Last month, we saw a listing popped up on an online retailer – Gamefly for Saints Row: The Third Remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The listing was taken down shortly after it went live on the site, but it did reveal the potential release date for the remastered game that was – May 7, 2020.
Since then, we haven’t heard anything new on whether this is actually happening or it was just a fake rumor… until now. Earlier today, we’ve found out that Saints Row: The Third Remastered has been officially rated by ESRB.
According to the rating, the remastered version of the game is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The full rating description from ESRB can be found below:
“This is an open-world action-adventure game in which players assume the role of a criminal syndicate known as the Saints. As players attempt to take over a fictional city and exact revenge on a rival gang, they engage in driving and combat missions to progress the storyline. Players use machine guns, shotguns, swords, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill rival gang members. Players can also attack pedestrians, and in one mission, players shoot at police and civilians to create chaos in a rival gang’s territory. One scene prompts players to run over a certain number of pedestrians within a given time; another sequence allows players to dispatch enemies by putting grenades in their mouths. Players can also use chainsaws to hack at enemies, resulting in small chunks of flesh and large splatters of blood. Damage from certain guns can result in decapitation. During the course of the game, female characters are sometimes depicted in outfits that reveal large amounts of their breasts/cleavage or buttocks; characters are occasionally depicted nude, though their nipples and/or genitalia are obscured by blurry pixels. In one sequence, players can walk through an erotic club containing several phallic sex toys and sexual contraptions. Some game environments and dialogue contain drug paraphernalia or other references to drugs (e.g., marijuana leaves and water bongs on a table; a radio DJ telling a caller to try heroin). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*ck” appear in the dialogue.”
We still don’t have any official confirmation on the release of this game. So, until then, take it with a grain of salt.
Saints Row: The Third was originally released on November 15, 2011, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows.
