About Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

Don't have Saints Row: Gat out of Hell?

Genre: Action | Publisher: Deep Silver | Platform: PC
Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is an entirely standalone spin-off adventure with mechanics lifted from the base game, Saints Row 4. It shares many of SR4's features, including an emphasis on superpowers, over-the-top game mechanics and quirky characters.

Developed by Volition and High Voltage Software, Gat Out of Hell is an open-world sandbox action adventure game that features a main storyline, as well as a bevy of side missions including races and time trials. The content that's included will be standard fare for fans of the sandbox genre.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell: What We Like The Most

Superpowers: The best superpowers from Saints Row 4 have made the jump over to Gat Out of Hell, including fan-favorites such as super sprint and stomp as well as new, exciting abilities such as flight, which grants your character angel wings and enables the player to soar across the map while leaving a flaming trail of feathers behind them.

Two Playable Characters: While the titular character, Johnny Gat, is the default choice for players to experience Gat Out of Hell, one can also play as Kinzie Kensington, meaning that both a male and female protagonist are available. This means double the off-color, hilarious dialogue for players to experience.

The Setting: The game's backdrop, New Hades, is a refreshing change of pace from the usual Saints Row cityscape. Being able to explore the depths of Hell means that player will be treated to a far more interesting locale than what is typically offered within the sandbox genre. 

The Basics of Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Play

Gat Out of Hell sees the Saints continuing their adventure right from where they left off in Saints Row 4, aboard a spaceship while celebrating Kinzie's birthday. As part of the festivities, they play a game of Ouija Board and end up accidentally contacting Satan, who then proposes that Johnny Gat marry his daughter Jezebel. From here, it's a race against the clock to escape Hell and return to reality.

Johnny and Kinzie's journey reunites players with all of the best elements from Saints Row 4, in a smaller, more condensed package. Loads of superpowers and Hell-themed guns are available for players to experiment with as they battle the armies of Satan.

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell: Core Challenges

At the beginning of the game, you're dropped into New Hades with little heath and very weak weapons. This means that in the beginning, the demonic enemies that stand between you and victory will have the advantage. An easy way to level the playing field is through focusing your upgrades on health enhancements, and boosting your tolerance for damage as much as you can. If you can maximize your capacity for punishment from enemies, even weak guns can lead to success.

When you first gain access to your flight and super sprint powers, use them to collect all the Soul Clusters in New Hades before tackling missions. These clusters are necessary to upgrade your powers, and if you are diligent in your scavenging, this early collection of Clusters could leave you with fully upgraded powers before you're even a third of the way through the game, saving yourself from a lot of the game's later, more frustrating segments.

Notoriety will become a massive nuisance if you don't deal with it, as the game will send more and more sporadic goons to attack you as you progress through missions and anger Satan. The easiest and smartest way to go about reducing the amount of demons on your tail is by paying for a notoriety reduction at weapons vendors.

Top User Questions About Saints Row

Do I need to have played other Saints Row game to understand the plot?
While Gat Out of Hell opens with a direct continuation of the plot from Saints Row 4, it immediately whisks players away into a new adventure that requires no previous knowledge to fully enjoy the game. 

Does the setting change the Saints Row formula?
While the game sticks closely to the quirky mechanics of Saints Row 4, there are some unique elements added to remind the players that they're in Hell. Weapons themed after the Seven Deadly Sins, such as the Gluttony Gun and the inclusion of angel wings mix up the traditional Saints Row formula just enough for things to feel fresh but not foreign.

How long is the game?
Being a standalone downloadable title, Gat Out of Hell is far shorter than its retail-release brethren, clocking in at just under five hours for players focusing solely on the story, with an additional five hours of content for those wanting to experience everything the game has to offer.
