'Saints Row 3' (ALL) to Go in a New Direction

Saints Row 2 offers vastly expanded customization options, a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, new vehicles, sandbox tools and toys as well as both online co-op and competitive multiplayer. A few weeks back, we revealed that a third installment in the Saints Row franchise was in the works, but today, Associate Producer Dan Sutton revealed that it would be taking the next title in "a new direction."

Saints Row 2 is set years after the original Saints Row in a Stilwater both familiar and strange. The explosive conclusion to Saints Row has left the player wounded, betrayed and thirsty for revenge, and now it's time to take back the city that has forgotten him. A sequel to the first open-world title on next-generation consoles, Saints Row 2 features all new customization options, including gender, age, voice, crib and gang customization. The sandbox just got larger with a totally transformed and expanded city of Stilwater, offering all new locations to explore with new vehicles, including motorcycles, boats, helicopters and planes. Saints Row 2 will be playable online in 2-player co-op through the entire single-player campaign or in the all new open-world competitive multiplayer mode never before seen in the genre.

Saints Row 2, developed by Volition, Inc., is currently available for PS3, Xbox 360, and the PC version will be coming at a later date.
