Every weekend, Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch for 1-2 hours, showing you some of the wide variety of games available on Microsoft's latest console. Last week, we streamed Sniper Elite III and dished out codes to 23 lucky viewers.
Tonight, we'll be playing Saints Row IV: Re-Elected from High Voltage Software and Deep Silver. We want you guys there, chatting along. So we're giving out a variety of codes as prizes – mostly for Steam this time.
Update: The stream has ended. Continue reading to see the replay and list of prize winners!
Tip: If watching the stream in another window, close this one to avoid audio echoes.
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected
The Saints Row series started out as a Grand Theft Auto clone, but eventually branched off in a much different direction. Saints Row IV is an open-world game with an extremely silly storyline and lots of humorous weapons like the infamous Dubstep Gun.
Players also get super powers with which to navigate the world and defeat enemies, making this the closest thing to Crackdown we have on Xbox One – until Crackdown 3 finally comes along.
Saints Row IV on Xbox One is available either by itself or bundles with the brand-new standalone 'Gat out of Hell' expansion. Check out the contents of each game:
- Saints Row IV: Re-Elected: Includes the base game, both DLC mission packs, plus 25+ DLC weapons, 15 new vehicles, 60+ wardrobe items, 15 new homies & 6 new superpower elements.
- Saints Row: Gat out of Hell: For the first time ever, play as the fan favorites Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington, alone or in 2-player online co-op. Features an open world from hell, new supernatural powers, outrageous weapons and more.
Tune in tonight to see just how well Saints Row IV (which started out on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3) fares on current gen systems.
- Saints Row IV: Re-Elected – Xbox One – 12 GB – $29.99 – Xbox.com Link
- Saints Row IV: Gat out of Hell – Xbox One – 7 GB – $19.99 – Xbox.com Link
- Saints Row IV: Re-elected + Saints Row: Gat out of Hell – Xbox One – $49.49 – Amazon Link – Xbox.com Link
We'll be streaming Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for ~2 hours tonight, starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific). During that time, we'll be giving out a total of 10 game codes:
- 1 IDARB for Xbox One
- 1 Flockers for Steam
- 1 Defense Grid 2 for Steam
- 7 Anomaly Defense for Steam
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. No code begging!
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
