Earlier this week we got our first look at raw Saints Row gameplay, courtesy of Game Informer. As part of the publication's coverage, some more gameplay has been released, this time focusing on driving and combat.
Unlike the first bit of footage, which focused primarily on exploration, it's an all-out war here. Not only are we treated to tons of fast-paced vehicular combat, but there's also a bit of emphasis regarding on-foot gunplay.
Much like the first bit of gameplay that was shown, the reception is divided once again, with 2,000 upvotes and 1,600 downvotes at the time of writing. Some of the same criticisms as before are rearing their head, such as an overabundance of health bars, but one of the latest complaints is in regards to the mini-map.
A common thread throughout seems to be based around the lack of detail within the map itself, with many hoping it will be more detailed once the full release comes around. It's important to note that the gameplay on show is pre-alpha footage, so expect some deviances when the full game launches.
That being said, it looks hugely different to past instalments in the franchise, while still retaining the over-the-top nature of it all. Whether it can stick the landing is an answer will get next year, when it launches for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on February 25, 2022.
