On the evening of August 30, gamers around the world will eagerly tune in for the much-anticipated announcement of the PlayStation Plus September game line-up. This month’s reveal is especially significant as it features the 2022 edition of Saints Row, a highly popular open-world action-adventure title. The game will be accessible to anyone subscribed to Essential, Extra, or Premium tiers of PlayStation Plus.
Originally released on August 23, 2022, Saints Row was developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver. The game is compatible with a variety of platforms, including PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC. Notably, the PC version was exclusive to the Epic Games Store for a year before becoming available on Steam on August 24, 2023.
Set in Santo Ileso, a fictional town in the southwestern United States, Saints Row offers an immersive open-world experience. Players step into the shoes of the “Boss” of the Saints, a gang comprised of young misfits. The primary objective is to establish and expand a criminal empire, taking on rival factions like the Panteros, Idols, and Marshall in territorial disputes.
Saints Row has often been compared to the iconic Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series, largely due to similarities in gameplay mechanics. This 2022 version serves as a reboot of the Saints Row franchise, refreshing its identity while retaining core elements that fans love.
The Saints Row title, along with other yet-to-be-named games, will be available for download between September 5 and October 3, starting at 11:00 a.m. French time. As for what other titles will accompany Saints Row in the PS Plus lineup, details remain elusive.
After August’s offerings received less-than-stellar reviews, particularly from the Dealabs community, PlayStation Plus subscribers have been eagerly waiting for September’s selection. The inclusion of a high-caliber game like Saints Row is likely to rejuvenate interest in the subscription service.
For those still contemplating a PS Plus subscription, now may be the ideal time to jump in. With a headline title like Saints Row, September promises to be an exciting month for gamers everywhere.
