THQ announced at GDC today that a second sequel in the Saint’s Row franchise will be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC this upcoming holiday season.
Developer Volition, Inc. has designed Saints Row: The Third to put you at the top of the game right from the beginning. You won’t have to perform mundane tasks like pizza delivery to build up reputation and cash. All the perks necessary to “take the world by storm” are part of being the head of an elite criminal organization. Think along the lines of starting as the king in Fable 3.
Saint’s Row: The Third is about protecting the brand name of the Third Street Saints whom have become so recognized that you can go buy Saints energy drinks and dolls in any store. A rival gang, The Syndicate, wants a piece of the pie and you’ll have to keep them at bay by any outrageous means necessary.
More Saint’s Row: The Third details will be revealed in the April issue of Game Informer magazine.
