The new revival of Saints Row was announced earlier today as an Epic Games Store exclusive, and to coincide with that, the recent Saints Row: The Third Remastered is now available for free. The offer is valid until September 2, and if you take it now, it will stay in your library in perpetuity, or as long as digital video game stores exist.
While the series has always been crazy, Saints Row: The Third was the first to get weird, culminating in the ridiculous superhero theaters of Saints Row 4. It’s a good open world crime game with a weapon that shoot mind control octopuses at your opponents, which no other game I know of has done.
Saints Row is the third game to be available for free on the Epic Games Store this week, following Void Bastards and Yooka-Laylee, with Automachef to follow next week.
Morgan got a first look at the upcoming Saints Row game, which will be available on the Epic Games Store on February 25. “A new main cast and a new town certainly refresh things a bit, but overall Saints Row looks very similar to previous games,” he commented. “Volition promises that the shooting is still arcade, the driving is better than ever, and the weapon selection is vast.”
