The video walkthrough above shows off some of the new abilities that Johnny Gat (whom you'll get to play as for the first time) has access to. Flying is shown off as part of a new version of the Hellblazing activity, which is largely the same as the version in Saints Row IV, except that here you'll be literally flying around the city. Later in the video, we see Gat summon imps who attack enemies and can be detonated like explosives.
As for weapons, we get to see the one that caught attention at PAX Prime in August--a mobile, rocket-launcher-equipped armchair--and some others. These include a gun that shoots a locust plague and a giant hammer that summons a lightning bolt from the sky, which somehow is rendered comparatively mundane because you also have a gun that shoots locusts.
Gat Out of Hell is a standalone expansion for Saints Row IV, and it shows: It's easy to pick out animations identical to those in IV, for instance. Still, if what you're looking for is more action along the lines of that game, this may be right up your alley.
Alongside an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of Saints Row IV, Gat Out of Hell will be released on January 27 for $20 (or $50 in a bundle with IV). It'll also be available on its own for $20 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
