With the release of Saints Row IV on the horizon, Deep Silver plans to include an upgrade with pre-orders known as Commander in Chief Edition. If you’re looking to add to your experience of Saints Row IV, then this pre-order bonus is sure to satisfy you. As your gang combats an alien invasion, you will be equipped with a patriotic weapon known as a screaming eagle that shoots rockets from its talons. The eagle’s signature attack is “sonic scream”, causing your enemies to be disoriented. That’s not all though, as the upgrade also comes with an Uncle Sam uniform. True to the upgrade’s all American theme, you get what is known as the stimulus package “merica”; equipping you with weapons like rocket launchers, flame-throwers, and dubstep guns.
What makes Saints Row IV‘s patriotic theme particularly significant is the premise behind the game itself, the leader of the Saints has been elected president of the United States. Shortly after, an alien invasion threatens the world, and it’s up to the Saints to save humanity. You’ll fight your way through a simulation that the aliens have created for you and the entire human race.
If you plan to beat the alien leader Zinyak, then you will need to cleverly utilize both super human abilities and alien technology. Players are treated to a unique set of alien weapons and machinery. You will also get to use a number of different superpowers that will help you on your mission to save humanity from impending doom. There are some interesting abilities that you have at your disposal, from telekinesis, to super speed, and leaping buildings within a single bound.
Saints Row IV will be released in North America and Latin America August 20th, 2013, and will be released worldwide August 23rd. The Commander in Chief upgrade will be available globally for free, while the price for Saints Row IV will be $59.99 on consoles and $49.99 on PC.
