Originally released in 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC and remastered in 2020, Saints Row: The Third was one of the highlights of the open world franchise. The game, which started out inspired by other sandbox games like GTA, built its own identity as a much more absurd and comical version where anything can happen. In the third game, the gang of Saints is already at its peak after the events of the previous titles and now faces an enemy empire called Syndicate, with all the resources the player wants.

The gameplay is similar to most open world games, in which the player can go anywhere and carry out missions, but Saints Row: The Third takes that one step further in terms of freedom. The player can completely customize their character, with an arsenal that even includes swords shaped like genitals. At any time it is also possible to order vehicles to make your life easier, including fighter planes.

The new Saints Row promises to be a reboot of the franchise, a little less exaggerated than the more recent chapters, but still spectacular. The game will be inspired by films such as John Wick and Baby Driver (In Rhythm of Escape) and will give players the opportunity to explore the city of Santo Ileso, inspired by the southwestern United States.
