It looks like we have a remaster of\u00a0<em>Saints Row: The Third<\/em> heading down the pipeline. The title has been leaked by the ESRB, who added a posting for the game to their website earlier today.\r\n\r\n<em>Saints Row: The Third\u00a0<\/em>was released a bit less than nine years ago back in November of 2011. Playing from a third-person perspective, this chaotic sandbox of an action-adventure game won a great amount of praise for its ludicrous gameplay, outlandishly hysterical writing, and general polish. Taking place five years after the events of\u00a0<em>Saints Row 2<\/em>, the third installment has a much lighter and more humorous atmosphere while still happily switching to a more serious tone when necessary.\r\n\r\nAnd, surprising nobody, the ESRB gave it an M rating in their leak for Blood and Gore, Drugs, Intense Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Content, and Strong Language.\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/twitter.com\/SaintsRow\/status\/1246097843351404544?s=20[\/embed]\r\n\r\n"Players use machine guns, shotguns, swords, rocket launchers, and grenades to kill rival gang members," the ESRB writes in a rating summary that sounds almost like an advertisement for the game. "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."\r\n\r\nThat's definitely a pretty solid summary of\u00a0<em>Saints Row: The Third<\/em>. The absurd and often brutal title often blurs the line between humor and tragedy, often having you commit what is objectively genocide to complete a mission, and making it a joke more often than not.\r\n\r\nWhile everyone is happy to see the well-loved title getting a remaster, others are a bit curious as to why. The game is less than nine years old, and while technology has certainly moved on enough that a remaster will elevate the game, it doesn't necessarily\u00a0<em>need<\/em> one. In fact, the game is currently available on most current platforms, being playable on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. It's even recently been ported to Switch, so access certainly isn't a problem.\r\n\r\nSome are wondering why Volition isn't spending their time on another\u00a0<em>Saints Row\u00a0<\/em>game, as the last one was 2015's\u00a0<em>Saints Row: Gat out of Hell<\/em>, a title that got mixed reviews at best. Others are curious why the third title is getting a remaster whereas there doesn't seem to be one for the first or second, which are both much older and also highly acclaimed.
