With just a week to go before its release, Volition has now released an action-packed story trailer for its Saints Row reboot, giving fans of the franchise a first glimpse of the game’s plot. Set in the new, fictional city of Santo Ileso, you’ll play as a gang member who leaves their old crew behind to start a new gang called the Saints. As the group’s boss, you’ll take charge in a city-wide power struggle against rival gangs Los Panteros and the Idols as well as a private military corporation called Marshall Defense Industries.
Much like its predecessors in the series, you’ll have access to an immense library of character customizations, creative weapons and high-octane vehicles, all at your disposal as you gain more control of Santo Ileso. Unfortunately, previous characters in the franchise won’t be making a return — at least for now — but it seems there’s plenty in store for both old fans and newcomers alike with the studio’s reboot.
