A remastered version of the 2011 action-adventure game was announced on Monday complete with a teaser trailer. It is heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 22.

As a remaster (rather than a remake), you can mostly expect the same core gaming experience as the original – just with better graphics and other tweaks that improve the gameplay experience. PC Gamer attended a preview session for an early cut of the game and noted the much-improved environments, enhanced lighting and heightened pedestrian and traffic density.

The remaster will include all three mission packs and more than 30 DLC items, we’re told.

Something we’re not quite as excited about, as least for console gamers, is the fact that the remaster will be locked at 30 frames per second. It’s disappointing that a nine-year-old game isn’t getting a frame rate bump, even on the PS4 Pro / Xbox One X, but it is what it is.

Interested parties can pre-purchase now for $39.99.

I bought the latest Saints Row a while back and it is arguably the worst game I remember paying for. No wait, I did buy Sword of Sodan (sp) for Sega Genesis.

The $39.99 asking price for this is ridiculous at best. Good luck to them.

SR 4 was lame, it was just 3 at night with superpowers. 3 was incredible, I consider it a classic. But yet another "remaster?" *sigh* ...but maybe it will be fun to revisit for a while.

THEY SHOULD REMASTER 2!!!!!!

I feel fans of Saints Row would prefer SR2 remake the most. It's rated the best by the player base and the original has more bugs than it doesn't. SR3 graphics are still good enough for today.

This seems to be a bit too soon. they could have waited for the next gen consoles to release something even better.
