Yesterday at PAX, Volition released a brand new trailer for the newest entry in the Saint’s Row series. Gat out of Hell will be a stand alone sequel to the 2013 release Saints Row 4 set to debut January 27, 2015.
After finishing Saints Row 4 last year, I said the only place Volition could take the Saints next was to world domination. I was wrong. We’re headed to Hell with Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington after the protagonist from the first three games is sucked through a portal created by the Devil himself. The insanity that is Saints Row will include new weapons (like the Locust gun that shoots plagues of frogs), pit players against ‘historical figures’, and (hopefully) take us back to the hay days of Saints Row 3.
Gat out of Hell will be released on PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. If you’ve never played Saints Row 4 and you own a PS4 or an Xbox One, hold off on buying this. The expansion will be included in a re-release of Saints Row 4 called Saints Row 4: Re-Elected exclusively for next-gen consoles.
I’m particularly excited to get my hands on this sequel. Johnny Gat has been my favorite character in the long running Saints Row franchise and from the looks of the trailer we’ll be playing as him. Since Kinzie is taking the trip to Hell at his side, perhaps their will be an option to play as her as well. My second favorite character (woman be Crazy) I’m happy to play as either to take on the denizens of hell and save the President.
