BackgroundFrom the drug house to the White House, the Saints Row franchise is about to take an Out-of-this-World turn!
Set five years after the events of Saints Row: The Third, the leader of the Third Street Saints is now the President of the United States, with other members of the Third Street Saints serving on the President's Cabinet.
A massive alien invasion from the Zin Empire besets the Nation's Capital, with alien warlord Zinyak in command of the Aliens. He manages to capture the cabinet members and the President, plunging them into a computer simulation version of Steelport. Their only means of escape, thus stopping Zinyak and saving Earth: the help of computer hacking specialist Kinzie Kensington, and Superhuman powers new to the series.
Game PlayThe classic gameplay of the Saints Row franchise is on full display here. While generally a Third-Person Shooter in an Open World, there are a mix of primary and secondary quests, along with a number of collectibles to find. Along with the usual mechanics of stealing driving and customizing vehicles, plus purchasing weapons, upgrades and clothing, comes a completely new wrinkle to the formula: Superhuman powers.
Amongst these Superhuman powers, they include firing of a variety of paranormal projectiles and flight, amongst other things. These can also be upgraded as well, further increasing the possibilities of gameplay!
If you thought Saints Row had gone over-the-top with its ball-busting gameplay, think again! AND those possibilities will appear on Next-Gen in early 2015!
