Saints Row to get a "beast" update for this month

The Saints Row reboot hasn't gone as well as the developers expected and they're probably hoping the upcoming update will help fix that.

Deep Silver Volition is releasing a new update for Saints Row and it's going to be a big one.

Saints Row Beast Update This Month
Saints Row disappointed fans who were expecting to enjoy a GTA-like experience.

According to the Patch Hub, the game's November update will add plenty of features to the game. Specifically, the studio describes it as a "beast" in the statement, saying:

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience while we got this update ready for release. It includes over 200 fixes and quality-of-life updates, so it's a beast!"

It appears the developers are well aware of the documented co-op problems Saints Row is experiencing and has suffered from since its launch. Deep Silver claims it's put in "significant effort" to make sure that you and your friends can sow chaos in Santo Ileso with relative peace.

In addition to prioritizing co-op, Deep Silver is improving the Challenges & Collectibles feature so that they track better. Players who've completed previous challenges will have their awards given to them retroactively.

Here's a short list of everything that's coming to Saints Row in a few weeks:

  • "Better balanced, more fun and more rewarding" combat encounters
  • New district tiers and more Saints in completed districts
  • New garage locations, vehicle slots, and vehicle-management ways
  • More pedestrians and police roaming around
  • Easier collectibles to find
  • Tweaked notoriety levels
  • Voice pitch slider
  • DualSense haptic feedback

Judging by the looks of it, we can expect to see a massive patch notes before the update is out later this month.

An update or two could be exactly what Saints Row needs.

The highly anticipated Saints Row reboot didn't meet audience expectations and was seen as a disappointment by critics. What's more, the Embracer Group CEO wasn't happy with the sales of the latest Saints Row game, especially after Grand Theft Auto 5 ended up outselling the game the month it came out.
