Available for Xbox One, Xbox Series S / S, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and PC
As teased by Geoff Keighley last week, Saints Row is the next video game series to get a reboot. The newest title, Saints Row by developer Volition, will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S on February 25, 2022.
Saints Row titles have a reputation for being more cartoon-inspired than Grand Theft Auto. The franchise started as a ripoff of GTA. It quickly became a funny parody of many franchises, including Mass Effect and Michael Bay’s Armageddon. The reboot seems to remove some more extravagant references but keep the core gameplay that values fun over silly stuff like “reality.” The reboot appears to have retained another hallmark of the original franchise, a diverse cast.
Santo Ileso is the setting for the game. A CGI trailer showcased desert roads and a Las Vegas-like area. Your customizable protagonist and three main characters are the story’s protagonists. Together, they build a criminal enterprise and fight three opposing factions within the city.
It seems like there is a new player in the Saints Row franchise. Fortunately, we don’t have too long to wait to get the game.
