How To Download Boss Factory

Saints Row Boss Factory is a free download available for PC via Epic Games, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. Hop on your preferred platform and search it up – you can’t miss it.

Once downloaded, start it up to be presented with Saints Row’s robust character creator, allowing a multitude of expected options and surprising options alike. Adjust body types, height, hair design, and colors, and off-beat options like prosthetic limbs, body hair, and shiny, metallic skin tones. Add some flare to your boss with makeup patterns, scars, and other facial oddities to really stand out on the streets of Santo Ileso.

Of course, you’ll need some silly, nonsensical weapons and wacky vehicle designs to really complete the boss package, which Boss Factory allows you to customize as well. Grab a set of colorful rims and slap on a new paint job to cruise the streets in style, and transform ordinary objects into weapons to show rival gangs who’s boss.

Once you’re finished, you can save and share your character through Boss Factory with a unique code given upon completion. Take a look at the Saints Row Boss Factory page to browse other players’ creations and grab their character codes to use for your own – they even work across platforms.
