Saints Row 3 officially announced, detailed

Saints Row: The Third coming in Q4

THQ has officially announced and detailed the third game in its Saints Row series.

The title will launch in 'Holiday 2011' - or the Christmas period for Brits - and has been developed by Volition.


The game pits the 3rd Street Saints up against a new gang in town, the Syndicate. These clowns want respect from 3rd Street - but it isn't forthcoming and the two end up in a long-haul battle.

"Saints Row: The Third puts you on top of the world, right at the beginning of the game, with all the perks that go along with being the head of an elite criminal organization," said THQ's core games boss.

"There's no delivering pizza, no shuttling family members about in a long series of taxi missions. Instead, you take all the power of the Third Street Saints and you take the world by storm."
