After a trophy list leak, Deep Silver officially announced this Saints Row: The Third Remastered will arrive on PlayStation 5 on May 25, 2021. Owners of the game on PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade the game to play for free on PS5. The game will also launch for PC on Steam and GOG on May 22, 2021.
A few days ago, a list of trophies appeared for the PS5 version which almost confirmed the game’s release on next-gen consoles. The trophy list also confirmed that the game will also include all three DLC packs released for the original game: Genki Bowl VII, Gangstas in space, and The problem with clones.
The remaster would work with graphics quality equivalent to the “High” settings on PC. A high performance game engine also means that lighting, texture resolution, and visual effects will also see a big improvement. Gamers will also be able to enjoy the game at an increased frame rate of 60 frames per second with dynamic 4K resolution.
Thanks to the SSD (Solid State Drives) included in the PlayStation 5, loading times will see a significant reduction. Additionally, the PS5’s DualSense controller will glow in a subtle Saints Purple while playing the game. Saints Row: The Third Remastered will also include full activity card support on the PS5.
Saints Row: The Third Remastered originally released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One consoles in 2020, just over a year ago. A remaster of the 2011 open-world adventure game Saints Row: the third, the game also offered graphics updates for eighth-generation consoles. However, the PlayStation 4 version was limited to 30 fps and had some bugs and animation issues. Developer Sperasoft has been working on the PlayStation 4 version, as well as the upcoming PlayStation 5 version.
