One of the craziest sandboxes of the PS3 and Xbox 360 generation is back with Volition, who after the fiasco of Agents of Mayhem wants to return under its jurisdiction with its star franchise. Although the change of look and tone of the new Saint’s Row Many fans have not liked it, in the studio they are confident with what they are capable of achieving, warning that, among other virtues, they will offer the “deepest character editor in the entire franchise”.
This has been stated in an extensive thread on Twitter from Volition, from which they have also detailed a good handful of other features. His statements about this editor are interesting, since the editor of Saint’s Row has always been full of possibilities, and anticipate that we can literally create, whoever we want. We will also have the possibility to edit their voice, with 4 male and 4 female models, although they have announced that they will talk more about this soon.
Lots of more details
Once again, in Volition they were asked about the reasons behind this change in plot, characters and tone after the crazy Saint’s Row III and IV. Obviously, from the study they believe that after the events of the fourth installment, the stories of the previous characters are complete and “there is no where to take it or where to expand the world. We wanted to create new characters and a new world.”
In addition to all the above, in Volition they affirm that there will also be a large number of garments to personalize not only our protagonist, but also the members of the band. Likewise, also vehicle customization will be “huge”, with more options than ever.
But the thing does not stop there, and it is that they have ensured that “Saint’s Row is always better with a friend!”, They begin, answering affirmatively to a question about cooperative mode. “We have confirmed that there will be co-op for the full game. Better yet, it will work across generations, so PS4 players will be able to play with PS5 players, for example.”
Saint’s Row is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series, and PC next year.
