THQ Talks A Bit Of Saints Row 3, Red Faction Hype
Saints Row 2 was an entertaining open-world sandbox game featuring plenty of questionable material, so you can expect an even bigger and more controversial environment in the third entry.
According to what THQ core games vice president Danny Bilson told CVG, Saints Row 3 is absolutely "mind-blowing" and we should start seeing promotion and marketing some time later this year. He also refers to new technology on the horizon - which the franchise could certainly use, in our opinion - and in speaking about Volition's next Red Faction title, Bilson said something about "insane upgrades." Now, between these two games mentioned here, it's clear that THQ is into these expansive, freedom-oriented worlds and although the publisher certainly has other titles in the hopper, Bilson admits that such a style "is a big, big part of their design aesthetic." Well, it usually tends to work really well; last year's Red Faction: Guerrilla was excellent and although we had our issues with Saints Row 2, it's tough to deny the game's inherent appeal. ...it's an appeal that sorta ramps up with the inclusion of Tera Patrick.
Anyway, expect Saints Row 3 early next year and as for the next Red Faction, we'll be looking around for details and info.
