Reading, 6 April 2020 | 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 22 May 22.

Every weapon has been remodelled, 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.

Story:

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.

Key Features:

The Full Package, Remastered – With enhanced graphics, improved lighting, reworked environments, and visual effects, Steelport and The Third Street Saints have never looked so good.  

City of Sin – Disrupt and dismantle the Syndicate stranglehold on weapons, cybercrime, and criminal rackets.  Discover the secrets of Steelport, where there is action on every street corner, for better or, more likely, worse.

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 more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.
