Saints Row IV is Officially Official

After a grand saga, including the dissolution of THQ and the acquisition of developer Volition by their new publisher Deep Silver, it's now being announced that Saints Row IV is -indeed- a thing and we'll be seeing it at PAX East next week.
In this new installment of the Saints story, the leader of The Saints is elected to the Presidency of the United States, Aliens invade, humanity get's enslaved, and everyone ends up with super powers. I'm also not making any of that up. It looks like the series is determined to keep -or even ramp up- the 'crazy' Saints Row has been known for, which is a great thing. In fact, I wanted Saints Row III to be even crazier than it turned out to really be.
Saints Row IV is set for a an August 20th release in North America, and August 23rd release in the rest of the world, for PC's, the 360 and PS3. Apparently there will not be a Wii U version of the game because...well...yeah.
If you want to see Saints Row yourself, Deep Silver will be doing a behind-closed-doors viewing at PAX East next week, but I advise you to get there early to fight the long lines or cosplay, because according to Deep Silver people cosplaying as members of The Saints will get to the head of the line. I'm sure you have something purple and black lying around.
From the DS press release:
The newly announced Saints Row IV will make its worldwide debut in Boston next week with exclusive behind-closed-doors presentations led by producers from Volition. As an added bonus to the Saints Row community, any PAX East attendees that cosplay as a Saints Row character will be allowed to skip to the front of the line for the presentation. Attendees are expected to leave the Saints Row theater wide-eyed and joyous, their clothes transmuted into black suits with purple accents.
