As the Grand Theft Auto franchise went further down the road of depicting a real open-world setting as accurately as possible, the Saints Row series veered in a near opposite direction. The latest entry in the series, Saints Row IV, gave players control of a superpowered President of the United States as he or she fought their way out of a simulated city controlled by aliens. (It’s as delightfully crazy as it sounds.) The series’ insanity and irreverence know no bounds, and it appears the titular Saints will push the limits all the way to the underworld in a new expansion revealed at PAX Prime.
Titled Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, the standalone content focuses on franchise favorites Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington as they are thrown into hell. The two must fight their way through legions of demons and, according to the game’s trailer, “prominent historical figures,” before taking on Satan himself.
Revealed during a panel at PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington, Gat Out of Hell won’t require a copy of Saints Row IV to play. Instead, the content will be available to download for $19.95 on Jan. 27, 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
On the same day, publisher Deep Silver will also release Saints Row IV:Re-Elected, a version of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One that will include all extra content that has been released for the game. Players can choose to pick up the game itself for $29.99 or in a version bundled with Gat Out of Hell for $49.99.
