The lights are on
Publisher Deep Silver has revealed that an expansion pack for Saints Row IV is on the way. Called Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, it stars fan favorites Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington as they team up to rescue the Saints' boss from the clutches of Satan.
After a Ouija board game gone wrong, the leader of the Saints is kidnapped and taken to hell in order to marry the devil's daughter, Jezebel. Johnny and Kinzie descend into hell to save their boss – with the help of some familiar faces, like Saints Row 2's Dane Vogel. Players can freely swap control between either Johnny or Kinzie, or team up together in online co-op.
The expansion features a new environment to explore, new weapons, and plenty of surprises for fans of the series. It releases on January 27 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, 360, and PC.
Our TakeI actually had a chance to play some of Gat Out of Hell during a trip to Volition's studio, and I think it is a fun idea for an expansion. Since basically anything goes in the Saints Row universe, the potential for crazy moments and bizarre weapons is tantalizing.
