Saints Row: The Third Remastered is launching on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 as a free upgrade, Steam and GOG releases also confirmed
The update brings improvements to the graphics, putting it on par with a PC running at high settings. Lighting, texture resolution and other visual effects have been improved, along with dynamic 4k resolution targeting a stable 60 fps on PS5 and Xbox Series X. On the Xbox Series S, players can choose between 1080p at 60 frames in performance mode, or an upscaled 4k image at 30 fps in beauty mode. All consoles will also make use of the new SSDs to dramatically reduce loading times.
PlayStation 5 owners will additionally receive support for Activities, and can even turn the highlights on the Dual Sense controller to a subtle Saints purple glow.
While the enhanced version will be available to purchase, existing owners can take advantage of these upgrades free of charge, with Free Upgrade and Smart Delivery on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S respectively.
When I reviewed Saints Row: The Third Remastered, I had this to say, “If you’ve never played Saints Row The Third, the remaster still holds up as an excellent game. The core gameplay remains true to the original, which for fans is exactly what you want. It may not be as deep or refined as modern games, but that’s ok. What Saints Row The Third: Remastered does deliver is a healthy dose of humour, and engaging, entertaining gameplay. It’s a testament to how much fun it is when a thirty-hour playthrough feels short.”
The update releases for consoles on the 25th May 2021, while the PC version launches on Steam and GOG on the 22nd May 2021.
