Larkspur, Calif. (April 20, 2022) - Publisher Deep Silver along with developer Volition today revealed the extensive suite of customization features coming to Saints Row when it launches later this year on August 23. Saints Row’s customization options were showcased in a presentation hosted by Mica Burton.
 
The presentation was also accompanied by a standalone trailer, which future Bosses can view here: https://youtu.be/1tzVN-p9bQw
 
From asymmetrical facial customization to prosthetic limbs and absolutely zero restrictions based on gender, Saints Row’s unique and expansive customization options bring player choice to new heights. Anything that players envision for their Boss can easily be brought to life with the new customization tools at their fingertips. That’s not all, though. Weapon and vehicle customization have also been expanded in the newest entry in the Saints Row franchise. Ultimately, in Saints Row, player choice comes first.
 
Set in the fictional vibrant city of Santo Ileso, Saints Row is a complete reboot of the series and combines all the action, crime, and humor you’d expect from the series into one over-the-top, wingsuit-enabled package. The game’s extensive customization suite is Volition’s most powerful toolset to date and is best in class. How your Boss looks as you take over the city’s criminal underbelly is entirely up to you.

Saints Row will launch August 23, 2022, on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Pre-order the game on your preferred platform now: SaintsRow.com/preorder
