The lights are on
Dubstep has been weaponized in Saints Row IV's world. Players can harness the genre's bass-heavy clicks and squawks for the forces of good using the game's Dubstep Gun. Publisher Deep Silver has revealed that it's taking the weapon out of the virtual space via the Saints Row IV: The Super Dangerous Wub Wub Edition.
The $99.99 collector's edition includes a 12" replica of the game (with sound effects), an 8" Johnny Gat Memorial Statue, and a pocket-sized version of the game's Dubstep Doomsday Button. That's in addition to the in-game extras included in the previously announced Commander in Chief edition.
If you haven't been following the game, this seven-minute developer walkthrough video does a great job of getting players up to speed. The Saints are now in the White House, aliens have invaded Earth, and your character now has superpowers. It's a lot to absorb.
Look for the game on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 20.
