Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell sends the Saints to Hell in 2015
By Michael McWhertor on Aug 29, 2014
Volition's next entry in the Saints Row series is titled Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and sends the franchise to the afterlife in 2015.
According to a trailer that debuted at PAX Prime today, the Saints' Johnny Gat and Kinzie are sucked into Hell via ouija board to battle demons and some "prominent historical figures," ultimately coming face-to-face with Satan. The game features online co-op for two players. Its version of Hell will be about half the size of Saints Row 4's Steel Port, Volition says.
Players will get access to a handful of new weapons in Gat Out of Hell, including the Arm Chairmageddon (a La-Z-Boy recliner with guns), the Energy Caster, a Locust Gun and a weapon that fires a plague of frogs.
Developed by Volition and High Voltage Software, Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is a stand-alone expansion and won't require a copy of Saints Row 4 to play.
Gat Out of Hell will retail individually for $19.95 and will be released on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Jan. 27, 2015. The expansion will also be part of an upcoming re-release of Saints Row 4 called Saints Row 4: Re-Elected for PS4 and Xbox One.
