Saints Row: The Third Remastered on Steam This Month

PCGamesN reports Saints Row: The Third Remastered is coming to Steam on May 22nd. Word is this is from Twitter, and while we couldn't locate the tweet in question, the May 22nd date certainly makes sense, since it's one year to the day since the game's release on the Epic Games Store. Here's a refresher on the remaster:
Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns.

Years after taking Stilwater for their own, the Third Street Saints have evolved from street gang to household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you. The Saints are kings of Stilwater, but their celebrity status has not gone unnoticed. The Syndicate, a legendary criminal fraternity with pawns in play all over the globe, has turned its eye on the Saints and demands tribute.

Yeah, no. I remember the Saints Row 2 port on PC. Unless this thing is absofuckinglutely magical, I am going to give it a hard pass.

Saints Row 2 was a great game, my favourite Saints Row game, and as you say the PC version was abysmal (I still played that one since I've never owned a single console).

All of the other Saints Row games after Saints Row 2 had solid PC versions. I've not had any issues.
Now we donce.

I have SR3 and SR4 remastered for Switch but have never fired them up. Worth a shot? I have a couple of hours free this afternoon. Thanks.

Literally every other SR game on the PC has been just fine. SR2 was the anomaly, not the norm.

SR2 is the only poorly ported SR game for PC.

SR3 didn't need a remaster anywhere close to as much as SR2 does.

Lol, you mean the outsourced port of a 2008 console game? The developers are more embarrassed about that debacle than any PC gamer is disappointed, they had no control over THQ subbing it out to what was then CD Projekt's localization team... We've since had SR3, SR4, and Gat Out of Hell (standalone expansion) all made for PC directly by Volition themselves. I dunno that I'd pay so much extra for the remaster when the original goes down to like $3 on sale, but you've been missing out on a lot of ridiculous fun by ignoring this series for 10 years.

And for the record, the SR3 port was fairly solid in the first place.

SR3 was awesome and this looks like a better-looking version of awesome. It's the point in the series when they finally stopped trying to be another GTA replica and embraced all the insanity that they could. I don't think I can even remember a single thing from SR1 or 2, but I'll never forget running around dressed in a spacesuit, beating people over the head with a dildo-bat, or using the Shark-O-Matic to get people devoured by the infamous sewer shark.

Yeah, SR2 was a mess of a PC port. A real shame too because, when it wasn't crashing, it was a fun game.
The "Gentlemen of the Row" mod helped but I found it still too unstable. I should probably give it another go as it's been a while.

Strange they don't have a 'Coming Soon' page on Steam.

This actually looks like a solid remaster. I may get it since I've wanted to get back into the Saints Row craziness again.
