Saints Row 4 arrives faster than a speeding bullet in August

THQ may be dead, but if there’s one property from the defunct publisher that is alive and well since that untimely demise, it’s Saints Row. We’ve already seen three games set in a universe of increasing lunacy and dildo-based weaponry. And thanks to Deep Silver purchasing that franchise, it looks like we’ll get to see the fourth game kick things up a notch in August.

August 20 is when Saints Row 4 arrives, and it looks like players will get to play around with super powers in this latest chapter of the psychotic purple series. According to the original press release from the expansion pack for the third game under THQ, which I’m only including because it set my Darryn-senses on fire:

“Faster than a speeding cyber jetbike, more powerful than a roided-out Luchadore, able to leap flying aircraft carriers in a single bound… That’s the power you’ll find inside the Dominatrix. Use it for good. Use it for evil. Use it for whatever you want. As always in Saints Row, it’s up to you,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc. “With a franchise with more than 11 million units shipped globally, it’s incredibly gratifying to have the flexibility to give Saints Row fans the features they want most.” He later added, “Freaking super powers.”

This checks all those boxes. I’ve always loved the Saints Row games, much more than the recent Grand Theft Auto games of this generation. That crazy attitude, disregard for anything resembling normal and abundant levels of purple have made for some fun gameplay over the last couple of years.

And you haven’t experienced life until you’ve managed to kill a swarm of zombies with a gigantic dildo-bat that wiggles perhaps a tad too much. Saints Row 4 looks to be just as mental, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it in August.

The game that is. Not the Penetrator.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
