Deep Silver decided to reboot Saints Row, but the thug spirit of the series has not been lost along the way. The apocalyptic brooch of the last installment did not give too much room to be continued, but Volition has filled with crime, action and gratuitous destruction its spectacular alternative to GTA V with soup spoons. And despite the fact that we can dedicate ourselves to sowing chaos for no reason, there is a background thread. The most recent trailer for him actually focuses on him.
The essential: Saints Row, the 2022 video game, moves the character created by the player himself to the city of Santo Ileso, which is inspired by the American Southwest. A perfect environment to be enjoyed, conquered and destroyed, and between one thing and another, start our own career carrying out different criminal businesses. After all, one of the recurring themes of the game is that the player becomes a boss.
Ahead, a complete and modernized reinterpretation of the Wild West through an open world divided into nine districts surrounded by the desert of the American Southwest that Deep Silver herself has defined as “the biggest and best playground ever created in Saints Row”, which is no small thing. Our mission: to become “el Boss” of Holy Unharmed.
The Boss is the heart of the Saints; the glue that holds the band together. He is also the ultimate killing machine. He shoots first and questions later. He cocky, self-confident and nobody bosses him around. Ultimately, you are the boss: you decide who you want to be and what you want to do, to direct your own path to success and form the new Saints.
The new trailer, in fact, offers a glimpse of the rise of our character, the founding of the Saints and some especially tense encounters with our future rivals, the Marshals, the Idols and the Panthers

The good news is that as Deep Silver has planned its release so that we can now fully immerse ourselves in the character editor. And what a publisher!

After all, an extension of the spirit of the saga: we are offered lots of possibilities and we can basically do whatever we want.
From its first deliveries Saints Row has not settled for being an alternative to GTA, but he wants to bring more layers of madness and destruction to his formula. A declaration of intent that, judging by what has been shown in its history, will continue to be present in this comprehensive reboot. And it won’t be long before we take him at his word.
