Behold: Saints Row: Gat out of Hell's glorious launch... infomercial?

Operators are standing by.

You've got to hand it to Volition and Deep Silver, the developer and publisher behind Saints Row 4. In addition to creating one of the smartest, funniest, most fun, and shockingly progressive adventures in recent years, it's also assembled quite the marketing campaign for its upcoming next-gen re-release, Saints Row 4: Re-Elected, and standalone expansion Gat out of Hell.

This latest launch trailer takes the form of an infomercial espousing the virtues of Saints Row 4's new content. You know, things like "enhanced graphics, extra nut kicks, sharing and livestreaming, extra polygons, 666 times the colours, one million p or more resolution, more english speaking aliens, [and] more obscure pop culture references."

As a bonus, that number at the bottom actually leads to a very funny six-minute message. Though we're not sure if the "calls from outside the US and Canada may be charged at your telecommunication provider's international call rates " line is a joke or not. But if you can, give it a listen.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell and Saints Row 4: Re-Elected are both due on 23rd January. The latter is exclusive to PS4 and Xbox One, while the former can be purchased on those as well as on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
