Saints Row fans have a brand new game in the series to look forward to, as was announced yesterday during Gamescom 2021’s Opening Night Live. The first trailer that was shown was focused more on hyping the game up with some cool CGI as opposed to gameplay.

Today, the developers shared gameplay footage and commentary to help give players a better idea as to what they can expect from the game. Check it out!

If you’re intrigued by the news that a new Saints Row game is coming, whether that’s morbid curiosity or genuine curiosity, we have a video we think you may want to check out. We’ve embedded the video above, and in it, you can catch actual gameplay footage from the new game. 

The footage explores the new location of Santo Ileso, while also showing off some of the game’s characters. The developers also explain the direction they’ve taken a bit more, and why they decided to take the direction they did.

In the video description, the following information on the new Saints Row game can be found:

“Welcome to Santo Ileso, a vibrant fictional city in the heart of the American SouthWest. In a world rife with crime, where lawless factions fight for power, a group of young friends embark on their own criminal venture, as they rise to the top in their bid to become Self Made.

Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created; the unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive, and wingsuit your way to the top.

Some things that stand out to us from how the game is described is that Santo Ileso will be larger than locations in previous Saints Row titles with Santo Ileso featuring “nine unique districts” with plenty of activities to partake in within those districts. 

The gameplay looks interesting, and we’re curious to see how Saints Row fans will react as more information on the game is shared. While we wait to hear more about the newest Saints Row game, we’re curious to hear your thoughts. What do you think of the gameplay that was shown?
