PlayStation 5 owners will be able to enjoy Activities support, as well as a subtle signature Saints purple glow on the DualSense controller.
Existing owners of Saints Row: The Third Remastered who own Gen 9 consoles will be able to enjoy these upgrades free of charge – Free Upgrade and Smart delivery are guaranteed across PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S versions.
