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 http://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 / €2.99 / £2.49.
