We had some news that Saints Row: The Third was going to be heading to the Switch a while back, but now here we go with an announcement that will bring it over to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. This time as a fully remastered version of it all from Sperasoft at the request of Deep Silver. All to make sure that we all have the Saints back in our lives for a bit longer and with some better visuals that we may remember them to have had. It has been close to a decade since the original Saints Row: The Third dropped on us and now we can give it a go with all the new technology that the times have offered up. Just as we have been looking for oh so many titles out there.
Just as one would expect here, this version of Saints Row: The Third will have all of the usual updates that we get remasters. All of the textures and models have been updated to take full advantage to the lighting systems and other things added in to make sure it looks like a title that could have been made recently. Also, not just to the core part of the game but all of the DLC that we have seen out there for Saints Row: The Third too. All of which will be hitting these systems on May 22nd of this year. As long as there are no further delays due to all of the stuff going on right now.
Saints Row: The Third — Remastered Announce
Nine years after its original release, Deep Silver today announced that Saints Row: The Third has been completely remastered and will release on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and PC on May 22.
Every weapon has been remodeled, every car has been redesigned and a vast proportion of the city has been retextured; Saints Row: The Third has received a full makeover. With around 4,000 assets reworked, the complete update has been expertly handled by Sperasoft. It has transformed environments, character models and visual effects, enhanced graphics and incorporated a new lighting engine.
In addition, all three expansion mission packs and more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version have been remastered and are included in the package for hours of additional gleeful gameplay. The remastered edition will inspire new gamers and original fans to revisit the reworked city of Steelport and revel in the glorious world of the Saints.
Saints Row: The Third Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. This is your City. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs, and guns.
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.
Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fight against a highly-trained military force by your lonesome in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.
Were you hoping to see Saints Row: The Third to come to the current-gen systems or did you give it a go over on the Switch before now? Does this look like a whole new game to be enjoyed or will it just be with different looks and lighting? Could all of this mean that we have another new title coming to us all in the near future? Let us know what you are thinking down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all. For more on the Saints Row franchise, be sure to keep checking in here for all of that and much more.
