As Saints Row IV takes place in a simulated version of Steelport, the main character will be able to learn a few abilities that he wouldn't be able to in the real-world version. You will eventually stumble upon clusters of data that will be able to give the POTUS some superpowers. These range from the ability to jump very high to running at a very high speed.
On your adventure to try and destroy the simulation that was created, you will run into very powerful enemies called Wardens. These enemies can take a lot of damage before they are finished, but the good thing about them is that the player can absorb their power upon its defeat. One example is the ability to freeze people and enemies with your Blast ability.
There have been eight superpowers revealed thus far and it's not clear if there will be more. The following pages will give details about each one of them.
