Saints Row is on the way and the initial response from fans of the series has not gone down well.
At the time of writing, the game’s official announce trailer has amassed 44,000 dislikes and just 22,000 likes on YouTube, with many hugely unhappy about the direction that the series is heading in.
Main characters such as Keith David, DJ Veteran Child, Maero and Kinzie Kensington have been replaced with an entirely new line-up in what appears to be a game that is aimed more towards children – which is the last game that they released back in 2015 really was not.
Despite the backlash, Volition stuck to their guns and insisted that they will not back down, which appears to have only made this worse.
However, something has been spotted that has taken the eyes of certain segments of the gaming community.
Saints Row Pre-order Bonus
Saints Row will be released in three editions – Standard, Criminal Customs and Notorious as physical copies, or Gold and Platinum as digital.
All versions other than standard will come with these cool looking bonus items, adoring the famous purple colours that pay homage to the previous games.
The Saints Custom Convertible and the Saints Custom Stab Jacket will be offered up to those who pre-order early, with the suggestion that layered clothing could be making a return to the franchise.
As a result, this attracted a wave of positive comments on Reddit – with many fans excited about the possibility of some old features returning.
