Game news Saints Row: GTA rival takes stock of its wacky character editor during Summer Game Fest 2022
That’s it, the Summer Game Fest ended recently by highlighting both the games announced earlier in the week, and by confirming the recent leaks that there may have been during the day. As expected, the reboot of Saints Row was in the game and intended to bring chaos to a half-hearted conference. And for that, nothing better than playing the madness card by revealing a completely crazy character editor!

Faced with GTA, become the kingpin you want!
For those hoping for Grand Theft Auto, emcee Geoff Keighley had things straightened out before the event kicked off. However, it has not been said that the players would not have a small dose of GTA-like to put in their mouths during the two hours of show. As we assumed a few days ago, Saints Row was present among the guest list, and we were treated to one of the most important aspects of the game: customization.
Before you start setting up your empire, you will have to create an avatar that commands respect. Or on the contrary, a boss who is extremely embarrassing so that your rivals will be assaulted by embarrassment every time they pass you. To give free rein to your creative madness, the Volition teams have developed the “Boss Factory” which was unveiled in a dedicated trailer!
Make your boss look good!
Expected August 23, 2022, Saints Row decided to fill up with features in order to differentiate itself from Grand Theft Auto, but also to overshadow the license by wanting to be even more uninhibited and crazy. No stereotypical characters as you can find in the Rockstar franchise: this time around, you can be any mobster you want, head to toe. And when we see the possibilities, thanks to the video shared this evening, we say to ourselves that there is no limit to the madness!
Certainly, it is always interesting to have an explanatory trailer, but what is even better is to discover it yourself. The Volition teams have therefore planned a surprise: a demo can already be downloaded for free and allows you to experiment with all the possibilities offered by the character editor in order to be run in during the creation of your ambitious criminal next August!
About the Summer Game Fest
What is Summer Game Fest?
No E3 this year, but we can still count on another world-class event: the Summer Game Fest, a big show dedicated to announcements of video games to come this year or the following years. It was in 2020 that journalist and host Geoff Keighley launched this now unmissable festival for the first time. Last year, the show featured stunning images from Elden Ring; so inevitably, the third iteration raises high expectations.
When does Summer Game Fest 2022 start?
The Summer Game Fest is this Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. The show will once again be followed by a Day of the Devs session devoted to the independent scene.
