Big news, Saints Row 4 will be released soon! We’ve been checking out trailers and finding info on the game. All so that we can give you an idea of what to expect.

Saints Row 4 Trailer

What can you expect from Saints Row 4? The trailer below gives you some idea. Insanity is the short answer however. The Saints Row series is releasing its 4th game this year. Over the series they have set themselves apart from other video games due to the high levels of crazy they inject their games with. The last Saints Row game, Saints Row 3, was pretty nuts… But it looks like number 4 will go even further. I’m talking about aliens. That’s right. Aliens!

My thoughts after watching the trailer? Well, I think my brain melted a little bit. It was funny. But also… What did I just watch??

Saints Row 4 Release Date

Late August 2013. Aren’t we already in August? How did this one get past me?

Saints Row 4 Gameplay

What can I say about the Saints Row 4 gameplay? Guns, superpowers and so much more! Watch the below video and you will see why I’m so excited about this game!

What is an Open World Video Game?

Open world games are a genre of video game which do not rely as heavily on mission-based gameplay as other games. You are free to explore the game’s environment in a variety of ways, completing side-missions, mini-missions or simply interacting with scenery and characters. One of the biggest producers of open world video games is Rockstar Games. To give an idea of the open element of these games, here is a compilation of clips from GTA 4 gameplay.

1. Saints Row 3 – An Open World must-have

You want freedom? Saints Row The Third gives you freedom and then some. You have a range of activities to choose from including driving cars, fast boats and soaring through the sky in a fighter jet. The latest Saints Row game has really improved on almost all aspects of gameplay. One thing we really enjoyed was the heavy injection of insanity which the developers gave to this game. Watch the video below and you’ll see what we mean.

2. GTA 4 – Driving Down the Open World Road

I know not everyone will agree with me, but driving is what makes the GTA games great for me. Vehicles let you get around open world environments quickly, and modern driving mechanics make it as much fun as any other part of the game. See below for a high-speed car chase video from the game.

3. Red Dead Redemption – An Eco-friendly Open World Poem

Imagine for a moment an epic poem about nature and frontier life. Now imagine you get to ride around those idyllic landscapes on a wild steed, firing revolvers from the hip as you gunsling your way through an engrossing storyline. That is Red Dead Redemption, a good open world game made great by the environment and stories within it.

Soon to come…

According to the natural progression of the video game, this open world game should be jumping to the top of this list soon. It’s GTA 5 and you can find our news and review of it here.
