Saints Row 4 Independence Day trailer combines Churchill and anal probes like never before


Saints Row 4 is out now; here’s our Saints Row 4 review.

I imagine that, when composing his infamous 4 June ‘We Shall Fight Them on the Beaches’ speech, prime minister Winston Churchill didn’t consider how his words could be adapted into rhetoric against an invading force of anal probing-aliens. That’s pure speculation, of course. He could have been entirely down with the prospect. He was an avid pong player, after all. 

See how Volition evoke 1940s wartime in the latest Saints Row 4 trailer.

It does all look like a lot of irreverent fun, doesn’t it? I’ve not had a chance to play any test builds of Saints Row 4 but Steve enjoyed it muchly during his latest hands-on. That’s with the caveat that the game’s content may be stretched a little thin.

The trailer shows off as varied a mix of play as was found in the excellent Saints Row The Third, with hints at Mass Effect parody, spaceship battles, super powers, mega, presidential weaponry, and text-based adventure gaming. That’s all good news.

Saints Row 4 is due out for release on 23 august.
