Deep Silver and Volition have announced during Gamescom Opening Night Live that the Saints Row franchise is getting a reboot, simply called Saints Row. The announcement, which follows a tease from a few days ago, comes in the form of two Saints Row trailers – one cinematic and one teaser focused on gameplay. Described as the “biggest and best playground” ever made for a Saints Row game, the title will take place in the world of Santo Ileso with all of the antics the series is known for. You can expect to play Saints Row when it comes to PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S on February 25, 2022. Read a quick synopsis below:
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.
Beyond showing off a unique story, the Gamescom Opening Night Live event revealed that Deep Silver and Volition’s Saints Row reboot will bring co-op, customization, lots of guns, and the opportunity to build a criminal empire. See how Saints Row is going to the Wild West in the cinematic and gameplay trailers below.
