Hello PlayStation Blog, how are things? Been looking at any buildings recently and wishing you could sprint up the side of them? No?
Well, you will after playing Saints Row IV, the star of our latest Access Verdict video and a certifiably bonkers open world title that casts you as the President of the United States in an alien-controlled computer simulation. With super powers.
That last bit is important as it completely bins all the conventions of traditional open-world traversal – you can leap over buildings, sprint faster than cars and glide huge distances at super speed.
Everything else is mad of course – this is Saints Row after all – and if you want a first-hand glimpse of what’s in store when Saints Row IV hits UK PS3s on 23rd August, then check out the video – it’s almost as crackers as the game itself.
