A new remastered version of the popular Saints Row: The Third video game is coming to Microsoft’s Xbox One on May 22nd and gamers can now pre-order it digitally via the Microsoft Store on the web or console.
Saints Row: The Third originally came out way back in 2011 on the Xbox 360 and a number of other platforms. The game received praise from gamers and critics for its whimsical creativity and open-world play style. This new version appears to be essentially the same game but with a significant visual upgrade bringing it up to modern standards with support for 4K and HDR when played on an Xbox One X console.
Here’s the full game description:
Saints Row®: The Third™ – Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. This is your City. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns.
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute. Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fight against a highly-trained military force by your lonesome in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.
