Saints Row: The Third – First Gameplay Footage

by on June 24, 2011

Saints Row: The Third developers Volition have been teasing their latest title and releasing screenshots for several months, but now – for the first time – they have released a in-game trailer, showing footage of a whole bunch of the crazy stuff you will be able to get upto. The Saints Row series is famous for being a less serious take on open-world gaming, and in the past they have poked fun at Rockstar games for being too serious. In that vein, the video just released includes such weapons as the Apoca-Fists – a pair of gloves that make your punches so explosive, your enemies explode, and also shows the player beating homeless people with a huge purple sex toy.

Also on show is a Tank Mayhem mini-game, where players must cause as much destruction as possible in the city – whilst driving a tank, it shows how costume customisation works in the many shops around the city, and also goes through some of the incredible vehicles that are at the disposal of the Third City Saints. This is all handled with the typical Saints Row sense of humour, and goes a long way to illustrate just how silly a game it is going to be.

So check it out below:

Saints Row: The Third is due for release on November 18th 2011 & will be available for PC, PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360.
