Saints Row IV
is not due until August, but Deep Silver announces a
Saints Row IV Commander in Chief Edition
, a special version of the
"open-world and-other-PR-words" sequel that's offered as an incentive for
preordering. Here's word on the bonuses this entails, including an Uncle Sam
outfit in case you don't like being noticed, oddly, available in all
Larkspur, Calif., - April 22, 2013 – All hail POTUS as Deep
Silver announces today that the Commander in Chief Edition for the upcoming
Saints Row IV™ is available as a free upgrade to pre-orders at major
freedom-retailers across North America. In this ball-busting, open-world
and-other-PR-words installment in the Saints Row franchise, developer Volition
continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the
highest level – the leaders of the free world.
But the leaders of the free world are under attack from an alien invasion in the
land of the free, and it’s up to you and your gang to save the world,
Saints-style. To help you combat the alien terrorists you will encounter, the
Commander in Chief Edition is a free upgrade for all pre-orders at participating
retailers and comes fully loaded with a Screaming Eagle that fires rockets out
of its talons and can invoke the “Sonic Scream” attack, leaving your enemies
dazed, confused and likely scarred for life.
Additionally, if you’re going to save the world you should look good while doing
it, which is why the Commander in Chief gives you a limited-edition Uncle Sam
uniform, made in the US of good ‘ol A (apple pie not included.) And since you
need the best [read: most ridiculously overpowered weapons ever conceived]
fighting tools available, Volition and Deep Silver are giving you a stimulus
package, “'Merica”, full of incredibly astonishing firepower: flamethrowers,
ultra-powered dub step guns and rocket launchers are yours for the taking. Crown
thy good with brotherhood, indeed.
The Commander in Chief Edition is priced at $59.99 (console) and $49.99 (PC).
The Commander in Chief Edition will be available globally.
