Will Saints Row be on Steam?
The release of Saints Row, Volition's upcoming reboot of its original action-adventure game that first debuted in 2006, is right around the corner. As such, for those interested in playing the game on day one, here is a breakdown of whether or not Saints Row will be available on Steam.
Will Saints Row Be on Steam?
Unfortunately, it does not appear that Saints Row will be offered on Steam for the foreseeable future.
As reported by PC Gamer in August 2021, Deep Silver has confirmed that Saints Row will be a timed Epic Games Store PC exclusive.
While the exclusivity period is unspecified, these types of deal usually last at least a year long.
This is a pretty unexpected move for fans of the series considering Saints Row 2 (2008), Saints Row The Third (2011), Saints Row IV (2013), Saints Row: Gat out of Hell (2015) and Saints Row The Third Remastered (2021) are all available on Valve's storefront.
Saints Row is set to release for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Epic Games Store) on Aug. 23, 2022.
Goodbye Stilwater, Michigan, hello Santo Ileso.
With the tagline "self made" it appears Saints Row will be reimagining how the 2006 original enabled players to start their new criminal empire.
From Newbie to Boss, with what is being hailed as the series' "most extensive character creator ever," the 2022 reboot invites players to take over the fictional American city Santo Ileso, the "biggest and best Saints Row playground ever" spread across nine unique districts surrounded by the vast Southwest Desert.
As shown in its announcement trailer, the Saints are made up of a new group of four young guns who aren't afraid to go over the top with revolvers, rocket launchers, miniguns and fast and furious driving action.
