'Saints Row IV' Developer Diary Lays Out The Alien Invasion Plan


Oh yeah, "Saints Row IV" totally has President Camacho in it.

This new developer's diary for the open world action game takes a look at the story details as the developer and its brawniest voice actor look back on some of the craziness that's about to hit the Saints.

This video gives you the lowdown on why your character gets to have superpowers in "Saints Row IV," after your character, the President of the United States, is placed in a virtual prison by alien invaders. Of course, you're not going to take that laying down so there will be violence! And nudity! And violent nudity!

From the official synopsis:

In Saints Row IV, 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 IV 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 installment of Saints Row yet.

"Saints Row IV" will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on August 20.
