Purple Will Make a Return!
Volition has revealed more details and answered several fan questions about the Saints Row Reboot. Personally, I’m pretty excited to jump in and go through another Saints Row game. It still sounds like Saints Row to me, even if it is a little different.
Of all the new things revealed, I’m most excited to know that purple is coming back. As the Saints rise to the top of the criminal world, the purple becomes more prominent. they also revealed some more information about the Saints themselves.
Here is some info on the Saints:
- Neenah is the best getaway driver in the business and has a long association with Los Panteros. She wants out of the gang life but leans into it for the sake of her crew. Neenah has had a deep-seated love of cars all her life and knows them inside out. When it comes to getting her hands dirty, Neenah is a natural.
- Kevin is part of the Idols when we first meet him, he knows how to get attention and make some noise. He’s their top DJ and people pleaser who knows the guy who knows the guy; he loves people, is super loyal to his friends and he’d do anything for them. Loud and brash, he’s also a thrill seeker.
- Eli is a business mastermind, making money is more important to him than the moral issue of how that money is made. Eli is driven and determined, and doesn’t mind too much if a few people get hurt along the way. He came to Santo Ileso to make his fortune as an entrepreneur, to build a business for himself. He just didn’t realize at the time that the startup he was going to build was a criminal empire.
- Finally, the Boss. Regardless of your look you are the ultimate murder machine, that shoots first and asks later. The Boss is over-confident, and doesn’t do well following orders. Ultimately the Boss is you – you get to decide who you want to be and do things you want to do, become Self Made and form the new Saints. Of course the customization options allow you to literally make the Boss how you want them to look and speak too.
Volition also revealed that Saints Row will have the largest array of customization of any Saints Row game. Layered clothing makes a return; players can choose from 8 different voices and vehicle customization that will be stored in your garage.
Alongside all this, Volition also confirmed that the Saints Row Reboot will have untethered co-op, and it spans cross-gen. You will be able to have a friend drop right in and out, and you can play the entire campaign co-op if you want to.
Now, this Saints Row is a reboot. Some things are going to be different than the last games. However, it very much sounds like Saints Row, and it sounds like a good time to me.
