Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is a standalone expansion for the action adventure game, Saints Row IV, that was originally released in the mid 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PCs, and then re-issued for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as Re-Elected edition. It was developed by Volition, a studio known for the Saints Row series and such titles as Red Faction and Freespace. A team at High Voltage Software was also involved in the production process. In Gat out of Hell, we assume the role of Johnny Gat, who goes to hell along with Kinzie. Our task is to help the two to rescue the kidnapped president whom Satan intends to marry to his daughter.
The gameplay mechanics rely on the same solutions as the original game. We still deal with a humorous and absurd sandbox, in which we preform increasingly bizarre missions for the opposers of Satan, who want to turn the current hierarchy of importance upside down. The developers did introduce a few novelties, though. Johnny received new powers and even angelic wings. There are also new weapon models to choose from, such as an armchair equipped with miniguns. Satan also got new lesser and bigger (even huge) minions.
The game is powered by the same engine as Saints Row IV. The developers made sure the game’s environment would be completely hellish. Additionally, the whole is complemented by heavy metal riffs. The campaign can be played both solo and in cooperation mode.
