Saints Row IV has been officially announced for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and will be arriving on August 20, 2013. Here's the official storyline and a list of features that players can expect from the new game.
Looks like Saints row 3.5 to me should have been a next gen title.
I think they've taken "over the top" too far...
I miss the somewhat serious story they had in the first two games. Both of them had a great balance of serious and fun. I was so disappointed by the third because I was anticipating it so much because the Saints series has been my favorite series of this gen so it was a bummer to see how the third turned out. This looks the same as the third and they still are in steelport. I am sorry but that city blows compared to stilwater
Is it just me or did anyone else spot alot of crackdown like gameplay/elements???
@Hammad I read your comment and thought to myself, well, it couldn't get that much over the top from SR3. Then I played the video. In the 30 odd seconds of the trailer I saw: * A man flying into the sky * A robot shooting lasers * Huge alien ships * A man punching another man made out of water * A naked pink or purple man walking in a nightclub * A quad bike covered in lasers * People getting punched into the stratosphere * A bunny rabbit doing the robot dance * An actual robot doing the robot * A mech shooting lasers * People dancing dressed as punks * A scantily clad women dancing.....upside down * A man dancing....dressed as a hot dog * A giant monster truck....which probably turns into a robot * A purple version of the Flash * And a giant enery drink can smashing up buildings. I think you may be right.
It REALLy sucks it won't be making it to the Wii U http://127.0.0.1:1886/start... Deep Silver hadn't given a statement saying why just yet. This is not looking good for Nintendo or its fans.
This game looks stupid.
It's looks even crazier then 3
Ps4 has spoiled me i cant play anything infererior
You have a Ps4?
You have freaking super powers now?? O_O
A the 0:52 mark of the video, he throws a car like Cole from the Infamous series SMH. They also said "The saga that changed all the rules and blew the minds of generation"... Seriously? Too much ego maybe?
Its a hyperbole. If you think they're being serious, you know very little about SR games.
I love Saints Row but they need more development time. and This should have become a big expansion for Saints Row 3 instead of it originally being DLC bt now its a full game.
this game got nothing on GTA5
You're right it doesn't but then again it was never meant to. They can both co exist. GTA was always a little more grounded which is fun but Saints row was always over the top which is fun as well. I'm definitely getting both.
They're SO different that you really can't compare. Maybe the original Saints Row, or Saints Row 2 could be compared to the PS2 era GTA games. But 3 and 4 or so remarkably different from any GTA, that this "rivarly" between the games/fans, shouldn't even exist anymore. They are in their own realm now with the over-the-topness of Saints Row. Rockstar has taken the realistic route with GTA, and that's perfectly fine also. We can have both types of games exist.
Sure it does, you play the whole game with a friend.
they're forcing this game out to ride on the GTA V hype lol lol lol
It's probably already got a leg up over GTA5 for me. Rockstar will try to shove a story about how the main character is a sympathetic anti-hero in it's cutscenes, like how Niko complains about how it's hard to see good in the world after the 'horrors' he's seen. Then when you walk outside you'll immediately steal a car and run over 13 pedestrians, then get out and shoot some people with shotguns while Niko yells insults and profanities at them. Saints Row at least knows it's stupid and just rolls with it. Rockstar keeps you crazy and sociopathic in the gameplay, and then tries to portray your character as someone completely different in the cutscenes, and it's jarring as all hell.
Same thing with tomb raider she feels sad about killing a deer and killing her first enemy but then goes on a Gears of war style kill Fest the rest of the game.
This game has an ENTIRELY different tone than GTA. Whats the point of pitting them against each other?. I'm getting both. If others want to limit themselves and only get one, thats they're problem.
This better be worth it, as it was going to be DLC.
EVERYTHING LOOKS THE SAME AS SR3 :S:S The graphics , the city , road texture , everything
You make that sound bad though? SR3 was amazing, it was the most fun I've had in a game in a while. Its no different than COD annually with minimal changes. This game will sell to the exact people they want it to, those who enjoyed SR3.
Sorry but SR2 was so much better of a game than the third was
They really should have gone next gen and got the jump on GTA.
They have literally changed everything from the original.. I mean yeah saints row was fun take on a gang war story...now it has alien invasions and super powers. I won't be buying as it looks too stupid
the instead of saints row think of it as a superhero/supervillian game the only other game was that mmo with the dc superheroes, now you get to become your very own superhero. i hope they will take some of the japenease style of how hair is done, super saiyan, if they allow you to wield wind or force push type powers. become a jedi, they may or may not have lightsabers i wouldn't put it past them, i wonder if they will put in ocular powers **Cough**sharingan**cough**cou gh** or laser eyes.
I can't wait till this comes out. I had a blast playing Saints row the third and now i can fly. I'll buy it. And yes it all looks like saints row 3 we get it. However they might not charge full price for it. It may get a lower price tag you never know.
the trailer was terrible. I hated the constant word pop up. saints row just feels so rushed.
Yeah it was a little annoying lol
Looks exactly like SR3. They might aswell release it as SR3 DLC.
It originally was meant to be dlc
R.I.P Saints Row.
yeah think i'm gonna pass on this.
I prefer SR over GTA, but I buy both and enjoy both! edit! Speaking to the hypocrites about the game looking like SR3. You didn't bitch when COD and just about everyone else done it. At least this isn't every year.
How in the hell do you know who said what? Anyway.... I don't like that this was originally dlc and now it's a full game. I also don't like that the graphics are virtually identical to it's predecessor. But hey, it worked for Majora's Mask.
Look at all the post above mine. It's one thing to bitch about a bad game. But if a company puts out a good quality game, you have two choices, buy it or don't.
to be precise, I preferred all SR series over GTA4 only , previous GTA are gems and almost unbeatable.
What a coward move. Edit and COMPLETELY change *your* comment so I look stupid. Wow.... Just proves that I was correct, and that you are wrong.
Uhm, I done the edit before you posted your first comment. You need to stop smoking what ever you smokin or start taking Namenda.
That reminds me, I haven't finished Prototype 2 yet!!
Why are you guys passing on this? I thought you liked fun.
So basically it's gone from a generally decent GTA clone to an over the top, trying too hard to differentiate from GTA GTA clone. I agree with the general consensus in these comments, it should have been DLC for the 3rd game.
this series has lost its magic
Saints Row 2 was my favorite. They ruined the series with III.
this game represents everything i hate about video games.
Jesus, nothing makes you people happy. Just whine bitch moan and complain about everything. Too much AC, CoD, BF and so on. There are people who like these games and will willingy buy them. Gaming has become all about this is better than that, this company did this or that. If you have a problem with a game, don't freaking play ir or read about. Having an actual discussion on this website is damn near impossible. / rant over
Or you could just state your opinion without acting like a baby. Most people have been cool. You just have a problen with them not being blown away initially with what was originally an expansion for SR3.
You obviously didn't read my comment very well. I don't have a problem with people not being "blown away" by the game. I never stated if I was even excited for the game. And I acted like a baby how? I'm just tired of seeing the same comments every day about people complaining about almost every game there is, rather than having a discussion. Your comment just adds to that view of the site.
Being a game fans doesnt mean we have to wag our tails at everything thrown at us and be forcefully happy. People complaisn more and more ? Blame the gall and constant pushes and experiment of publishers about what will be commonly accepted . Dosnt mean that we all grow jaded , moreso that publishers grow more and more greedy and cynical Here in this instance the game doesnt look like a real sequel , thus far , merely a collection of dlcs and extension slapped together with a number . Should it surprise you that not everyone will meet it with praises ?
this should have been an expansion. it feels soooo rushed
and kind of boring.
Well I won't be buying this junk. I was seriously hoping they would go back to the series roots and it's pretty damn clear they did the exact opposite. It's the fact that SR3 and this game are supposed to be part of the Saint's Row series that bothers me since they are NOTHING like the first two games. SR2 had a good balance of everything, all it needed(and didn't really) was better graphics. SR3...terrible, nonsense story and TOO much stupid and now this goes even farther. I would have probably not been as disappointed with SR3 and this game if they took all references and relations to the Saint's Row series out and named the games something else, anything else...Super Wacky Silly Fun Land. Even then SR3 would still not be very good content-wise, but that's a different discussion. The point is that SR2 is still in need of proper continuation, if that's not going to happen, kill the series and name this crap something else. Regardless, they won't get my money right out of the gate. I MIGHT Redbox it for a night or pick it up on Amazon used for cheap. New? No way.
I played SR2 so much. I loved that game. I just beat the third once once and never played it again because it was such a disappointment
Man so disappointing. What happened Volition? The first two games had so much charm and was so fun. Now the last two installments are way over the top which makes the series seem like it will never be somewhat serious anymore
This looks terrible.... Why didn't they just reboot it Same City, same textures, same graphics It's basically a DLC expansion
Games like this is why i love gamefly! :)
Good god people, stop complaining! Wait until you get a chance to actually, you know... PLAY THE GAME. The game could be amazing fun, and you're just writing it off because it looks similar to the 3rd, or is coming out too soon?
It's N4G, shouldn't expect anything less from the majority of comments here.
Writing it off because SR3 was too silly, and this is clearly even worse in that department.
Seems I'm in the minority of people who have just completely forgotten about GTA V. Bring it on Volition, can't wait for this game!
The graphics take me away from this game. I can't help but looking at it and thinking "damn, GTA IV looks better than this". Saints Row 4 doesn't look any different from Saints Row 3, I have a feeling this will flop because of the soon to be released GTA V.
What the hell is going on here? Tron bikes? Crackdown super powers? Hrrrmm....
This looks more like an expansion to me. Same character models, engine, graphics, map entities, etc. One and a half year development? Kind of concerning. Looks more like 3.5 to me.
Rockstar puts more work into crafting one block of their hyper-detailed cities than Volition puts into their entire games. And now they are desperately rushing this sequel out to try to stay relevant before GTA V releases. I have a feeling this SR will score in the low 70s or below on Metacritic and will sell nowhere near the past 2 games' numbers.
