On Wednesday, developer Volition revealed a new direction for Saints Row, its mayhem-fueled open-world gangster game series. Volition announced that the new Saints Row would be a reboot with all-new characters and a new location. This will allow the series to move from supernatural ludicrousness back to street-level absurdity.

It didn’t show much gameplay on Wednesday. Volition and Deep Silver, the publisher of Saints Row, showed Friday what Saints Row would look like beyond pre-rendered trailers. The game’s new, younger and more experienced criminal cast is shown in a seven-minute preview video. The other gangs’ players will join the Boss player character. The new trailer also shows Santo Ileso as a Las Vegas-style town in the American Southwest.

You’ll get to see the new bad guys, Marshall Defense Industries, mercenary company, and Los Pateros (tough guys who bring sledgehammers and guns to a gunfight), as well as Volition developers talking about what’s happening and why they decided to restart Saints Row following 2015’s Gat Out of Hell. In which you literally fight Satan.

It remains to be seen how strongly Saints Row fans will embrace the reboot’s changes. Based on the reaction to the first trailer, opinions are divided. However, Volition insists that it will not change its mind. On Twitter, the studio responded to a fan who complained about the new direction, saying, “We are not backing down on this game. It’s new; we get it. This is a shock reaction to a restart like no other.

The new Saints Row will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC via the Epic Games Store, Xbox One and Xbox Series X starting February 25, 2022.
