Deep Silver and Volition Support Child’s Play Charity with Saints Row IVT Add-on Content – Available Now!
Larkspur, Calif., — December 12, 2013 — A special add-on content pack in support of the Child’s Play charity is now available in Saints Row IV™: The Child’s Play Pack (a special web site for this DLC is located at www.childsplay.saintsrow.com.) Publisher Deep Silver and developer Volition are donating all proceeds from this pack in support of Child’s Play.
Child’s Play is a video game industry charity which raises money to support sick children and their families during their stay in hospitals and therapy facilities. Just recently, Child’s Play announced that through the generosity of donors worldwide they have raised more than $20 million over its ten year existence.
“The generosity of Deep Silver, Volition and Saints Row IV fans will positively impact the lives of children in our network of hospitals around the world. By providing video games and other forms of play, child life specialists are able to help children cope with pain and fear, and make the holidays a little brighter for sick kids,” says Jamie Dillion, program coordinator at Child’s Play.
“We are happy to continue our ongoing support for Child’s Play with this new exclusive content for Saints Row IV. Children are our future, and to help alleviate their sometimes painful treatments through Child Play’s work means a great deal to us. As a father myself, I wholly support the Child’s Play cause,” said Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver’s parent company Koch Media.
The Child’s Play Pack in Saints Row IV contains toys that will bring back childhood memories. Players will be able to rampage through the virtual city of Steelport as a Digital Dino or go bananas in the Robochimp Outfit, while the Retro Rocket vehicle lets players soar through the streets of Steelport in classic style.
Saints Row fans can support Child’s Play for a limited time by purchasing this add-on for the PC at a price of $2.99 USD / EUR 2.99 / GBP 2.49.

About Saints Row IV
In the critical and commercial hit Saints Row IV, Volition continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level – the leaders of the free world. 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.

About Child’s Play
Since 2003, we’ve set up and organized Child’s Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience. www.childsplaycharity.org.
