Saints 1

North American developer Volition’s silly sandbox excursion Saints Row IV is set to refresh this winter with a spot of seasonal cheer. Fans of the open world adventure will be able to rip open a new add-on from 11th December, which will detail the Saints’ attempts to save Santa Claus from a Matrix-esque simulation. Judging by the screenshots embedded below, you’ll be wrapping up warm in festive clobber and blowing the heads off evil tin soldiers. An average day in Steelport, then?

The content will set you back $6.99 and will include three story missions, two seasonal vehicles, and three fresh firearms. Additional rides will include, er, Santa’s Sleigh, as well as a potent melee weapon in the form of the North Pole. If you’ve already splashed out for the title’s Season Pass then you’ll find this stuffed in your PlayStation Store stocking for free. Do you think that this sounds like a Christmas cracker or a ho-ho-hopeless idea? Carve out a comment in the space below.
