Saints Row gets a flashy new trailer during The Game Awards, giving fans their best look yet.
Few video game franchises are as notorious as Saints Row, once considered a GTA clone that evolved into something much more explosive. While the franchise hasn’t received a major new entry in a few years, that should change next year. August 2022 will see the release of a Saints Row reboot, and fans got their first real look at The Game Awards.
The trailer shows many new elements that fans can expect Saints Row, including character customization, combat, and a wingsuit. The game has a lot in common with the Saints Row games from the past, although it certainly looks a lot fresher than previous games. The trailer is more dynamic than the last games, with a lighter city than Saints Row 4 had.
In many ways, Saints Row looks like just cause, especially with the addition of the wingsuit. It’s clear that Saints Row wears his inspirations on his sleeve, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The game clearly leans into its action-heavy elements without sacrificing the weirdness that made up previous entries.
If anything, the Saints Row the reboot seemingly balances modern elements with the mechanics that defined Saints Row 3 in 2011. If Volition manages to pull this off, fans should get what they hope for from the reboot.
Saints Row will be released on August 23, 2022.
