Check it out above!
Original Story: Saints Row: The Third Remastered is getting, well, an Xbox Series X|S remaster. What feels like the Inception of upgrades, the free update to the next-gen version will be arriving on May 25 with an array of new features.
The next-gen version will ensure the game is using the full horsepower of the Xbox Series consoles to their full advantage. Two modes will be available, including a Performance Mode running at 1080p with 60FPS support, and a Beauty Mode, which locks the framerate at 30FPS to achieve 4K visuals. While the update mentions both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, there's no specific details for the latter, but all consoles are said to get "much faster loading times."
Excellent news has just dropped, Saints! On May 25, Saints Row: The Third Remastered will bring the mayhem to Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5. This version will also be free to all current owners of the game, and will equal the ultra settings on PC.
Improvements made to the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 version include a framerate boost to 60 FPS and dynamic 4K resolution, whilst Xbox Series S players can choose between Performance (60 FPS 1080p) and beauty (30FPS, 4K) modes. Of course this version will also take advantage of the SSDs in the new consoles to serve much faster loading times.
The Xbox One X already did a great job of running the game, maintaining a steady 60FPS. It would sometimes drop during more hectic moments, but for the most part was a solid remaster. With the Xbox Series X|S power and SSD, we can only imagine it will become more fluid as a result. So if you've been holding off on the game, now could be the perfect time to dive in.
