Saints Row IV

THQ Nordic, the company behind the Darksiders and de Blob re-releases, has bought Koch Media, owner of Saints Row and Dead Island publisher Deep Silver, in a deal worth 121m euro.

For that, THQ Nordic gets all of Deep Silver's studios and games, such as Volition (Saints Row), Dambuster (Homefront) and Dead Island. It also picks up Deep Silver's exclusive rights to the Metro games, which are developed by 4A.

In a note to press, THQ Nordic said it has no plans to restructure Deep Silver, which hopefully means jobs are safe (there are 150 people currently at Volition, for example), and Koch Media will continue to operate as a separate entity within the THQ Nordic group. It also said it plans to soldier on with Deep Silver's current slate of in-development games.

Saints Row IV - Deep Silver
The My Steelport server is being closed from January 31st. This means character and screenshot sharing services in Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV will no longer be available after that date.

The decision to switch off the servers was difficult for us and not taken lightly. We want our fans to enjoy our work for as long as possible. However more than 4 years after Saints Row IV released, we have experienced a significant reduction in the numbers of players using these services.

We believe our resources are now better spent on preparing for the future! We'd like to thank everyone who has used and enjoyed the content sharing and community features on the official site for their support.

Saints Row: The Third - (Jody Macgregor)

A friend of mine started the Saints Row [official site] series with the fourth one. She loved having superpowers and trashing a virtual city, but she did wonder what the deal was with Johnny Gat. Even though he’s not in half the game spoilers for the third and fourth Saints Rows, but Johnny Gat dies and then comes back to life his absence is felt. Characters talk about how his loss changed them. The dude with the sunglasses and neck tattoos who seems like a generic video game badass is treated like he matters.

Gat’s a mascot for Saints Row, whether cameoing in games outside the series or within them. You start Saints Row: The Third with every member of the gang wearing an oversized Gat mask during a bank robbery even Gat himself has one, pointless as that makes the disguise. Everybody wants to be Johnny Gat. To understand why he has that reputation, why fans love him while outsiders roll their eyes, we have to go back to Saints Row 2.

It’s Saints Row a go-go round GOG today as the store celebrates more of Volition’s wacky open-world crime ’em ups arriving DRM-free on its virtual shelves. Some Saints games have been on GOG for ages but now the lineup is complete with the addition of Saints Row 4 (the one where you’re the President of the USA) and Gat out of Hell (the one in Hell). To mark this Saint-o-rama, Saints Row 2 (possibly still my favourite Saints Row) is free for 48 hours. And folks who own Saints Row games on Steam can add them to their GOG account to get DRM-free versions. GOG are holding a sale too. … [visit site to read more]

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Alice O'Connor)

Back in the day, to install mods we needed to trudge through the digital snow — upcyberhill, both ways — and we’d consider ourselves lucky if we only got caned thrice for mistyping DOS commands. The youth of today are spoiled, simply clicking a few buttons in the Steam Workshop to install and play mods. Where’s the graft? I swear, some of these kids playing mods these days haven’t even lost fingers to cyberfrostbite. Fine then, go on, go and play Saints Row 4 [official site] mods easily with its fancy new official Steam Workshop support, see if I care. The game’s on sale now too. … [visit site to read more]

The Saints Row series is all about the freedom to play how you want, and we're now taking that one step further with Steam Workshop support for Saints Row IV PC! It's never been easier to create and install mods that add new weapons and clothing, run custom scripts, and change gameplay values. Head over to the Saints Row IV community hub in your Steam client, click the Workshop tab, and start browsing. It's just that easy!

To celebrate, Saints Row IV PC is on sale for 75% off on Steam all this week and next!

There were many challenges in implementing Steam Workshop support since the game was not originally designed to support modding. A handful of dedicated Volition devs worked on this in their free time to update the engine and remove memory restrictions, as well as finding a way for individual mods to interact and work correctly with each other without the need for running special tools. It was all a labor of love for our fans, and we're incredibly excited to see the crazy content you come up with!

One last extra special thanks to the modding community at who worked with us on creating and improving the tools, along with all the testing and feedback over the last few years. We couldn't have done it without you!

* Please note that only the Windows version of Saints Row IV PC is currently compatible with Workshop. We hope to announce Linux support soon.
