ONE new trailer because the Saints Row gives players a clear look at who the new Third Street Saints are, who they’ll be fighting, and what the setting for their aggressive criminal takeover will look like.
While the upcoming Saints Row game of the same name will keep some things the same, the reboot is set to introduce more changes to the franchise. Most of those differences are not in the gameplay, but in the setting of the game and the cast of characters.
Saints Row will take place in Santo Ileso, a city located in the southwestern United States. In the trailer, the developers working on the game emphasize that this new language is super important, as it fits the game’s overall theme (and weirdness). The game’s map will be the largest of any title in the Saints Row series, but it’s unclear how much of that terrain will belong to the city of Santo Ileso and how much of it will be surrounding membrane. Notwithstanding, Saints RowThe new scene of the city seems like a fair start compared to Steelport, the city players will come across Saints Row 3 and 4.
Along with a new setting, players will be greeted by a new cast of characters in the Saints Row reboot. Johnny Gat and Shaundi are nowhere to be seen and are replaced by Eli, a money-laundering genius; Nina, an outing and talented driver; and Kevin, a wild shooter with a passion for cooking. Naturally, players still wear The Boss’s shoes, which they can customize as much as they like.
In preview for Saints Row, developer Volition has confirmed that while much of the game will be new, it will still feature the same Saints Row skeleton. The game will include the same quirky arsenal of weapons, stylish vehicles, and ways to earn money, including mini-games like Insurance Cheat.
Saints Row is set to release on February 22, 2022 for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
