Saints Row 4: Game of the Century Edition is real, US release not decided

First spotted on Amazon, this re-release will predictably feature all of the game's DLC, including the "Enter the Dominatrix" expansion, the "How the Saints Save Christmas" mission pack, and more.

Zeus: Saints Row dev's canceled post-apocalyptic open-world game

Zeus: Saints Row dev's canceled post-apocalyptic open-world game

Volition was working on a post-apocalyptic open-world game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 codenamed "Zeus." It was originally going to be a modern Western set in a post-apocalyptic Rio, starring a hardened gunslinger exploring a lawless and broken city. It would have been a mostly on-foot game, and would have been a drastic departure for the studio best known for the Saints Row franchise.

Saints Row was originally called 'Bling Bling'

Saints Row was originally called 'Bling Bling'

Saints Row wasn't always called that, Volition senior producer Greg Donovan revealed at a talk at Game Developers Conference. When presented with the opportunity to make an original IP, Volition presented "Bling Bling" to THQ--a publisher that was largely focused on making licensed kids games.

"Bling Bling is a third person action game about style, music, gangs, and guns... It is the game equivalent of a gangster rap music video," the pitch said.

Actor Jay Mohr lending voice to 'new Saints Row'

Oh, actors, never change. Be it a plot twist or unannounced game, we can always count on you to spill some fresh beans. The latest such instance seems to come from actor and video game fan Jay Mohr, who says he's working on a Saints Row game. Oops!

Saints Row 4 'Element of Destruction' DLC adds new superpowers

So, there's a new Saints Row 4 DLC pack available today. It adds new superpowers to the game. We were going to describe them to you, but the crazed rant of Deep Silver PR made it impossible to decipher what's going on. Here, why don't you try to figure it out?

Saints Row 4 DLC promises to 'Save Christmas' on December 11

On December 11th, Volition will release a new holiday-themed expansion for their open world game: "How the Saints Save Christmas." The DLC will have Santa trapped inside the simulation. "Can the Saints help the boss discover the true meaning of the season in time? A holiday classic for the whole family," publisher Deep Silver notes.

GAT 5 released for free on PC (psst, it's SR4 DLC)

GAT 5 released for free on PC (psst, it's SR4 DLC)

Saints Row has always enjoyed tweaking the nose of the series which inspired it, so of course it couldn't ignore Grand Theft Auto V. On the day GTA 5 launches for consoles, Deep Silver has released GAT V on PC, for free today only. That's Johnny Gat, mind, in a small piece of Saints Row IV DLC adding extra guns (he's so fond of his guns, that man) and Gat costumes.

Saints Row 4 review: suped up send-off

Saints Row 4 review: suped up send-off

The trajectory of Saints Row has been watching your player character, "The Boss," fail upwards. He (or she) is not particularly clever or skilled at anything besides causing havoc, but has ended every game at a higher level of power and influence.

In Saints Row 4, The Boss has now risen to the level of President of the United States, and of course, it's not going particularly well. The presidential premise seems to fall by the wayside once aliens invade and trap humans in a virtual prison, but I don't think it was just a silly throw-away idea. It pronounces upfront that your character is actually kind of a boorish jerk. This is an ensemble production, and trouble follows when the Boss forgets that he needs the Saints more than they need him.

Saints Row 4 character creator released

Saints Row 4 character creator released

Yes, yes, the murder and mayhem of Saints Row IV are fun and all, but aren't they essentially just window dressing for a game of dress-up? Now we can have a head-start on making pretty pretty Presidents, as publisher Deep Silver has released its character creator as the free standalone 'Inauguration Station' on PC and Xbox 360. Sorry, PlayStationeers, you may need to wait a week.

Saints Row 4 drugs block Australia from global co-op

Saints Row 4 drugs block Australia from global co-op

Poor Australians. Not only do they live in a land purpose-built to murder them, they still struggle with video game censorship--even after adding an adults-only rating. Volition's open-world murder simulator Saints Row IV has finally jumped through enough hoops to be approved for an Australian release, but the changes mean they won't be able to play co-op with people in other regions.

Saints Row 4 producer 'didn't appreciate' THQ's focus on porn stars

Saints Row is known for its over-the-top and sometimes sexual humor. But it went a bit over the line, according to Saints Row 4 associate producer Kate Nelson. THQ's focus on porn stars like Tera Patrick in Saints Row 2 and Penthouse Pets in Saints Row 3 missed the point of the humorous tone.
