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.
