Deep Silver and Volition have officially announced that Saints Row The Third Remastered will be releasing on May 22nd. The remastered edition will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will remain exclusive to Epic Games Store for PC for a period of one year.
Apparently, this remaster will not be just another haphazardly coat of paint. According to the publisher, every weapon has been remodelled, every car has been redesigned and a vast proportion of the city has been retextured, With around 4,000 assets reworked, the complete update has been expertly handled by Sperasoft. It has transformed environments, character models and visual effects, enhanced graphics and incorporated a new lighting engine. In addition, the team has remastered all three expansion mission packs and more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.
Saints Row 3 originally launched back in 2011 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game was a new direction for the series that had a huge role in the removal of the ‘GTA Clone’ tag.
