Why is Saints Row free?

Saints Row: The Third Remastered is available for free on the Epic Games Store until December 15th because Epic is offering it as a limited-time promotion to build hype and attract players to the Saints Row series before the new Saints Row reboot game launches in 2023.

Hey friend! As a fellow gaming enthusiast, I wanted to provide some insider info on this exciting freebie. Get ready for an epic open-world adventure that lets you experience the best of Saints Row for zero dollars!

All About Saints Row: The Third

Saints Row: The Third originally launched in 2011 as the defining entry in the iconic Saints Row series. It delivered an over-the-top playground where you could rise up as a gang leader and take over the fictional city of Steelport however you wanted.

Now the recently remastered Saints Row: The Third – Remastered Edition is available on Epic including the base game and all 25 action-packed DLC mission packs. That‘s hours of additional content with insane weapons like the EMU and Rectifier for free!

Trust me, the Remastered version is the definitive way to play. You get enhanced graphics and visual effects that make Steelport look better than ever before. Driving, shooting, and exploring the massive open world is so much fun, especially with a friend in co-op.

Why Free from Epic Games Store?

Epic Games is on a mission to build its user base by giving away awesome free games every week. Past freebies have included huge hits like GTA V, so Saints Row is in good company!

The free promotion from December 1-15, 2022 lets PC players grab Saints Row: The Third Remastered for zero dollars – just need an Epic Games account. It‘s all yours to keep forever too!

Epic strategically chose Saints Row to build hype for the new Saints Row coming in 2023. By getting the remastered classic into players‘ hands now, it gets us excited for what‘s to come. Pretty smart move in my opinion!

Diving Into the Crazy Open World Fun

Let‘s get into the good stuff: the wild open-world gameplay Saints Row is famous for!

Steelport has so many diverse neighborhoods to explore like downtown, suburbs, industrial areas, and a red light district. I‘ve spent hours just sightseeing and causing chaos.

Missions let you take down rival gangs in incredible ways. Like using airstrikes to demolish strongholds or raining sewage on enemies from a helicopter 😂. The story is engaging but the fun weapons and activities steal the show.

You also get an incredibly robust character creator. I made a mini-me character decked out in stylish (and ridiculous) clothing. Customizing cars is awesome too – I added jet engines to a sedan to make it fly!

With side activities like Professor Genki‘s kill-crazy game show, Insurance Fraud ragdoll physics fun, and Flashing (don‘t ask), there‘s never a dull moment.

Oh, and did I mention you can smack enemies with a giant purple dildo bat?? Some things you just have to experience firsthand.
