The "How the Saints Save Christmas" DLC pack sees Santa Claus trapped inside the Matrix-like simulation that is at the heart of Saints Row 4's campaign, and only the Saints can save him. But there's just one problem: the boss isn't fond of Christmas, despite the visible exuberance for the holiday demonstrated in the art above.
The DLC will be available as part of the Season Pass or as a separate download for $6.99 on December 11. Check out the gallery below for more festive shots of the Saints and a snow-covered Steelport.
The Saints have travelled to the North Pole and back and have come marching in with a wealth of presents to bring plenty of holiday cheer.
1. Naughty or Nice? - Announcing the Volition Nice List
Some of Saints Row IV's developers have been very naughty this year. For the full story behind each developer's terrible deeds, check out the official website http://www.savechristmas.saintsrow.com/index.html, and get some inspiration on how the devs should redeem themselves!
What should they do to get back on Santa's Nice List? Participants can submit ideas that will help the devs win back Santa's favor. The developers will be filmed as they reenact these ideas the way only Volition can!
The submission deadline is November 29, 2013.
2. The Saints Row Sing-A-Long Christmas Carol Contest
Participants in the Sing-A-Long contest can submit a video of themselves (and their friends!) singing special Saints Row lyrics to Saints Row Jingle Bells. The best entries will be immortalized in a one-of-a-kind Saints Row video message, and all winners will receive a special seasonal gift from Deep Silver and Volition!
Chances of being canonized as a living Saint can be improved if the participants dress up as a Saints Row character for their video. The submission deadline is December 5, 2013. Instructions on how to submit a video are available at the official website http://www.savechristmas.saintsrow.com.
3. "How the Saints Save Christmas" DLC
Rejoice, December 11 is a day unlike any other, because it is the day Deep Silver and Volition will release the festive "How the Saints Save Christmas" DLC.
Santa is trapped inside the simulation, but the Scrooge-like boss of the Third Street Saints can't muster enough festive spirit to save him. Can the Saints help the boss discover the true meaning of the season in time? A holiday classic for the whole family.
Owners of the Saints Row IV Season Pass can download this DLC for free. It is also available separately for $6.99.
