To do:
* Lots of prerelease stuff, such as multiple story rewrites, early gang designs and a bigger map of Steelport.
  • Possible Saints Row 2 leftovers, such as Fuzz and Crowd Control activities.
  • According to a leaked DLC list, co-op mode was originally DLC, see if there's any remnants of this.
Careful, you'll lose an eye.

Saints Row: The Third is the third game in the Saints Row series, funnily enough. And if possible, they've made the series even more ridiculous; boasting gangs made up of dominatrixes, luchadores, and emo computer hackers, a set of survival missions with the Cheshire Cat‑like Professor Genki, and of course, purple dildos as weapons.

This entry is rather divisive towards fans of the franchise, with the mixed-up story, downgrade of customization and copy-pasted buildings all over Steelport being the weakest points of the game. Otherwise, it's still an enjoyable game for what it is.

Cut Player Voice

To do:
Proof or source? If there's nothing in the game's files, then this should be in a pre-release page.

The game has seven usable voices for the Protagonist: three male (White American, Afro-American and British), three female (American, Russian, Hispanic), and a zombie. However, cut from the game was an entirely Auto-Tuned voice. This idea was instead used for the NPC Zimos.

Unused Suits

To do:

A few unused suits can be found within the game's code and are fully accessible through a glitch involving the Saints Row IV Inauguration Station Demo and the online outfit service. These suits include a Hazmat Suit, a Nyte Blade outfit, and a fire-fighter suit. These suits were rumored to be part of a DLC pack, but were shelved at the end of the game's lifespan.

Regional Differences

Japanese Version changes

  • The infamous Penetrator weapon, or dildo bat, was changed between the Japanese and international release of the game. Whilst retaining the same physics as the international version, most of its "detail" has been removed, meaning it is now just a floppy baseball bat, along with the name being changed to the "Suspicious Bat" (怪しいバット). The model, icons and unlock screen artwork was even changed for it.
Japan International
  • In the cutscene where Oleg was being freed from the Syn Tower, he was originally naked but he now wears his default clothing in the Japanese version. However, the dialogue referencing to him being naked was untouched, even though it received a different translation in the Japanese subtitles.
Japanese Subtitles Translation Original Dialouge
The last time a big naked dude said he could help me, it did not end well.
大丈夫か? Are you alright? You want some clothes, man?
問題ない No problem. No time.
だから デカイ男は苦手なんだよな… Man, like I said, the last time a big naked dude...

German Version changes

Just like the previous game, the German version disables the player from using non‑gang members or the police as human shields, as well as removing money rewards from killing pedestrians. In addition, killing pedestrians warns the police a lot quicker than in other versions of the game.

German players of the game can also only play with other German players (or anyone who owns the German copy of the game).
