Ultimate escapism: The Saints are back and slicker than ever before!
Sydney, 22nd May 2020 | Saints Row® The Third™ Remastered is out now on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC (via the Epic Games Store).
Arguably the best Saints Row in the series, the game is now even more polished thanks to a complete overhaul expertly handled by Sperasoft; it has transformed environments, character models and visual effects, enhanced graphics and incorporated a new lighting engine.

Revisiting Saints Row The Third gamers will find themselves yearning for a bygone era. Spark nostalgia and join the Saints gang in Steelport – remember Johnny Gat, Shaundi and Pierce? – on missions such as Tank Mayhem, Eye of the Tiger and Professor Genki for hours of raucous gameplay.
Originally released nine years ago on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, this is the first time Saints Row has appeared on the current gen of consoles, opening up the notorious Saints series to a whole new gang of gamers. With multiple interwoven storylines, the game takes a different route depending on decisions made; seasoned Saints players may even find their storyline takes on a new arc, resulting in never seen before missions.
Saints Row® The Third™ Remastered gives you control of the Saints at the height of their power, and you live the life to show for it. This is your City. These are your rules. Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns.
Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.
Refusing to kneel to the Syndicate, you take the fight to Steelport, a once-proud metropolis reduced to a struggling city of sin under Syndicate control. Take a tank skydiving, call in a satellite-targeted airstrike on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fight against a highly-trained military force by your lonesome in the most outlandish gameplay scenarios ever seen.
The Full Package, Remastered – With enhanced graphics, improved lighting, reworked environments, and visual effects, Steelport and The Third Street Saints have never looked so good.
City of Sin – Disrupt and dismantle the Syndicate stranglehold on weapons, cybercrime, and criminal rackets. Discover the secrets of Steelport, where there is action on every street corner, for better or, more likely, worse.
Weapons of Crass Destruction – It’s one thing to defeat your enemies. It’s another to humiliate them. Hover jets, human cannonball cars and outrageous melee weapons are all part of the fun.
Crazy Character Customisation – Create the most outlandish characters ever seen, from washed-up celebrities to maskless ninja pirates. Inside every sinner, there is a Saint. Who will you become?
Over The Top Co-op – Fly solo or play online with a homie. Give freefall skydiving a try, landing in your partner’s flaming pickup as you make a desperate run toward a heavily armed Syndicate base. Steelport is always more fun with a friend.
All DLC included – All three expansion mission packs and more than 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.
