Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington will be taking off to Hell in a desperate bid to save the Boss/President from a forced marriage with the Devil's daughter Jezebel in the stand-alone Saints Row IV expansion Gat Out Of Hell.

Gat Out Of Hell Will Not Let You Play Your Saints Row IV Boss, But You CAN Import Him/Her

In this first gameplay video, senior producer Jim Boone talks us through a couple of minutes of Johnny Gat rampaging through the city of New Hades. The laughter starts almost immediately as Gat tries out his sloth-themed weapon from the "Seven Sins" series, which is basically an armchair armed (hehe) with rocket launchers and chain guns.

Later on, we are shown the Hellblazing activity, an amusingly named variant on Blazing from Saints Row IV, in which Johnny races through the infernal skies collecting speed and stamina boosts. The three-tier system from Saints Row IV is still in place. Speaking of amusing names: the RAMbulance has you driving an ambulance and... well, ramming dead husks for XP.

Johnny also has the ability to summon little demonic imps to attack enemies, which comes in handy if you use the "Worship" superpower, which essentially turns them into kneeling statues waiting to be shot. Look, we were down for this right at the armchair guns.

Saints Row: Gat Out Of Hell is coming to take you to Heaven on January 27.
