Saints Row IV is currently being developed by Volition, the team behind the other entries of the series and the Red Faction series, and 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 a couple of months ago: 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.

Saints Row IV will be released on Ps3, Xbox 360 and Pc on August 23. The game is now available for pre-order: all gamers pre-ordering the game will receive some exclusive preorder DLCs granting some special in-game items. Together with the standard edition, Saints Row IV will receive a couple special editions that will grant even more special in-game items.
