Deep Silver, the publisher that recently took over the Saints Row series, has unleashed a character creator for the upcoming Saints Row IV. Dubbed the Saints Row IV: Inauguration Station, anyone who grabs the program will be able to customize their gangster-turned-U.S. president and import the characters into the game proper when it’s released on Aug. 20. It’s currently available for free on Steam, for PC users, and on Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version will be available on August 13.
One of my favorite parts of the recent Saints Row games has been the character creation. It’s not much of a surprise that a game featuring a giant purple dildo as a weapon would have a wacky suite of customization options. Things have been toned down since the oddly progressive gender slider of Saints Row 2, but it’s still a heck of a lot of fun to build your own monstrosity. Here’s my take on a horribly sunburnt, recently retired lackey from a bad ’70s martial arts movie:
And here he is dancing:
If you happen to download and use the character creator, it would be pretty cool if you shared your results in the comments.
