Weirdness: Saints Row IV Conveniently Cashes GATV Add-On Next Week
Posted by Sammy Barker
Considering that the Saints Row series started life as a cheap Grand Theft Auto knock-off, it’s amazing how much the franchises have diverged. While the previous instalment in Rockstar’s sandbox series adopted a more realistic guise, Volition Software’s own property has backflipped off the side of a cliff wearing a tutu. Still, given the origins of the Deep Silver-owned brand, it's hardly surprising that the company's decided to take a tongue-in-cheek swipe at the release of Grand Theft Auto V next week.
According to the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast, a new Saints Row IV add-on pack named GATV will be made available on Tuesday in North America – the same day as the aforementioned sequel’s big launch. A post on GameFAQs claims that this cleverly dubbed DLC will include Johnny Gat-style clothes, hair, and a knife-gun. It’ll be joined by a Wild West expansion, but additional details regarding that are scarce. We’ll be disappointed if it’s got nothing to do with the Will Smith hit of the same name.
