Today at the Quiz Hour with Voltion panel at PAX Prime, the Champagne, Il based developer announced it is working on Saints Row: Gat Goes to Hell.
Aubrey Norris, Brand Developer at Deep Silver, was on hand along with Volition developers Steve Jaros, Jim Boone and Mike Watson with voice actor Natalie Lander – most well know for her role as Kinzie in the Saints Row series. After a a series of trivia questions and giving away prizes to fans, including a dedicated fan with a working dubstep gun that played music, the panel should a brief trailer showing off Saints Row: Gat Goes to Hell.
After using a ouija board on Kinzie’s birthday and spelling out ‘Jezebel,’ a portal rips open and pulls the president into hell. The game places players in the role of Johnny Gat and Kinzie and can play through the game entirely in co-op.
Players can get angelic wings and fly through the city scape of Steelport filled with demons and other scary creatures. New weapons were shown of like a chair that players can move around in, shooting chain guns and launching cluster rockets all over the streets. The item is called ‘sloth’ and is one out of a series weapons called the ‘seven deadly sins.’
The panel ended with a ridiculous sneak preview for a musical number that will be featured in the final game. Satan, Kinzie and Gat share a long dramatic number with its fair shares of hysterical moments that are fitting for the series. I was asked not to record any of the musical, so you’ll just have to wait and see when you get your hands on it at the beginning of next year (hint: It’s as good, if not better than the ‘Everybody Walk the Dinosaur’ moment from Saints Row 4’s DLC).
Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is a stand alone expansion to the series and is being developed together with High Voltage games for release on January 27th. I’ll be sitting down with Volition to see the game more later this week at PAX Prime, look forward to a preview right here on DualShockers.
Update: Deep Silver also released a new gameplay trailer, which you can check out below:
