The lights are on
The upwardly mobile Third Street Saints have conquered Stilwater and Steelport, but apparently they had their eyes set on the highest office this whole time. In Saints Row IV, the gang takes over Washington D.C. and gets superpowers. At this point, why even bother arguing?
According to new publisher Deep Silver, the game starts with the Saints' leader elected president of the United States. Then there's an alien invasion, and the player is thrust into an alien-created simulation of Steelport. In that world, characters can use alien tech against their aggressors and even gain access to superpowers. You can see some of those in action in the announce trailer below, including flight, power dives, the ability to freeze opponents, and more.
The game is due out on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 20.

I loved Saints Row 2 and am biding my time for the third. This trailer put a smile on my face though.
Really enjoyed The Third, so I'm looking forward to playing this already.
Lets see if this can top the S&M mission in *** up ness.
oh god yes! Please let there by zombie voice again. Saints Row 3 is one of the most entertaining games I have ever played
I will admit, each game in the Saint's Row franchise has gotten better and even more insane, so this newest entry looks to fit the bill perfectly (have played all three games so far). Hopefully Deep Silver can do a fantastic job with the Saint's franchise in the post-THQ era.
looks really fun.
