Saints Row (8/23/22) - PS, Xbox, Epic

Obligatory cinematic trailer!



Witness the Birth of The Saints – Play through an action blockbuster original story full of criminality, extraordinary scenes and signature surprises laced with humor.

Discover the Weird, Wild, West – Dive in to Santo Ileso, the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever, spread across nine unique districts surrounded by the vast, majestic beauty of the Southwest Desert.

Build Your Criminal Empire – Take over the city block by block, wage war against enemy factions and tighten your grip on the streets with ingenious criminal ventures.

Fire Guns. LOTS of Guns – Shoot revolvers from the hip, fire and forget with a rocket launcher, or obliterate up close using melee heavyweights, complete with brutal takedowns. A vast variety of familiar and exotic weapons, all customizable, and all deadly fun.

Take to the Streets and the Skies – Blast through urban and desert environments in any one of the cars, bikes, planes, helicopters, VTOLs, hoverbikes, hoverboards, go-karts or equip your wingsuit to swoop around.

Unprecedented Customization – Create the Boss of your dreams, with the most extensive character customization suite ever seen in the series, then complete the look with incredible options for weapons and vehicles.

Seamless Co-Op – Experience everything on offer with a friend at any time, via fully untethered drop-in / dropout co-op, skipping the need to take either of you out of the outlandish action. Play nice together, or play all new pranks on your team mate. After all, who's the Boss now.

2 days after my birthday, Happy Birthday to me!

Saints Row is the game series that really should have made me realize that I'm trans.

I always played with a female Boss and spent way too much time driving around to all the different clothing stores and picking out the perfect outfit(s).

I didn't really like Gat out of Hell or Agents of Mayhem basically because there was no character customization.

The cinematic trailer looks fine.. It looks like the gameplay could be fun.

I'll have to see more, but I was hoping for it to look more like the older Saint's Row.

Saints Row: The Woke Version

But in all seriousness, it looks decent but I'm not expecting much.

I bet very few have played the first Saint's Row game. I don't think I have.
The novelty of open-world GTA rip-offs has pretty much worn off for me (cough, Mafia, cough), but I might still check this out sometime if it gets good reviews.

I've pretty much played them all but found the last original to be too over the top. I found the first few to be fun as hell and I'll plan to get this... now if it's more "woke", I'll probably pass.

I played 1 and 2 and loved them. Never tried the ones after because I heard they were just too over the top. I'd give this a chance

Getting kinda psyched for this actually. Glad they're toning it down a bit while still keeping the key elements. At least that's what it sounds like. I'm totally ready to dive in.

From what I've seen of it recently it doesn't look that bad.

Saints Row 2 was the best one and they'll never top it.

Looks fun, but also doesn't look as over-the-top crazy as the last couple.
Which could be a good thing, or not. Depends, I guess.

I'm taking it as a good sign, scaling back some, and I'm looking forward to see what they do.

I pre-ordered this yesterday and it's already on the way. It looks like it will be a lot of fun.
