Saints Row IV is currently being developed by Volition, the team behind the other entries of the series and the Red Faction series, and it will be published by Deep Silver: the franchise was part of the properties auctioned off by THQ after the company went bankrupt.
The game was officially unveiled last month: Saint’s Row IV will be set in a fictional Washington D.C. and futuristic Steelport, with the Saints leader elected president. Right after the election, an alien invasion begins and the earth becomes overrun by these mysterious visitors from space.
Deep Silver has fully detailed the special edition of the game called Commander In Chief Edition: this special edition will be available all over the world and include many pre-order DLCs.
All the DLCs are themed around the fact that the Saints leader is now President of the United States: one of the extra DLC items is going to be a Screaming Eagle Jet, firing rockets from its talons. The second DLC bonus item is an Uncle Sam outfit, while the third is an extra weapon called Merica: Merica is an all in one weapon including a rocket launcher, a dub step gun and flamethrowers.
Saints Row IV will be launched in August on Ps3, Xbox 360 and Pc.
