Saints Row IV Announced, Coming This Summer, Debut Trailer [UPDATE]

Saints Row IV
Deep Silver has just announced the fourth part of the Saints Row series. Surprisingly enough, this new Saints Row game will be coming on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world. The game is developed by Volition and the publisher has also released a teaser trailer for it that can be viewed below. This looks more like a Saints Row 3.5 than a proper sequel to us, but that’s to be expected. The game will continue the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. Saints Row IV will be also packed with intensified action and enhanced customisation. Enjoy!

[UPDATE]
Deep Silver has released a press release, as well as the first screenshots, for Saints Row IV that can be viewed below!
Today Deep Silver announced that Saints Row IV™, the ball-busting next chapter in the Saints Row franchise, is starting a party in your pants this Fall.
In the next open-world installment of Saints Row, Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilize out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customization, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane installment of Saints Row yet.
Save the world, Saints Style.
Developed by Volition, Saints Row IV will launch on current-gen consoles and PC on August 20, 2013, in North America and August 23, 2013, in the rest of the world.
