A handful of video games feature the President of the United States, but no title throws you into the role like developer Volition’s upcoming Saints Row IV.

In the open-world crime game, you can create whatever character you want to act as commander-in-chief, but what if you want to retell the story of an actual president? You could spend hours in the character creator trying to make one yourself, or you could preorder the game from GameStop in the U.S. or EB Games in Canada to get access to four pre-created presidents.

Saints Row IV publisher Deep Silver revealed today that if you preorder the game from one of those participating retailers and pick it up within 48 hours of release — which is Aug. 20 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC — then you’ll get free access to the Presidential Pack downloadable content.

This DLC includes the faces and corresponding outfits for George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

This preorder bonus is in addition to a free costume pack that gives players access to an Iron Man-like suit called The Iron Rogue and a Wonder Woman-like outfit called Queen Amazonia.
