The Saints Row series is known for its bizarre plot, over-the-top action, and crazy weapons. It's a lot like Grand Theft Auto to be honest, except it makes no sense. With that said, the games are amazing and one of the best entries in the franchise, Saints Row: The Third, is getting remastered for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Today, publisher Deep Silver revealed more details.
The press release said the following.
We are excited to announce that Saints Row: The Third Remastered will come to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on May 22, 2020. A much-requested addition to the Saints Row lineup, we can't wait to bring that special brand of Saints mayhem to your current generation consoles. Expertly handled by Spearsoft, the remaster has transformed Steelport's environments, character models and visual effects, along with injecting enhanced graphics and incorporating a new lighting engine to really make the streets of the beloved city shine. Saints Row: The Third Remastered will include all add-ons, remastered of course, that came with the original release of the game nine years ago, so players will get the full, enhanced, package.
Hopefully, the remaster that's launching on May 22 means that there's a new game in the works. We need a new installment in the franchise because it's been so many years! Are you excited for the game? Let us know.
Over the top
Now even crazier
Saints Row: The Third Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, in an urban playground that is yours for the taking. This is your city. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, steel port the original city of sin, has never looked so good.
