'Saints Row IV' (ALL) Sells One Million, Launches DLC Packs - Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 28, 2013 @ 1:28 p.m. PDT

In the next installment of the open-world action game, the Third Street Saints' story continues as their head honcho has been elected to the Presidency of the United States, they are now the leaders of the free world.

But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.

Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.

Save the world, Saints Style.


Saints Row IV has had a breakthrough commercial achievement as more than one million units sold through in its first week of retail availability. In the first days of availability, the PC version of Saints Row IV  more than tripled its first week’s sale numbers over the prior release from THQ, Saints Row: The Third.

“We are incredibly happy of the reception for Saints Row IV as a critical and now a commercial success,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of parent company Koch Media. “The development team at Volition is second-to-none as a driving creative force in the entertainment industry and we are very proud to have them as part of the Deep Silver family.”

Presidential Pack:
Don the façades of two of our most highly-regarded founding fathers or disguise as the two Heads of State who heralded in the new millennium. Choose between four Presidential Masks or wear the classic hairstyle of days gone by with the historical wig.
Show the citizens of Steelport what tradition means with the historical presidential outfit or a female historical costume.

Grass Roots Pack:
The Saints may be known for their flashy clothes and extravagant lifestyle but that doesn’t mean you can't enjoy a wide array of clothing, weapon, and vehicle options, such as this culturally-sensitive pack inspired by America's more remote citizenry.
Beef up your arsenal with an assortment of special Grass Roots Weapons: Decide between a double-barreled shotgun, an assault rifle, or go for the politically approved Plunger Launcher that lets you shut up any opposition quickly!
Also includes two new characteristic Grass Roots outfits and a fancy truck, complete with a pink flamingo!

Both packs are available for $2.99 each.
