Saints Row 4: United Saints of Americaby Daniel Ryan
Saints Row 4 takes you from the Crack House to the White House
Deep Silver have announced that Saints Row 4, the ball-busting next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is starting a party in your pants with its token crude sense of humour and you’re invited.
In the next open-world instalment of Saints Row, Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row 4, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States.
But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
Saints Row 4 lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane instalment of Saints Row yet.
Save the world, Saints Style.
Developed by Volition, Saints Row 4 will launch on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, internationally.

This news of Saints Row 4 comes after big delays of Enter The Dominatrix which had been in a kind of development hell.
Another franchise picked up from the corpse of THQ is the Warhammer 40,000 series. Recently Games Workshop signed a new deal to continue making games.
