Saints Row reboot officially revealed, launches early next year


Saints Row is back, in the form of a series reboot. Developer Volition has announced a new Saints Row game for previous and current generation platforms--Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC via the Epic Games Store. It takes the franchise back to the beginning, where you'll be able to create your own character, start out as a petty criminal, and rise up the ranks, eventually taking over the city of Santo Ileso. Co-op will also be a major feature, along with plenty of vehicles and weapons to play around with. The game will launch on February 25, 2022.

The last time a Saints Row game released was back in 2013, with Saints Row IV, which was moderately received critically, and incorporated superhero powers into the gameplay. 2011's Saints Row: The Third also recently received a remaster and port to the Nintendo Switch.

Saints Row arrives February 25 2022. Witness the birth of the Saints. In a world rife with crime, where lawless factions fight for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made. Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created; the unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive, and wingsuit your way to the top. As the future Boss, with Neenah, Kevin, and Eli by your side, you’ll form The Saints – and take on Los Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall as you build your empire across the streets of Santo Ileso and battle for control of the city. Ultimately Saints Row is the story of a start-up company, it’s just that the business The Saints are in happens to be crime.

FUCK YES FUCK YES FUCK YES FUCK YES

After playing 4, I've so much longed for a game like SR3. The powers were cool, but it all felt a little tacky in my opinion. I thought the series was done after Agents of Mayhem, so this makes me VERY happy.

Is this a trailer for the next Watch_dogs game or the next Fortnite season?

Sarcasm aside, it really feels like they are trying to aim for a different demographic for this reboot. I can care less personally, just hope this does not kill the franchise if it fails in market.

Hence why I wrote "/s" to convey that my message was satire. Relax, dude.

Oh it'll probably do very well. If there's one thing we've learned from the casualization and/or shaking up of games to appeal to the mainstream it's that the new games sell really well. I'm pretty much done with Zelda, Resident Evil, and Final Fantasy at this point.
it's DmC all over again.... sigh...
At least DmC: Devil May Cry got horrible reception. There's a pretty good chance this will get good reception and be the future of Saint's Row.

background noise is awful & irritating.
had to mute the video and don't even bother to finish it.

GotR, SR 3 & 4 did a great job getting rid of rap crap.
