Saints Row story trailer offers an explosive overview

Tom West - August 16th 2022

Saints Row will be in our hands this time next week, and to help get you excited for your trip to Santo Ileso, Volition has released a story trailer for the game — and it's filled with explosive Saints style.

We're now a week away from Saints Row's launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Stadia, and PC via the Epic Games Store, and Volition has dropped a trailer to help you prepare for the chaos that's to come.

Saints Row story trailer

In Saints Row, the reboot of the franchise, you'll step into the shoes of a character of your own making, with a future that will see you lead the Saints to control the entirety of the fictional South-western American city of Santo Ileso. The Saints don't actually exist at the beginning of the game, so it'll be up to you and your group of friends to build an empire from, literally, the ground up.

While this entry is ever-so-slightly more down-to-earth than the more recent games in the series — we're looking at you Saints Row: Gat out of Hell — Santo Ileso will still offer the same chaotic action we've come to expect. From full-on gunfights with rival factions, gliding over the city's skyline via a wingsuit, crushing vehicles in huge, customised trucks, or many other fun activities, it's still looking like a wild ride.
