PAX Prime has only just begun and Volition and Deep Silver have announced a brand new entry in the Saints Row series. Instead of a massive Saints Row V news bomb, the developer announced a standalone expansion for Saints Row IV.
It’s called Saints Row: Gat out of Hell, and it’s coming to not only the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms, but the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well. Players will fill the shoes of franchise favorite Johnny Gat as he quests to Hell in order to save the president from abduction. He’s been taken by the devil, obviously.
Seeing as it’s a standalone, you will not need a copy of Saints Row IV to play.
In addition to the fresh trailer above, we have a few screenshots for you to look over and the full press release below.
The release date for Gat out of Hell currently sits on Jan. 27, 2015. No word has been given regarding pricing, but it’ll be interesting to see how Deep Silver and Volition tackle that point while branding this an “expansion.”
We’ll have more as it comes.
