Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell will descend into the netherworld on Jan. 20, 2015 — a week earlier than its originally scheduled release date, publisher Deep Silver announced this week.
Alongside the announcement, Deep Silver also released a new Gat Out of Hell trailer, based on the seven deadly sins. Christians, scholars and fans of the 1995 David Fincher film Seven may be familiar with them. Players of Saints Row: Gat out of Hell will soon be, too, though in a slightly different form than classically understood: Players will wield weapons based on envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath. Press play above to see the series' absurdist takes on sins as weapons.
Series creator Volition revealed Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, a standalone expansion that sends the titular Johnny Gat to Hell and pits him against Satan, at PAX Prime 2014. Developed with High Voltage Software, it will be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC for $19.95.
