Saints Row 4 has a ridiculous amount of DLC, and picking it all up individually will cost you a substantial amount of money. The National Treasure Edition bundles all of it together in one thrifty package.
In a not unanticipated move unlikely to be popular to those who have shelled out full price for the game and all the DLC to date, Deep Silver has announced the National Treasure Edition will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometimes in northern summer.
The re-release includes 29 separate add-ons and DLC packs, which on release would have set you back over $60 in total – the price of the core game over again. The National Treasure Edition will cost $30, which is just 25% of the $120 or more an early adopter would have paid.
This kind of thing can sting, and it’s becoming a standard practice – Batman: Arkham Origins Complete Edition was leaked today, for example.
As it happens, you can actually pick up most of the Saints Row 4 DLC for less than the National Treasure Edition’s cover price in the Steam Summer Sale today, but the new release also includes the Grass Roots ‘Merica! gun, “which functions similarly to the completely insane and otherwise totally bad ass multi-use weapon previously only available in the Commander In Chief Edition”.
“The National Treasure Edition Grass Roots ‘Merica is a weapon with unmeasurable freedom containing: a light machine gun, a sub machine gun, an auto shotgun, heavy pistol, a minigun, a rocket launcher, a flamethrower and a huge combat knife all in one gun. MERICA!” Deep Silver said.
