The Saints Row IV wiki last edited by Yummylee on 11/24/14 11:29AM View full history

Overview

You've just been promoted to the President of the United States.

Saints Row IV is an over-the-top open-world action-adventure game developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 20, 2013. It is the fourth entry in the Saints Row franchise and the first to be published by Deep Silver (after acquiring it from the bankrupted THQ). It was originally in development as a stand-alone expansion to Saints Row: The Third (titled Saints Row: The Third - Enter the Dominatrix), but was rolled in to the already-in-development Saints Row IV.

Set five years after Saints Row: The Third, players control the leader of the Third Street Saints. After taking the Saints from an ordinary street gang to an international multi-media empire throughout the series, the Boss is now elected the President of the United States (with his comrades and former adversaries as his administration). When aliens (known as the Zin and led by Emperor Zinyak) invade Earth, the Saints are kidnapped and transported into a digital recreation of Steelport (known as "Simulation 31") Now it's up to the Boss, who now has access to crazy weapons and insane superpowers, to escape the simulation and take down the Zin Empire.

Enter the Dominatrix

The DLC reveals what the Saints Row 3 expansion was going to be. One year after the events in Saints Row: The Third, the Zin Empire and Zinyak attack Steelport. At the time, Pierce is now the Mayor. The Boss defeats Zinyak in Zinyak's ship. After Zinyak's death, the Zin AI known as the Dominatrix takes the people to a simulation of Steelport. In the simulation, The Boss found data clusters which give The Boss superpowers. The Boss rescues his/her friends from the Dominatrix including Zimos and Donnie. The Dominatrix later summons Paul (A giant Saints Flow can) who is about to wreak havoc on the simulation. The Saints created a space ship in which they go inside Paul and destroy his brain. After they defeated Paul and the Dominatrix, the Raptors led the Saints out of their simulation and into the Raptor's homeplanet where King Cirano lives.

Gameplay

Inflate-o-ray in action

The newest addition of super powers significantly changes the way players move and behave in the open world of virtual Steelport. Cars and aircraft soon become worthless, as the player is able to run, jump and glide with incredible speed and agility. These super powers are upgraded using Clusters that players find around Steelport, of which there are over 1200.

Throughout the simulation are alien checkpoints and bases to be destroyed as well as new and returning minigames to facilitate further destruction. New weapons are available including those of the alien variety.

Players are able to leave the simulation via glowing doors around Steelport to return to the real world, where the Saints have established their "crib" in a space ship. Here, the player can converse with their homies and more.
