After a very long hiatus, the Saints Row series is finally back – though unfortunately not with the number five yet. Instead, THQ Nordic announced today that another fan-favourite entry in the series, Saints Row: The Third, will finally be remastered and arrives on May 22nd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Saints Row‘s official Twitter account revealed the news today that Saints Row: The Third will be returning to the gaming world in the form of a remaster, and will come to current-gen consoles and PC. Unfortunately, there was no mention of a Nintendo Switch port. However, the remaster will arrive fairly soon, coming next month on May 22nd, 2020. Along with the announcement, a trailer was also attached, showing the upgrades between the original and the remaster.
The Third is known for its over-the-top antics, crazy physics-defying action, and crude humour that literally takes the series into weirdly unexpected places (for anyone familiar with Saints Row IV, you know what I’m talking about). Luckily, The Third doesn’t fully embrace the nonsensical and still retains some elements of realism, but you’ll still be able to cause unprecedented carnage and mayhem across a fun and lively open world.
The official website for the game provides a description:
“Steelport, the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns. The Third Street Saints are at the height of power and they are yours to control. This is your city. These are your rules.”
Saints Row: The Third Remastered launches on May 22, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
