Saints Row 2 Takes on GTA IV
A newly released trailer for the upcoming game Saints Row 2 leaves no doubt that publisher THQ knows who their competition is. The trailer pokes some subtle jabs at Grand Theft Auto IV, asking “would you rather…go bowling? [a reference to the bowling mini-game in GTAIV] Or steal a septic truck and spray loads of sewage on pedestrians?”
The trailer also pokes fun at the ability to go to a cabaret club, as well as “watch[ing] TV within the game you’re playing, on your TV.” [A reference to the television programming that was available in the safehouses in GTAIV]
Besides dumping waste on everybody in sight, the trailer mentions that Saints Row 2 will allow players to get down to their birthday suit and streak, join a fight club, base jump, car surf, or hop in a monster truck and compete in a demolition derby.
Will Rockstar respond to the trailer in kind? Given the sales, Rockstar might be too busy swimming in money to take notice.
Saints Row 2 will launch in Europe on October 17th, 2008.
