I?m going to steal a page from Benny Rose?in that I?m going to profess a hardcore love of an IP, but reveal that I have dropped off in recent years. Saints Row, the open world franchise that started out chasing GTA and eventually bloomed into an absurd open world title focused on fun and mayhem. I played the four mainline titles and even Gat out of Hell, I even own Agents of Mayhem. However I just let 2022?s reboot pass me by?maybe I?m at an age where I?m no longer interested in putting on the colors? Well with today?s announcement of the game?s first DLC, The Heist & The Hazardous, I might have to say, Ah shit?here we go again.
Taking place in a completely new district of Santo Ileso, Sunshine Springs. The Heist & The Hazardous has you doing what open world protagonists do best, taking revenge on a person who has slighted you! The three new story missions will have you staging a heist that will make pompous movie star Chris Hardy rue the day he crossed the Saints. This will be the first of three planned expansions that is set to release as part of Saints Row?s expansion pass.
What? You don?t own the Saints Row expansion pass? Well don?t worry you?ll still be able to roam the new district as Sunshine Springs update is free and available now. This update will let you explore the region and it will be packaged with a slew of enhancements and fixes.
I?m hopeful that some of the fixes will warrant a migration down south. Let?s hope these releases will make gamers give the game a second look. Cause it?s hard to keep a Saint down!
