THQ boss Danny Bilson has claimed that using “brand new” technology, the yet-to-be formally announced Saints Row 3 will have graphics that match those of Grand Theft Auto IV.
“Quality. Look at the visual quality of Saint’s Row 2. When you see Saints Row 3, it’s the visual quality of the GTA IV universe,” Bilson told CVG. “It goes up there. It still has the wacky, insane stuff. It’s going to get really big and really loud in December. And as soon as you see the assets, the gamers will go: ‘Oh, I know what they invested in. The technology.'”
December is when the Saints Row 3 reveal will happen. Bilson’s confirmed this in the past.
“The technology is brand new, looks spectacular, still has the fun factor to it – but has all the robust visualization of any game on the market now. I don’t think it was there before. It succeeded spectacularly in its audacity and its fun factor. Now imagine that in a more robust world with more mechanics, too.”
Bilson also mentioned that the game has “all kinds of different bosses and combat” that are “less gangsta” than previous Saints Row titles.
December couldn’t come soon enough.
