The following Saints Row recreation is getting formally revealed subsequent week and based mostly on the few particulars revealed thus far it’s a model new recreation, not a remake, and is in reality (presumably) a full-on reboot of the favored open-world franchise.
Geoff Keighley first teased the new Saints Row reboot via a tweet on August 20, hinting that it is going to be absolutely revealed throughout Gamescom Opening Night time Stay. Shortly after that, the official Saints Row Twitter account started tweeting in regards to the new recreation. Over on the Saints Row website, the positioning has a picture of a brick wall lined in graffiti and the phrase “Rebooting” is plastered on it alongside a white fleur-de-lis aka that image you see in all of the video games.
Over the past 24 hours or so, the official Saints Row Twitter account has been busy replying to principally each fan who responds to them, which is sweet I assume, however appears tiring too. A number of particulars have been shared through these replies. For one, this isn’t a reboot or a remastered version of a previously released game. The truth is, Saints Row devs Volition at the moment have no plans to do any extra remasters.
One other small element I noticed is that this in all probability has nothing to do with Agents of Mayhem, based mostly on a tweet the place the official account says it would take greater than that recreation’s reception to kill Saints Row. For these unaware, AoM was an open-world motion recreation that targeted on tremendous highly effective brokers in a futuristic metropolis and was set in one of the timelines created at the end of Gat out of Hell, a spin-off Saints Row recreation the place Gat goes to Hell to save lots of the boss and is ready after the occasions of Saints Row IV, the place the Earth is blown up.
Huh, yeah, I get why this entire sequence wants a reboot. Issues are a bit difficult!
We first heard about a new Saints Row game back in 2019, when it was confirmed Volition was engaged on the subsequent title within the sequence. The final predominant recreation launched within the franchise was 2013’s Saints Row IV.
For these excited a few new Saints Row recreation, and I’m a kind of folks, the reveal will occur throughout Gamescom Opening Night Live on August 25 at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET.
