Saints Row 4 trailer celebrates Independence Day (and ID4)

Given that Saints Row IV stars the President of the United States, a trailer celebrating Independence Day was inevitable. But oh, as it's also about an alien invasion, it's also riffing on that other Independence Day, with a stirring speech so powerful even I, a Queen-fearing lobsterback, shed a tear of pride for our little country all growed up.

But oh, as it's also about an alien invasion, it's also riffing on that other Independence Day, with a speech so stirring even I, a Queen-fearing lobsterback, shed a tear of pride for our little country all growed up.

Saints Row IV comes to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 20, developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver. Pre-ordering gets you some of the patriotic wonders shown in the trailer: an Uncle Sam outfit, a jet with a bald eagle paintjob, and a gun which combines dubstep, flamethrower and rocket launcher under the name 'Merica.

Check the E3 walkthrough if you want actual gameplay, but watch on to love America:

      I loved Saints Row 3.. but all the trailers I've seen of Saints Row 4 don't look like a Saints Row game. It looks like a 3rd person linear story shooter. Where's the video clips of open world roaming?

        Haha you haven't really watched enough then. There is a bunch out there that show the same type of go around the city and mess up gangs, do some instanced activities etc etc, but now with super powers!

          Tis true! I've only seen one or two, guess I just missed the gameplay videos - I'll play it regardless, SR3 (and Genki Super Ethical Reality Climax "Murder Time Fun Time") was some of the most fun I'd had in a long time.

        Saints Row story missions have always been linear. That kind of stuff is used in short trailers rather than open-world roaming clips because it's flashier and works in short bursts.

          Someone should start a Kickstarter to bring back adventure games!

      Game story looks like The Matrix, ID4, and Saint's Row 3 combined.

        Each game is the next stage in the story of the Saints and The Boss. However, you don't have to have played the previous games to enjoy a given entry.

        YOU should buy SR3 during the steam sale and play it.
