Saints Row trailer shows off the game’s extensive customisation features
Volition’s series reboot will be released in August
Saints Row developer Volition has released a new trailer focused on the game’s customisation features.
The five-minute trailer below shows how players will be able to customise characters, weapons, vehicles, their HQ and more when the open world game is released later this year.
Publisher Deep Silver announced the Saints Row series reboot at Gamescom last August.

Simply titled Saints Row, the fifth game in the series is headed to Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4 and PC via the Epic Games Store.
It sees players join a group of criminals named the Saints, who are trying to make it as a new crime syndicate in a south-western American region called Santo Ileso.
As in most previous Saints Row games, there are also three rival gangs in the region, each with their own different style and characteristics: Los Panteros, The Idols and Marshall Defense Technologies.
Saints Row was originally scheduled to arrive in February, but late last year its release date was delayed to August 23, 2022.
“Our priority is to create the best Saints Row game yet and, if we released on the original date, it wouldn’t be up to the standards we’ve set ourselves, and that you’re expecting and deserve,” Volition CCO Jim Boone said at the time.
“The team just need more time to do our vision justice – we’re doing some fine tuning and there won’t be much change in the game outside of overall quality and polish.”
