Saints Row The Third returns in remastered form

Arguably the best-loved game in the series, Deep Silver’s Saints Row The Third is back, and this time the Full Package is fully remastered.

Full remaster

You remember Saints Row The Third, the game that went as crazy as the series had ever been, while keeping things in the same theme of the overall series. Personally, I like SR4 more, but that one was a total divergence.

I mean, it was pretty much pure sci-fi/comedy. Its predecessor SR3 on the other hand might’ve been 100% crazy, but it was also an open world crime caper. So very much in line with the original and SR2, just on a bigger scale and with tons more to do.

Recently we saw the game make a return for the Nintendo Switch, but Deep Silver isn’t stopping there. They’re about to bring the game back to retail one more time, but now with a complete remaster.

It’s set to hit the Xbox One, PS4, and PC on May 22nd, and is looking sharp.

Here’s what’s new:

  • 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 Customization – Create the most outlandish characters ever seen, from washed-up celebrities to mask-less 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 packs and more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version are included in this massive Saints package, all for the low MSRP of $39.99.
