Saints Row Platinum Edition is an action-adventure game developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver. It is a reboot of the Saints Row series, and the fifth main installment, following 2013’s Saints Row IV. It was released on August 23, 2022 for Microsoft WindowsPlayStation 4PlayStation 5Xbox OneXbox Series X/S and Google Stadia. Set within the fictional city of Santo Ileso, loosely based on Las Vegas, the single-player story follows a group of four friends who start their own outlaw gang called The Saints, which they subsequently expand by seizing power from other criminal organizations in the city.

The game is played from a third-person view and its open world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Players can fight enemies using a variety of firearms and other tools, and call in non-playable gang members to assist them. Similarly to previous Saints Row titles, players control the gang’s leader, nicknamed “the Boss”, who features highly customizable traits. Outside of the main story, players can freely explore Santo Illeso and engage in several different side activities. A cooperative online multiplayer mode is also included, allowing two players to play through the single-player campaign together while progressing in their own game.

The developers of Saints Row intended for the game to return to a mixture of drama and comedy that had been present in earlier games in the series. Following its announcement in August 2021, Saints Row was met with mixed reactions from fans, with some expressing concern for the game’s tone. It ultimately received mixed reviews from critics for a large number of technical issues, the writing, and elements of the gameplay feeling dated. Due to the game’s reception, Volition’s parent company Embracer Group announced that Volition would become part of Gearbox Entertainment.

Similarly to previous installments in the series, Saints Row is an open world action game with third-person shooter elements where players complete missions—linear scenarios with set objectives—to progress through the main story. Outside of missions, players can freely roam the game’s world and complete optional side activities. The game’s setting, the fictional city of Santo Ileso, is broken down into nine districts, which players will have to work towards taking over in the name of their gang, The Saints, earning certain benefits in the process. After taking over a district, players are able to use empty lots found there to launch illegitimate businesses with legitimate fronts to help finance and benefit the gang.[1] The city includes more vertical areas with tools that the player will be able to use to take advantage of that.[1][2] The driving gameplay has been improved from previous Saints Row games to encourage the use of vehicles as weapons themselves alongside guns.[3]

The game includes a detailed character creator for the player-character, including selection of gender.[1] In addition to their character’s appearance, players are also able to customize their weapons and vehicles. There is a drop-in cooperative multiplayer mode which allows two players to play together at the same time, with each player using their own custom Boss character and progressing in their own missions.

Synopsis

Setting

Saints Row is set in the fictional city of Santo Ileso, located in the American southwest and modeled after Las VegasNevada. At the start of the game, the city is controlled by two warring gangs: Los Panteros, a gritty vehicle and fitness-oriented gang that runs smuggling and protection; and the Idols, an anarcho-communist gang focused on clubs and nightlife. A third faction, Marshall Defense Industries, an international private military corporation known for its high-tech weaponry, is also based in Santo Ileso, and attempts to eradicate all gang presence in the city while increasing its own influence.

The player character, known simply as “the Boss”, is a former member of Marshall who forms their own gang, The Saints, with the help of their roommates: Eli, a struggling investor and business entrepreneur that plans most of the gang’s operations; Kevin, an aspiring chef who formerly worked as a DJ for the Idols and handles the execution of the Saints’ heists; and Neenah, an art major and ex-mechanic for Los Panteros who serves as the gang’s driver.[1][3][2]

Plot

On their first day of work for Marshall Defense Industries, the Boss apprehends a notorious criminal known as “The Nahualli”, but is denied a performance bonus by their strict superior, Gwen Theriault. Nevertheless, they return to their apartment to celebrate their success with their friends and roommates: Eli, Kevin, and Neenah. Although affiliated with rival groups (Kevin with the Idols and Neenah with Los Panteros, the four remain more loyal to each other, and often engage in criminal activities together to afford their rent and student loans.

The Boss later helps Marshall recover a stolen Mayan artifact known as the Hummingbird Codex from a Los Panteros smuggling convoy, narrowly evading the gang’s leader, Sergio Velez. Company founder Atticus Marshall praises the Boss for their performance, and promotes them to head of the museum’s security ahead of an unveiling gala for the Codex. The Idols and Los Panteros both attack the gala to steal the artifact for themselves, with the former succeeding. Although the Boss saves the life of Marshall board member Myra Starr, they are fired by Atticus for failing to protect the Codex.

The following evening, Kevin and Eli attend an Idols party at a local resort, which is attacked by Los Panteros. Eli is injured, and one of the Idols’ leaders is killed by the four after Kevin refuses an order to kill his friends. With both the Idols and Los Panteros now targeting them, the group resolve to start their own criminal organization. They use an abandoned church as their headquarters, and adopt the moniker “The Saints”.

The Saints take on the Idols and Los Panteros to gain territory, and to spite Marshall, the Boss helps Eli defeat Gwen in her favorite LARP tournament. To cover the operational costs, the group decide to rob a shipment of Federal Reserve cash onboard a Marshall-protected train. The Boss breaks The Nahualli out of Marshall’s private prison to assist them with the heist, and they form a bond with him. Los Panteros also try to rob the train, but the Saints deal with them (with The Nahualli personally killing Sergio) and escape with the money. The Boss and Kevin later steal the Hummingbird Codex back from the Idols’ base of operations aboard a yacht, killing two more of the gang’s leaders in the process.[a]

Marshall’s legal counsel approaches the Saints and informs them that the group’s front companies have been legally declared Marshall subsidiaries, due to the Boss having signed a non-compete agreement upon their hiring. The Boss and Eli storm Marshall’s headquarters to demand the return of their companies, but only find Myra Starr, as Atticus has already fled the building. Myra reveals her longstanding desire to usurp Atticus as the chairperson of the company, but explains that if Atticus were killed, the role would pass to his next of kin. Myra and the Boss collaborate to tank the company’s stock price by using a Marshall tank to cause destruction in the city, triggering a vote by the board on whether to replace Atticus with Myra. The vote comes to a tie, which is broken when the Boss votes using a momentary seat granted by Myra. Atticus is fired (or potentially killed by the Boss), and Myra uses her new position to return the Saints’ assets before parting ways with them amicably.

Several months later, during a party hosted by the Saints celebrating their successes, The Nahualli returns to accept the Boss’ invite to officially join the gang. However, while alone with the Boss, The Nahualli betrays and stabs them before explaining his jealousy of the Boss’ life and his desire to replace them. He then buries the Boss alive while his men attack the party and kidnap Eli, Kevin, and Neenah, whom The Nahualli subsequently forces to act as his friends. Surviving the burial, the Boss tracks The Nahualli to a vacant casino, where they kill him and rescue their friends. The four then toast to their friendship while enjoying the sunset on the rooftop and their control over Santo Ileso.

Development

THQ Nordic announced in August 2019 that Volition was developing a full entry in the Saints Row series.[4] Parent organization Koch Media, owner of the Saints Row intellectual property, said they were giving the developer time and space to make the game they saw fit. The series had a rocky history in the years prior to the reboot’s development. The prior full game in the series was Saints Row IV (2013), which was followed by a standalone expansion titled Saints Row: Gat out of Hell (2015). A series spin-off, Agents of Mayhem (2017), sold poorly and led to layoffs at Volition.[5] Saints Row was officially announced as a reboot of the franchise at the August 2021 Gamescom,[6] which was met with divided opinion on social media for not retaining the “feel” of prior series entries.[7][8]

The reboot was intended to pull away from the “wacky” tone of Saints Row IV and later games in the series, instead bringing back the balance between comedy and seriousness that Saints Row 2 had. Volition’s Jeremy Bernstein compared Saints Row IV to Moonraker of the James Bond films series, having gone so far outside the realm of reality that they need to reel it back in.[9][2] Studio development director Jim Boone added that the current social climate had outgrown the tone of prior Saints Row games.[7] Some of the more lewd elements like the giant purple dildo that could be used as a weapon were cut for this reason.[1] The game’s developer, Volition, looked to action films as reference points for what they wanted players to experience, including the feel-good vehicular movement of Baby Driver, the brutal, stylized combat of John Wick, and the extravagance of Hobbs & Shaw, “that Saints Row sort of flavor”.[10]

Saints Row was originally set to release on February 25, 2022, for PlayStation 4PlayStation 5Xbox OneXbox Series X/SWindows and Stadia platforms; however, it was later delayed until August 23, 2022.[9][11] The PC release is exclusive to the Epic Games Store digital marketplace.[12] A post-release expansion pass will include at least three pieces of downloadable content.[13] A pre-order bonus and digital-only special editions include additional cosmetic content.
