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 fictional American city Santo Ileso, the "biggest and best Saints Row playground ever" spread across nine unique districts surrounded by the vast Southwest Desert.
Just how the new title's criminal action and humor will look to stay true to the series, its story will also be focused on the birth of the Saints.
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.
