Plus, add more pedestrians and police roaming the streets. As per our review
of the Saints Row
reboot, we called the game "a disappointment, especially if you’re a fan of the series". Alongside more pointed criticisms, it's great to see Volition addressing a whole number of issues to make the game, well, more fun.
Which is exactly what Saints Row needs to be. Here's the update from Volition on what to expect when the patch drops this month.
Co-op has been a huge priority for us. Significant effort has gone into ensuring that this is working as intended – including connectivity, mini map issues and proper credit of player rewards. Fun with a friend in Santo Ileso should be a much smoother experience going forward!
Challenges & Collectibles
Another hot issue in the community has been challenges and collectibles – these should now track properly, and will be awarded to you retroactively if you have already completed the requirement, so make sure you update your game to get that all important 100%!
Quality of Life & New Features
Of course, we have been looking at your feedback and implementing our first set of Quality of Life changes and new features in Saints Row including:
- Combat encounters that are better balanced, more fun and more rewarding in terms of progression
- More Saints roaming completed districts, as well as introducing new district tiers
- Loads of new ways to manage your incredible fleet of vehicles, including more slots to use and 7 new garage locations
- You should see more pedestrians and police, collectibles should be easier to find, and you’ll be able to escape notoriety levels more easily
- A voice pitch slider! One of the most requested features, you’ll be able customize your Boss’ personality even further
- Haptic Feedback for PS5 DualSense controllers is being added back in for weapons
- Plus tons more improvements based on your feedback…
We will of course release full change notes alongside the update, get comfortable, because it’s a big one!
It certainly sounds like a tonne of stuff addressing many concerns with the game, so kudos to the team for sticking with it.
