After going up into the space, the Saints Row franchise has nowhere to go but down. Way down.

Volition has announced Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, a standalone expansion where Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington go to hell to save the soul of the President/Emperor of the Universe.

Players will play Gat or Kinzie (or both in co-op) and will fight the forces of hell to get to Satan himself and shoot him in the face. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun and full length musical number all await the Saints in the open world playground that is the city of New Hades.

The city itself is divided into five islands, including crammed slums built for ultimate suffering, a towering downtown where Hell’s elite reside, and a barren wasteland of an ancient war.

Player will explore and blow up New Hades using a new set of superpowers with a supernatural twist. Angelic wings, demonic summons and deadly auras are all part of the new arsenal, as well as The 7 Legendary Deadly Weapons – each the “twisted embodiment of one of the 7 deadly sins.”

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell will send you down on January 27, 2015 in North America, and January 30 in Europe. It will be available on both last-gen and new-gen consoles, and the PC.
