Back of the Box
In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying. Saints Row IV lets players delve into an arsenal of alien weaponry and technology that will turn each Saint into an ultimate entity of destruction. Utilise out-of-this-world superpowers to fight all the way to the top. With intensified action and enhanced customisation, players can use their newfound superpowers and leap over buildings, outrun the fastest sports cars, or send enemies flying with telekinesis in the greatest, most insane instalment of Saints Row yet.

Full system requirements for Saints Row 4 reported on Jun-08-2013

Saints Row 4, despite nearly disappearing with its publisher, THQ, earlier this year, is to release in only a couple of months. Well known for its rude, tongue in cheek humour and open world, over the top action, this game has won over the hearts of many as the game that will go where GTA will not.

What PC hardware you need in order to have some fun with goofy weapons, fight crazy aliens and kidnap celebrities? Lets look at the Saints Row 4 system requirements to see if you can run it...

Saints Row 4 Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win Vista (x86 or x64) with SP2

CPU: Quad Core Processor such as an AMD Phenom II X4 or even Intel Core i5 or Dual Core 3GHz+

RAM: 4 GB Memory

HD: 10 GB of free hard drive space

GPU RAM: 1GB RAM GPU with Shader

DX: DirectX 11

Audio: 100% DirectX 9.0C compliant sound card or equivalent onboard sound

 

Saints Row 4 Recommended System Requirements

OS: Win Vista (x86 or x64) with SP2

CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 2.5 GHz or Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5 GHz

RAM: 4 GB Memory

HD: 10 GB of free hard drive space

GPU: Radeon HD 5850 1GB or GeForce GTX 260 GTS 1GB or better

DX: DirectX 11

Saints Row 4 system requirement mini review

First point of interest, the recommended SR4 requirements look almost identical to the minimum system requirements. This means that once you meet the min you are likely to get a well rounded gaming experience.

The operating system suggested is Windows Vista but that does not natively support the other requirement of DirectX 11. So we suggest making sure you have Windows 7 running in order to play Saints Row 4 to be on the safe side.

The minimum RAM requirement for St Row 4 is 4GB, this RAM minimum requirement is what we are coming to expect over the coming 12 months especially with the new consoles just around the corner. However, once you meet the 4GB it does not seem like you will gain any benefits from having any more RAM spare as the recommended RAM for Saints Row 4 is also 4GB.

Realistically Saints Row 4 is expecting you to be weilding a quad core CPU, even in minimum requirements.

The Saints Row 4 GPU requirement seems to want the 1GB GPU RAM as minimum. We do not always trust the GPU RAM requirement because some powerful GPUs have slightly less than 1GB and other weaker GPUs have far more than 1GB, thus making the figure sometimes hard to work with. Make sure you use our system requirement tool to give you a good guideline though and make sure you give your own feedback when the time comes.

Saints Row IV takes place a couple years after it's predecessor. The leader of band of celebs known as The Saints has been elected as the president of the USA. And so this time around you will be defending the Earth from an alien invasion and you get to play as an awesome kickass President, who personally takes the fight to the enemy. SR4 also maintains its open world craziness that we have come to love.

The game has not yet been announced for all the next-gen consoles, but currently is set to release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS4 on August 20th, 2013 and August 22nd in the UK.

Once we get our hands on this title we will know far more and then put it through its paces on some of the GD machines.  As always we encourage you to give your feedback also, once you get your own version of the game.
