Here is the first trailer that was unveiled during Gamescom’s Opening Night Live (via IGN):
The game is a reboot, which means that its story will be stand-alone and will not coincide with any of the other games in the series.
Cited by Inverse, the chief creative officer of Deep Silver Volition said:
“This is a chance for us to go back to our origins and get back to that more contemporary crime angle, that we love and what Saints Row is known for.”
Players of the previous Saints Row games were literally taken all over the planet to navigate and negotiate missions successfully – even hell! This left the developers with no choice but to completely reboot the game.
“It was a great opportunity for us to tell the story we wanted to tell and most importantly tell a story that is contemporary that we think the people will relate to. What that means is, that could be everything from imagining the kind of debt that people deal with these days, student loans, the kinds of things you want to be able to do for the American Dream; imagine if you were in that world and you could form your own criminal empire.”
Details regarding gameplay are yet to be disclosed. But if these comments are anything to go by, we could be in for an exciting addition to the series.
We will update this section as soon as more information is revealed in the coming months.
At this time, no details have been disclosed regarding pre-order details. But fear not, we will provide all of the latest information to you once it is available.
