Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell pits the gang against Satan

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell

We were betting on Saints Row V, but Volition’s new project - just announced today at PAX - will not be the fifth entry in the open world criminal-turned-superhero caper. Instead, it’s more DLC for Saints Row IV. 

The good news is Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell it puts lovable psychopath Johnny Gat in the driver’s seat, and sees him take a trick down to Hell with ex-FBI hacker Kinzie in an effort to save the President and leader of the Saints from the clutches of Satan. Big Red wants the Prez to marry his daughter, and this is just how courtship works in Hell. 

With Hell comes a new city: New Hades - an open world with five different islands with with missions, diversions and stuff to blow up.

If you enjoy playing games with friends, check out our ten best co-op PC games for more.

Superpowers return, too, but in an appropriately supernatural flavour, with Gat and Kinzie able to summon demons and fly like an angel. Both Saints are playable, as well, both in single-player and co-op. 

It’s a proper expansion rather than your run of the mill DLC, and you won’t need Saints Row IV to play it, as it’s a standalone. 

Gat Out of Hell is due out on January 27th, 2015.

I don't understand what's with all the GTA clones. I mean they're pretty and everything but the combat feels hollow and doesn't pack a punch plus I don't get sucked in by the story either. Same thing happened with GTA IV and Saints Row 3.

I think we're well past the point where calling Saints Row a GTA clone makes sense. in Saints Row IV, you play superheroes stuck in a Matrix-like virtual world and fight aliens. In every GTA you play criminals doing crimes. The only real common threads now are the satire and the fact that both are open world.

I justify the claim by the similarity of presentation and activities available. First time I started playing SR3 and stole a car from the driveway I felt exactly the same as in GTA. Shooting is very similar, quests, shops etc. the same.

Saints Row went its own way storywise but the core mechanics are so alike that I can't help but feel those two are the same game.

Obviously it's about whether you like to be a "mere" criminal of kill those fore mentioned aliens. For me playing both would be too much of the same genre.
