld (including prominent historical figures) and, of course, the Devil himself. Why? All to rescue the Leader of the Saints… the President of the United States.
After the space faring antics of Saints Row IV, many fans asked what we could do next… the answer? Shoot The Devil in the face. Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the leader of the Saints’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in the open world standalone expansion playground that is Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell.
Gat Out of Hell is a completely stand alone expansion pack and does not require the original game. This is a good thing as not only will the game be launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox360 and PC – but also the newest generation of consoles. While they are not naming console names yet, presumably this will be both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. There will also an opportunity to buy the Saints Row IV: Re-Elected pack which, available for the latest generation of consoles, will provide both the original game and Gat Out of Hell expansion.
Irrespective of what way you go, all collections will be available from January 27th, 2015 in the Americas and January 30th, 2015 in PAL regions including Australia. Well… that is provided the game doesn’t get edited due to concerns by the Australian Classification Board again.
