Saints Row bases much of its strength on the city of Santa Ileso, the playing field where players will navigate in this long-awaited reboot. Since its unveiling, the team has repeatedly reiterated the relevance of its streets to its conception, a city that twists the clichés “of the Southwestern United States.”
The gameplay, published by Game Informer, gives us clues about what to expect. We refer above all to the clear differences between the districts, which will shape the personality of the factions we will face. Whether on a motorcycle, SUV or rocket backpack, you will have different ways to take the city to your advantage.

We will find the Panthers, the Idols and the Marshall, from whom we will have to seize the throne. “We have paid as much attention to detail as possible. We wanted to create a new world full of things to discover, in which everyone could feel included.
