Saints Row IV gameplay walkthrough fights pedestrians, aliens

Steelport was a playground of mayhem in Saints Row: The Third, but Saints Row IV's take on the seedy metropolis is just ridiculous. Dubstep guns, RPG launchers disguised as guitar cases, mech suit missions, and a host of superpowers are all demonstrated in this developer walkthrough for Volition's next open world game.

It's no secret that much of this game--at least the idea of a Matrix-style virtual Steelport and a superpowered boss--began life as a standalone expansion to Saints Row The Third. We'll see if the boisterous new missions, weaponry, superpowers, and an alien menace are enough to keep the pace for an otherwise familiar experience, but we've got a good feeling.

Saints Row IV will release on August 20 in the U.S. and August 23 in the U.K. on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
