They've taken on rival gangs and the Ultor Corporation. They've survived missions to Mars and Professor Genki’s Super Ethical Reality Climax. So obviously the only place the Third Street Saints could go next is the Presidency of the United States. Saints Row IV sees the Saints return for their craziest instalment yet as their leader become the leader of the free world. And soon that's not just a clever name as the Saints are the only thing that stand between Earth and the invading Aliens known as the Zin, who transport them to a bizarre simulation of Steelport where the action really knows no limits!
This new alien playground means that you have new alien toys to play with. Saints Row IV introduces even more new weapons to the Saints Row saga, each in-keeping with the tongue-in-cheek, larger-than-life fighting style that has become the series' trademark. For starters there's the Inflat-O-Ray, which will inflate an enemies head to cartoon proportions before exploding with a satisfying pop. Or there's the Dubstep Gun that lets you fire a wobbly wubwub that will start your enemy dancing until they literally can’t dance anymore! There's also the alien mechs, jump-jet powered fighting machines that take you to an arcade-y sub-game where you have to cause as much carnage as you can – and then dance the robot in victory!
