Fictional goon-life. Ahh, ain’t it grand? The announcement was made at the THQ Gamer’s Day on Thursday. The game promises several new tweaks to enhance the thug life experience. THQ executive veep Scott Guthrie states very originally:
Saints Row set the bar for next-gen open-world development, earning praise for its unmatched customization, controls, and the genre’s first-ever online multiplayer. The team at Volition, Inc. is leveraging invaluable experience gained on Saints Row to build Saints Row 2 into a game that sets the standard for combat, player freedom, customization, vehicle game-play, team-based co-op and the most compelling online open world experience to date.
That’s a whole lot to chew on. Setting the standard for next-gen open-world development? Get out. Why…why can’t we help but think of something that sounds so similar in terms of core features? At least they’re sure they know they’re releasing after GTA IV.
