Many of us expected to see Saints Row 5 but Volition announced something completely different at PAX Prime – namely, a standalone expansion in the franchise called Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, which lets you play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington (both which can be switched in single-player or played together in co-op) to travel to Hell, battle Satan and rescue the Boss of the Third Street Saints.
Keeping up with the Hell theme, you’ll be able to gain several new powers including demon wings. There will also be weapons based on the seven deadly sins, including an armchair with mini-guns and rockets that’s supposed to represent Sloth. Despite only being 6 to 8 hours, you’ll still have an open world sandbox with lots of activities and jobs. Did we mention there’s a musical number and cameos from past characters?
Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell will be out on January 27th 2015 for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC. Interestingly, a PS4 and Xbox One version of Saints Row IV called Saints Row IV: Re-Elected will be out on the same day.
