They conquered the ‘hood. They conquered the city. They rescued Santa Clause. And they conquered the entire universe. But the party ain’t over for the 3rd City Saints. Johnny Gat has done many a heroic feat during his career. But there is one domain he has not conquered before: the domain of Hell. The real H, E, double-hocky stick and the one evil being that dominates it all. He is Lucifer, Satan, the devil himself. He has never been defeated by any warrior. But come this January, he will be challenged by the supreme lieutenant of the 3rd Street Saints, Johnny Gat. Welcome to Sain’t Row IV: Gat out of hell, a standalone expansion pack to Saint’s Row IV.
Volition released the big news a few moments ago on the PlayStation. Blog. Â The game will feature it’s own unique features, gameplay, and city, completely seperate from SRIV. The goal here is to completely conquer the domain of hell itself, meaning to defeat Satan. With that, a whole new multitude of enemies, foes, and gameplay mechanics will take place. It’s safe to say there will be plenty of nods to games likeÂ Dante’s InfernoÂ (2010) and the legendaryÂ DoomÂ series. Â Â Kate Nelson of Volition has more to elaborate on,
“Â Our brand new city of New Hades features five distinct islands including a barren wasteland of an ancient war, a towering downtown for Hellâ€™s elite, and a crammed slums built for ultimate suffering. This new environment is specifically catered to one of our new supernatural powers: angelic flight! With angelic wings, our Saints will terrorize the ranks of Hellâ€™s armies from ankle-biting imps to massive Arch-Demons.”

Saint’s Row IV was released last year to stellar critical acclaim. it wasn’t easy getting this far, especially as their original home, THQ, collapsed and dissolved. However, Deep Silver bought the franchise, allowed the game to be developed, and the result was a huge success. Following the release ofÂ Saint’s Row IVÂ were two expansion packs:Â Enter the Dominatrix, the original expansion toÂ Saint’s Row The Third (2011), andÂ How the Saints Saved Christmas. As a standalone expansion pack, this means you do not need to own Saint’s Row IV. But then again, you really should own it! Now! We here at Dual Pixels LOVED the game and it’s expansions.
