A new open world for Saints Row
If it’s a game of Saints Street It must be an open world, right? And all the madness and action takes place here, in a weird and wild town in the desert: Santo Ileso. It was a big change for us because it is a very different place. The desert is majestic with its relief and its colors. Red rocks, sandy terrain, famous sunsets, postcard landscapes come to mind. It has a lot of history, culture and diversity behind it. The city has a cool motto “Keep Santo Strange”. It is an ideal expression for Saints Street
New characters are coming
We now come to the heart of the visit. The Saints themselves, who are these four friends who come together and give each other a chance and create their own criminal empire? We have created a group of characters that everyone would love to invite to their home every day.
- The boss or the boss, it’s not cut and the best part is that it’s you. Some kind of charismatic killing machine.
- Eli – He wants to build something special. He prefers a hostile takeover to the outbreak of hostilities.
- Neenah – His way of thinking is very centered on his family. She is passionate about vehicles and wants to be the best driver in the world. A crack.
- Kevin – You came to Santo Ileso in search of your place. He’s shirtless and we don’t know why. He wants to be a cook on television.
“Starting from scratch we were able to give more soul to the game and that is the most important thing. You can identify with them. I wouldn’t do these things to pay for my degree, but I understand his motives at all times.
Who are we facing in this new Saints Row?
Who would be our bad guys without the real bad guys? Criminal gangs are their own territory in Santo Ileso. This is what separates you from the control of the city in which you want to rule. What are they talking about ? Each enemy faction approaches you from a different approach. They have different looks and styles from each other.
- Marshal is an international company. He happens to be based here in Santo Ileso. They are strategic assassins. They use the latest technology. They are designed to reduce and imprison you.
- The Panthers – These are all muscle and physical power. They are part of Santo’s soul. They are brutal and tough and prefer melee attack and heavy weapons when doing their best. If you take on the Panthers, you are up against their strength.
- Los Idols – They are something completely different. They are anarchists with their own style. They see themselves as icons of the new world order. They are a cult of personality. What they lack in combat sophistication, they make up for in numbers. So, they try to overwhelm the player.

It’s the kind of decisions I can make and the way I can play. The most important: to take advantage of the experience of Volition, of the creativity that we have to try new things. With this open world where you can achieve them. All of this resulted in an exciting game of Saints Street“.
“We started this journey in search of the new saints, and we concluded that it was time to tell a new story, set in a new city, about a group of friends wanting to create a criminal empire in their way. But in the end, we found out that the game itself is all about being your own boss, being authentic: yourself. To start from scratch ”.
