Is Saints Row (2022) a Reboot or a Remake?

Saints Row (2022) is a reboot of the popular Saints Row series. The series, which debuted in 2006, includes 5 separate Saints Row titles. The last to be released was Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, released in 2015.

The franchise follows the exploits of the 3rd Street Saints, a criminal gang located in the imaginary south-western town of Santo Ileso. There are plenty of opportunities in the open world game to engage in urban warfare as the gang struggles for power against rival gangs. This includes using different weapons and vehicles to overtake precious territory within the city of San Ileso.

The game features a character creator, allowing gamers to be highly specific when engineering their own custom protagonist. The new title also features multiplayer capabilities, that were absent from previous editions in the franchise's history.
