Since Forum:Saints Row IV facts worked so well as an information dump, I'm going to go with that format again.
Saints Row: Gat out of Hell can only hold so much information, so it's nice to have somewhere to list all known information before it gets organised. Please add the facts and references here to relevant articles.
Any time a gameplay video is released, let me know here and I'll upload 100 screenshots of it for use as references.
Remember: This wiki does not claim to be a news site.
This wiki is the largest and most detailed archive of information about the Saints Row series, it is built by fans, for fans - if you're a fan, and you want to add news, feel free!

|Cribs/Gateways?||There are 6 "Portals", one on each of 5 islands... and? These are used to Teleport. No confirmation whether they function as Cribs.|||
|Stores||There are 10 Stores. Most appear to be "Sinterpol Armory" Weapon Stores. There appears to be no Store Ownership, as all City Takeover territories are accounted for.|||
|Weapons Cache||The words "Access Weapons Cache" have been replaced with "Access Collected Weapons", further suggesting that there are no cribs.|
|Playa||It has been stated that your previous character customisations will be imported from a local save file. Presumably a Saints Row IV save file only. It has not been stated what happens if you have multiple characters in multiple save files, or how to choose between them. This is the very first time in the Saints Row series where local importing has been possible - if they can do it across different games like this, then that means they definitely could have allowed importing a character from a different save file the entire time, but chose not to.|
|Dane Vogel||Is an ally in hell. He gives quests and help, fulfilling the role Kinzie played in the previous game.|
|Previous characters||Dex's voice actor has recorded lines and appears as a zombie-like demon in hell, and he spawns at least 7 times as part of a Challenge. Legal Lee and Troy are specifically mentioned, but it is not known if they physically appear.|
|Challenges||There are 102. Only 56 are known. Challenges have been merged into the main quest log, and are split into related groups.
After release, there are now 101 Challenges
|City Takeover||Territories are now all Hoods with actual names, and appear to contain exactly one point of interest.|
|Diversion Targets||65 Marked Diversion Targets (+17 Activities = 82, but there are only 81 hoods. So there is one Target or Activity which does NOT unlock a Hood.)
After release, there are now 82 Hoods.
|Known Targets||Marshalling Grounds (5), Extraction Facilities (4), Survival (13), Altars (8)||   |
|Flashpoints||"Spires" are targets which appear to be the size of Flashpoints. They incorporate to "Hold Y" mechanic from Hotspots. They can fire missiles from a distance, which can be dodged by a button press. There are 26 spires in total. Spires do not unlock territory.
edit: The map icon for Spires is indeed "map_start_flashpoint"
|  |
|Hotspots||"Marshalling Grounds" are targets which are about the size of Hotspots. They incorporate to "Hold Y" to shut down multiple locations from Hotspots. They incorporate the Brute/Warden battle from some Flashpoints. There are 5 Marshalling Grounds, and once taken over they incorporate the teleportation function of Gateways, but only between those 5 locations. Marshalling Grounds are filled with lava until they are unlocked.
edit: The map icon for Marshalling Grounds is indeed "map_start_hotspot"
|Clusters||Now known as Soul Clusters, there are 940 of them.|||
|Cash||Cash is called "Wages" (as in "Wages of Sin")|||
|Vehicles||Yes, you can drive. There is no Garage, Vehicle Customization, boats or aircraft. There are few cars, and one bike.|||
|Confirmed Vehicles||Confirmed = name shown on screen.
|Weapons||There are 19 weapons. 7 of those are special weapons based on the Seven Deadly Sins. As with Saints Row IV, weapons have Costumes, thus have multiple names.
After release, there are now 20 weapons.
|Known Weapons||Weapons in Saints Row: Gat out of Hell
|7 deadly weapons||
|7 Deadly Weapons - Sloth location||Spirit Bilge, right next to the 666 building|
|"Gat Gear"||The "Gat Gear" trailer is an imitation of Top Gear. Top Gear did not review the Armchair-a-geddon, although the teaser and the full trailer were obviously designed to fool people into thinking they did, including the announcer doing a terrible Jeremy Clarkson impression.|
|Controls||Whatever your opinion of Steve Jaros, at least he recognises that the right control stick controls your feet, and the left control stick controls your head, and therefore "Inverted" Y is the correct way to play, as you do not move your head forward to look up.|||
|Activities||17 Activities. 8 Hellblazing, 3 "Torment Fraud", 3 "Salvation", 3 Mayhem.||    |
|Barnstorming||Because you have wings, Barnstorming might actually be fun and not a chore. (Also, there are 75 of them - so it's likely still a case of "fly under every single bridge")
After release, we now know that there are 123 locations, but only 75 are needed for the Achievement
|Mispelling||DyWynter  |
|Enemy types||Demons, Dark Inciters, Archdukes (Wardens), Imps, Grenadiers (Murderbots - Specialists with grenade launchers), Shadow Demons (snipers), Legionnaires (Marauders - weaker wardens), Bro Demons, Tragedy Demons.||        |
|Imps||One of the powers is "Summon", one of the elements is "Imps", which causes Imps to be summoned. Once summoned, Imps can be detonated.|||
|Achievements||There are 45 Achievements / Trophies|||
|Powers||Freeze blast is replaced by Stone Blast|||
|Powers||There are 113 Supernatural Power Upgrades|||
|Collectibles||There are 64 Audio Tomes|||
|UI mistake||The achievement list again refers to the "Upgrades" menu as "Upgrade Store". In previous games, the term "Upgrade Store" has never been used in-game.|||
|Achievement||Epic Jump Quest returns as "Epic Flight Quest", and requires flying from the roof of Snowball's Chance to Sinterpol HQ.|||
|Flying||While flying seems fairly easy in gameplay demos, flying "continuously for 60 seconds" is considered an achievement.|||
|Powers||Wall running returns|||
|Locations||Blackbeard's ship is named the "Queen Anne's Revenge"|
|Features||Those "We at Volition think that you're too stupid to read a map so here is a huge arrow you can't miss" on-screen GPS arrows return.|||
|Zin||There are no Zin in New Hades|
|Water||"Water" has joined the list of removed features. All place which would normally have water, such as fountains, have lava. The lava is solid, but you can still "warp to shore". "Sinking" occurs in a scripted animation, it is not possible to "swim" in it, or "sink" in it in normal gameplay.|
|God||God is voiced by Nathan Fillion|
|PS4 Bait and Switch||The PS4 version does not contain Gat out of Hell on the disc, it only has a download code for it.|
|Cause of Death||The actual cause of death of many of the "dead" characters in hell is not addressed in-game. Obviously, everyone who was still alive at the time the Earth was destroyed would have died, but there is absolutely no confirmation when certain characters died.|
|Health Pickups||Health pickups return, and look identical to Saints Row IV. Why are there Virtual-Reality-style health pickups in real life Hell? (Is this more evidence that they never escaped The Simulation?)|
|High Fryer||Despite the hype intended by releasing a promo image for it, the "High Fryer" Ferris Wheel is not usable in any way.
Gat/Kinzie can stand on the top of it as if it is a solid ring.
|Advanced Flight Controls||The "Advanced Flight Controls" option has been removed. It is not possible to look around while flying - unlike previous games.|
|Optional Tutorials||After unlocking the Summon power, there is a "Summon tutorial" prompt... so it looks amongst the things which have been removed, there has finally been an improvement!|
|Cutscenes||The majority of exposition takes place in still-image flip-book-style cutscenes. Acquiring "Lucifer's Halo" happens off-screen. Gat and Kinzie's clothes, and hell-tattoos, change off-screen without explanation.|
|Endings||There are 5 endings. Chosen through a interactive flip-book.
Regardless of which ending is chosen, Gat and Kinzie are stuck in hell after the credits, and there is no way to return to The Ship, recruit Homies, or interact with non-hell characters.
|Voice Commands||There appear to be a number of Gat out of Hell voice command Easter Eggs.
However, Volition claimed in the recent livestream that voice commands were only for Re-elected, and not Gat out of Hell. Can someone with an Xbox One or PS4 confirm that there are no Voice Commands for Gat out of Hell?
