Nine out of ten publishers want you to pre-order their game (the 10th needs
you to preorder) and are trying to do everything in their power to get you to throw down some nationally-backed currency towards their games. Deep Silver is no different and is giving Saints Row
fans another reason to take the pre-order leap of faith by announcing the "Commander in Chief Edition" for Saints Row IV
The "Commander in Chief Edition" is set to include the following:obj Note: I usually hate to straight copy-and-paste press releases, but this is too funny not to use verbatim
(T)he leaders of the free world are under attack from an alien invasion in the land of the free, and it’s up to you and your gang to save the world, Saints-style. To help you combat the alien terrorists you will encounter, the Commander in Chief Edition is a free upgrade for all pre-orders at participating retailers and comes fully loaded with a Screaming Eagle that fires rockets out of its talons and can invoke the “Sonic Scream” attack, leaving your enemies dazed, confused and likely scarred for life.
Additionally, if you’re going to save the world you should look good while doing it, which is why the Commander in Chief gives you a limited-edition Uncle Sam uniform, made in the US of good ‘ol A (apple pie not included.) And since you need the best [read: most ridiculously overpowered weapons ever conceived] fighting tools available, Volition and Deep Silver are giving you a stimulus package, “'Merica”, full of incredibly astonishing firepower: flamethrowers, ultra-powered dub step guns and rocket launchers are yours for the taking. Crown thy good with brotherhood, indeed.
We've also got a gloriously patriotic image of these digital goodies.Saints Row IV
is set for an August 20th launch in North and Latin America and an August 23rd launch everywhere else.
