Earlier this morning, Deep Silver and Volition finally lifted the veil off of Saints Row IV with a teaser trailer and a confirmed release date of August 20th.
This news first appeared on twitter courtesy of the official Saints Row twitter account as displayed below:

The video above showcases several gameplay segments and cinematic sequences from the game along with a promise that this will indeed be the final chapter in the series. More Saints Row IV details are expected to be unveiled during next week's PAX East show in Boston, MA.
After taking a glimpse at this trailer, I will say that I'm excited for this game but still not convinced that it can go head-to-head with GTA V. Even with an earlier release date then GTA V, Saints Row IV doesn't quite strike me as a major game to be hyped up for mainly because of the story behind this product's development. Many will instantly remember that a major DLC package planned for Saints Row 3 basically became the framework for this title and therefore this sequel has the potential to disappoint. Of course, I could be wrong about all this but luckily we don't have to wait too long to find out.
Does this trailer make you more or less excited for Saints Row IV? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
