The new Saints Row IV standalone expansion, Gat Out of Hell, has been brought forward by one whole week for PS4 & PS3, with no word on the Xbox or PC versions being brought forward. Saints Row Gat Out of Hell will now be available from January the 23rd 2015 and will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC from the 30th of January (Europe). Deep Silver’s Saints Row IV will also be getting the next-gen treatment, as the PS4 and Xbox One will see the Saints Row 4: Re-Elected bundle out on the same day, which includes the original Saints Row 4 and the new expansion.
The information comes from Volition who posted on the EU Playstation Blog. Also featured on the blog is a brand new ‘Seven Deadly Weapons’ trailer, aptly named because players have seven weapon slots to equip. The trailer showcases some of the more bizarre yet deadly weapons featured in the game that are inspired by the seven deadly sins Envy, Pride, Greed, Lust, Sloth, Wrath, and Gluttony.
It was a happy accident for us that the weapon inventory wheel in Saints Row games has seven slots so we decided to pair one sin per slot: Melee, Pistol, SMG, Shotgun, Rifle, Explosive, and Special. This means players may have all Seven Deadly Weapons in their load-out at a time! Collecting each weapon will not be easy, as each one has a unique and fun way of being obtained.
Here is the latest ‘Seven Deadly Weapons’ trailer and below is a detailed break down of the weapons, taken directly from Volition’s post on the Playstation Blog.
Our melee slot weapon, Uriel’s Edge, is the Envy of Hell. This enormous fiery sword has a slash attack to cut down nearby targets and also can hurl devastating fireballs to destroy flying targets at range. It is rumored to be protected by the Arch-Dukes who rule over the five islands of the city of New Hades.
Full of Pride, our pistol, Gallows Dodger, boasts of past and present murderous adventures when used. Shooting targets builds him into a frenzy, resulting in an explosive overkill mode. Getting revenge against a past enemy of the Saints can gain this weapon’s favour.
Diamond Sting in the SMG weapon slot rapidly pelts targets with diamonds, causing them to drop additional Wages of Sin. This ability will help players max their upgrades in no time! This weapon can be owned by a master with a strong commitment to Greed.
Boom Chicka is our shotgun weapon which shoots a spread of bullets laced with perfume designed to intoxicate enemies with Lust for their attacker. Upon being hit, targets will blindly frolic closer to the deadly spray of bullets! This weapon is treasured by a notorious ally.
The epitome of Sloth, the rifle slot Armchair-A-Geddon allows the user to destroy targets from the comfort of a movable armchair. Equipped with dual mini-guns on the arm rests and the ability to launch anti-aircraft missiles upon recline – this weapon overwhelms targets. This weapon awaits a lazy master.
The explosive weapon, Ark of the Covenant, sucks nearby target’s souls into the weapon and then unleashes them at range. Once fired, the Wrathfulsoul splits into multiple directions to attack additional nearby targets. This weapon must be taken from Satan’s top lieutenant of Hell – a worthy foe fans of the series will recognise.
Last Supper from the special weapon slot can be used to spray tasty demonic frosting on a target, causing everyone nearby to Gluttonouslyravage the target to death. For faster results, an explosive mode can send a glob of frosting can be used to instantly coat multiple targets. This weapon can be found when trying to satisfy the need for munchies
