Saints Row IV Pre-Order Bonus is About As ‘Merica As You Can Get

The people at Deep Silver announced the specifics of the Saints Row IV pre-order bonus today, and it looks every bit as nuts as you’d expect. We’ve already told you all about the dubstep wubwubs and mech suits, but it looks like they were holding back a little bit of the crazy until now. Dubbed the “Commander-in-Chief Edition,” this upgrade comes free with pre-orders at participating retailers and gives you a jump start on all the weirdness in the game. Take a look at these exclusive items and try to resist the urge to break out into an impromptu “USA!” chant.

Screaming Eagle Jet – Probably the coolest item in the pack, this jet fires rockets out of its talons and utilizes a sonic scream that leaves enemies dazed and confused. No word yet on when Obama switches Air Force One over to this improved model, but I think we can all agree it is long overdue.

‘Merica Weapon – Nothing says MERICA like apple pies, baseball, and a gun so big that other guns are afraid of it. This gun has flamethrowers, ultra dubstep guns, and rocket launchers combined into one sexy package of what the hell is this. I don’t think I’ve ever said this before, but that gun has too many guns. Texas thinks this is too much and their state bird is a pistol.

Uncle Sam Uniform – Want your character to look like a second tier wrestler or a third tier country musician? No? Oh, well then you should probably ignore this lame Uncle Sam uniform they’ve thrown in to round out the package. In a game with almost limitless character customization, the one thing I don’t need is a single extra outfit, especially when it looks like this.

USA! USA! USA! US-err…


Sorry about that. I don’t know what came over me. Saints Row IV will see a North American release on August 20 and a release everywhere else on August 23, so you have plenty of time to decide whether or not the jet and guns gun is reason enough to pre-order.
