In case you hadn’t noticed, Grand Theft Auto inspired sandbox franchise Saint’s Row – is bonkers. As GTA has made strides towards maturing, becoming deeper, grittier and more realistic (whilst maintaining trade marked dark humour) – Volition and Deep Silver’s Saint’s Row games have stepped into that vacuum of insanity and really made it their own.
Saint’s Row The Third set the bar high for frantic fun, explosive energy and mind boggling hilarity… however, as this developer diary CLEARLY shows, they have designs on smashing that record into obscurity with upcoming Saint’s Row IV!
As you can see, with a Matrix / Inception style world within a world, it really is shaping up to be a no-holds-barred ride through a game developers dream (and nightmare) scenario. Stay tuned to Twinstick Gaming for more information and full review when the games hits the stores.
Saint’s Row IV is set for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 23rd August, 2013.
