Saints Row, which came into being in 2006, started off as a series involving a Michigan gang that aims to take under control the fictional city of Stilwater. Saints Row 2 was then released in 2008, a huge hit and was appreciated even by the critics. An attempt to take over the GTA series was highlighted in 2011 with The Third, which then started exhibiting a serious crime drama. In a twist, Saints Row IV depicted the gang members as superheroes in the virtual alien world’s set up.
Saints Row Reboot
The fresh Saints Row will have a new set of characters, and the story would progress to create a boss for their gang. The other three prominent characters in the story are Eli, a Black entrepreneur; Neenah, a Latina car lover and the gang’s driver; and Kevin, an Asian DJ. Apart from these main gang characters, no other character will feature directly in the story plot.
The new Saints Row will also have a fresh setup of Santo Ileso. It has a large, open space with different cities, like the large map of “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas”. With the return of the video game, the initial dynamics of the game involving gang territory fights also returns.

It is reported that Santo Ileso will have nine unique districts, each one with its own theme and culture. The El Dorado district appears to mimic Las Vegas, while Monte Visto looks a lot like Palm Springs.
Saints Row will launch on the new PlayStation, Xbox series, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It also supports cooperative play, and the developers say the entire storyline will be playable with friends. The tagline “Self Made” points towards the beginning of the Saints, which might bring a cheer in for the users.
