Deep Silver and Volition will release two new content packs for Saints Row IV this week, the very game we rated 8/10 in our recent review!

Presidential Pack:
Don the façades of two of our most highly-regarded founding fathers or disguise as the two Heads of State who heralded in the new millennium. Choose between four Presidential Masks or wear the classic hairstyle of days gone by with the historical wig. Show the citizens of Steelport what tradition means with the historical presidential outfit or a female historical costume.

Grass Roots Pack:
The Saints may be known for their flashy clothes and extravagant lifestyle but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a wide array of clothing, weapon, and vehicle options, such as this culturally-sensitive pack inspired by America’s more remote citizenry. Beef up your arsenal with an assortment of special Grass Roots Weapons: Decide between a double-barreled shotgun, an assault rifle, or go for the politically approved Plunger Launcher that lets you shut up any opposition quickly!

Also includes two new characteristic Grass Roots outfits and a fancy truck, complete with a pink flamingo!

Prices for DLC are £1.99 in the UK and vary depending upon locale. Check your dashboard for pricing options.

The news was announced today from the Australian Classification Board that Saints Row IV cannot be sold in Australia and was the first computer game in Australia to be Refused Classification under the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games that commenced on 1 January 2013

The Acting Director of the Classification Board Mr Donald McDonald confirmed:

The Classification Board classified the game RC (Refused Classification) in accordance with item 1(a) of the National Classification Code and in accordance with the computer games guidelines.

In the Board’s opinion, Saints Row IV, includes interactive, visual depictions of implied sexual violence which are not justified by context. In addition, the game includes elements of illicit or proscribed drug use related to incentives or rewards. Such depictions are prohibited by the computer games guidelines.

Mr McDonald said the Classification Board had now been applying the new computer games guidelines for almost six months and this was the first game to be refused classification.

“Apart from today’s decision, since the beginning of the year, the Board has classified 17 games R 18+ under the new guidelines,” Mr McDonald said.

When making decisions about computer games, the Classification Board must use the criteria set out in the Classification (Publications, Films and Computer Games Act) 1995, the National Classification Code and the Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games.

The new Guidelines for the Classification of Computer Games came into effect on 1 January 2013. Prior to then, Australia did not have an adult category for computer games. An application to classify Saints Row IV was received by the Classification Board on 13 May 2013
