In their latest developer diary for "Saints Row IV," the team at Volition explain how adding superpowers necessitated adding powerful aliens to the latest entry in the franchise.
It's all very sound logic: the developer upped the ante in terms of what your character can do and how he or she can do it. With the stakes being raised to global domination by an alien species, Volition was free to let your character fly and smash up more than your average mask-wearing street gang member.
Volition and publisher Deep Silver also released the following infographic detailing some of the reasons why you might want to play "Saints Row IV." Personally, I think Keith David's dual roles should count as two reasons, but that's just me.
"Saints Row IV" will be out next week on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
