'Saints Row 4' announced, gets teaser trailer

Deep Silver have announced Saints Row 4 with a teaser trailer and release date.

Saints Row 4 will continue the story of the Third Street Saints, who now run the "free world" mainly because the gang's boss has been elected President of the United States. However, things don't go according to plan when an alien race invades Earth. The Saints are then transported to another dimension.

In this other dimension the Saints have super powers and use them to fight the alien race and defeat the alien boss known as Zinyak, who maintains mental control over the world.

Koch Media, Deep Silver's parent company, purchased the Volition franchise from THQ during the former publisher's whole sale sell off.

Deep Silver stated that Saints Row 4 will be available on August 20 in the US and August 23 in Europe.
