Saints Row 4 Sells 1 Million, Presidential And Grass Roots DLC Now Live
Saints Row 4 is receiving its first two DLC packs today. Deep Silver also took the opportunity to announce the sales figures for the game's first week in stores.
Since the game's debut in North America on August 20th, it's sold over 1 million units worldwide and is topping the charts in countries like Germany and the UK. On the PC, sales are triple what they were for Saints Row: The Third.
"We are incredibly happy of the reception for Saints Row IV as a critical and now a commercial success," said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver parent Koch Media. "The development team at Volition is second-to-none as a driving creative force in the entertainment industry and we are very proud to have them as part of the Deep Silver family."
In Saints Row 4, the leader of the Third Street Saints has been elected President. He doesn't have much time to enjoy his new post, though. An alien species has invaded and trapped the Saints inside a computer simulation of Steelport. The Saints must escape and drive the aliens from their world.
Judging from the sales and positive reviews, Koch Media made the right call in rescuing Saints Row 4. The game's fate was put in jeopardy when original publisher THQ went bankrupt. Koch bought Volition and the Saints Row series in January.
Saints Row 4 owners have two very different DLC packs to choose from. The Presidential Pack unlocks masks modeled after Barack Obama, George W. Bush, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Players can also don male or female historical suits or a powdered wig.
The Grassroots Pack provides overalls and Daisy Dukes to give your character a more rural look. A new truck included with the DLC looks like the Beverly Hillbilles' old ride. Players will also have access to a new double-barreled shotgun, assault rifle, and plunger launcher.
The Grassroots and Presidential Pack will be available on Steam and PSN by the end of the day. Xbox 360 gamers will get it tomorrow. Each DLC pack will cost $2.99 to download.
