Go To Hell With The Saints Row Gang This January

Volition have revealed the next entry in the Saints Row series and it is not Saint’s Row V. The new title, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, finds the crew being sucked in to the afterlife whilst dabbling with an Ouija board.

A number of new weapons are promised including a La-Z-Boy called the Arm Chairmageddon, plus guns that fire plagues of locusts and frogs. One the downside the map is about half the size of Steelport in Saints Row IV, but the game will only cost $19.95.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell will launch on January 27th 2015 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, 2015.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected has also been announced for PS4 and Xbox One. This version features all the DLC previously released and Gat Out of Hell, plus slightly tweaked graphics. I thought the last Saint’s Row looked pretty awful on PS3 so they’re going to have do more than slightly tweak the graphics to get me to buy it.

  1. So Infamous First Light style? I’m digging it, honestly I feel more game devs should do this kind of standalone DLC/game thing.

  2. I wouldn’t want to play the whole thing again, but a cheap standalone expansion? In hell? With a deadly armchair? On the PS4?

    Just 2 problems I can see. First, they’d better not try any crap with only bundling it with the full SR4 for the PS4 and only having the standalone option for the PS3. That’d suck. In a bad way.

    And second, 5 months away. Grrr.

  3. I’m not sure why, possibly because of other game releases at the time, but i haven’t played SR4 yet so i guess that’s one HD remaster i might be interested in. The new game sounds more promising though, nice price too.

  4. More han slightly tweeked graphics? how about all the DLC and Gat out of Hell you just mentioned? Just sayin’

  5. Glad I never got it on Ps3. SR4 was lost in my cross-gen hype. As well as all the GTA hype. I’m now ready for this. Bring it on.

    • Saint’s Row is obviously better than GTA because (a) giant purple “weapons”, (b) sex with robots, (c) running around naked, with the aforementioned giant purple “weapons”, 5 minutes after having been a woman (possibly just to get a trophy) is about 1.7 million times better than a nice game of golf.

      And while I’m at it… (d), (e), (f) and (g)… Professor Genki.

      Probably spent more time with SR4 than GTA5.

      • Yep I agree. Enjoyed SR4 much more than GTA5. I remember the old GTA’s being a bit more crazy like SR (before it went all serious and realistic). Sometimes it’s just nice to run up the side of a skyscraper, fly down to a group of pedestrians, attack them with a giant penis and suck them into a black hole.

      • I do have to say I got bored of GTA V in less than a month (I think it may have been 2 weeks). I don’t remember getting bored of SR3 at all. So I’m not going to argue. I’ll be day 1 on this ;-)

      • The problem with GTA5 is that it completely failed to do what SR3 and 4 did. It’s still taking itself a bit too seriously. Saint’s Row has obviously decided it just doesn’t care how stupid things get.

        There are things in both games that are just so amazingly wrong. In Saint’s Row, it’s almost as if the developers were thinking “This is just wrong. But funny. So we don’t care. And we can balance out anything potentially offensive by putting other things that are equally wrong in. Offend everyone and it’s all good”

        GTA5 has some bits that are equally wrong, but they’re done in a somewhat more serious way. The torture scene? Rather than go completely over the top with it, they made it very unpleasant and then tried a “Torture is bad, m’kay?” thing afterwards. Which really didn’t work.

        Obviously GTA5 is an incredibly impressive technical feat, and I’m sure it’ll be even more impressive on the PS4. But it leaves you feeling a bit dirty afterwards, while you can do all sorts of stuff in SR and just have fun.

        Mind you, I dread to think what Trevor would do if GTA5 featured giant purple “weapons”. That’d end in disturbing ways.

      • how was GTA V serious ? if anything it wasn’t serious enough. there were aliens, nightmares from drugs mission, they ruined the car handling by making it more like Saints row and all of the endings were Saints row type ending choices. you obviously played a different copy than me. i can understand that GTAIV was serious but V ? your problem is comparing it to Saints row. no game can ever get that stupid and over the top. even the GTA games on PS2 weren’t that over the top.

  6. I’d play it again on PS4 but damn those challenges were a chore. I still haven’t finished my 40 hours in Steelport challenge on the PS3 – last one I need for the platinum – because I finished everything there was to do in 28 hours (including the dlc) and I can’t justify leaving my PS3 running for 12 hours just to get a trophy. Annoying.

    I wonder how much they’ll improve the graphics for the next/current gen versions? I thought it looked pretty awful of the PS3 (almost PS2 quality) but that was all part of it’s charm… so bad, it’s good.
