Here’s Your First Look at Saints Row The Third Remastered

Saint’s Row, the weird parody of a game that was once designed to take on Grand Theft Auto has spun completely out of control as of the launch of Saints Row IV. But, Saints Row The Third is considered one of the best and now it’s about to come back looking better than ever before. That’s right, folks, Saints Row The Third has been remastered and is set to launch on May 22, 2020 after a healthy remastering.

Unlike the more recent Saints Row titles, the third installment of the series was a little more grounded and puts you in the position of re-establishing your gang as the world’s top organization. Like GTA V, you’ll get to us an arsenal of firearms and weird vehicles, but you also get to enjoy some of the more interesting melee weapons. The Remastered edition that launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in May is the complete version of the game with all DLC and expansions included in one package.

Take a look at the video and images, and just tell us the game doesn’t look better than ever. Part of the remastering process was to update visuals with an all-new lighting engine and all-new reworked textures. According to the developers, this game was chosen to be remastered because it’s still a popular game and appeals to people that aren’t really into the whole GTA V gameplay or the outrageous storyline of the later games in the Saints Row series.

“We think of Saints Row: The Third as a masterpiece, and from our point of view, it’s where the series really found itself. When we went back into this game, we had one major consideration, and it was that we really wanted to bring that [game] back in a particular way, and not just as a simple remaster with 4K support. It had to have modernized graphics and technologies, to pump up that engine to make it more interesting.”

However, as is the case with a lot of remastered games – think Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 – some concessions have to be made. Fortunately, Saints Row The Third still has online co-op, but the split-screen local co-op mode has been removed. Console ports of the remastered game will also be capped at 30 FPS, while PC gamers will get to enjoy a full 60 FPS.
