Speaking about the return of Saints Row, Volition chief creative officer Jim Boone says:

“This full reboot is the most fun and exhilaration we’ve packed into a Saints Row experience to date. The iconic new location brings so many exciting opportunities to delight players – whether they are long-time fans of the series or jumping in for the first time.”

Here’s how publisher Deep Silver pitches the game:

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 Defense Technologies 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. 

Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created; the unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive, and wingsuit your way to the top.

Express yourself and unleash your inner Saint, with the most advanced suite of customization tools yet seen in an open-world game – make your character, your car and your crew your own.

Dive into epic gunfights and highspeed chases, and witness outrageous only-in-Saints-Row moments in an original story that charts the Saints’ remarkable rise to power. Enjoy the freedom of playing the entire campaign with a friend through seamless untethered co-op play, where you can both push the limits of your gang and create your own gameplay moments together.

Saints Row is available to pre-order now in three editions: Base, Gold and Platinum. Each comes with various extras, including a free copy of Saints Row The Third Remastered.
