Saints Row: The Third Remastered has been revealed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

Deep Silver has announced that Saints Row: The Third Remastered is coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 22nd, recreating the classic for modern gaming systems with a slew of graphical upgrades. 

For starters, this new version of Saints Row: The Third will release with all 30 of the original games’ DLC items, offering gamers the complete experience, while also offering gamers higher fidelity visuals than the game’s original PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions. 

This remaster comes thanks to the developers at Spearsoft, who have “transformed Steelport’s environments” by bringing a new lighting system to the game, enhanced character models, higher-end graphical effects and more. Based on the trailer, we can see higher resolution textures, enhanced draw distances and other graphical enhancements. 

Like the original, Co-op will be a major element of Saints Row: The Third’s remaster, and on PC, Deep Silver has confirmed that the game will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Right now, the game is available to pre-order on PC for £34.99. 


Saints Row: The Third Remastered

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.

Weapons of Crass Destruction – It’s one thing to defeat your enemies. It’s another to humiliate them. Hover jets, human cannonball cars and outrageous melee weapons are all part of the fun.

Crazy Character Customisation – Create the most outlandish characters ever seen, from washed-up celebrities to maskless ninja pirates. Inside every sinner, there is a Saint. Who will you become?

Over The Top Co-op – Fly solo or play online with a homie. Give freefall skydiving a try, landing in your partner’s flaming pickup as you make a desperate run toward a heavily armed Syndicate base. Steelport is always more fun with a friend.

All DLC included – All three expansion mission packs and 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.
