Saints Row: The Third Is Due Out This Year, Folks.

What better day to lift the lid on third installment of the Saints Row franchise, Saints Row: The Third?

The publisher's formally announced that the game's coming to PlayStation 3 later in the year. It'll see the 3rd Street Saints gang get into some kind of res-pect war with a rival group known as the Syndicates.

“Saints Row: The Third puts you on top of the world, right at the beginning of the game, with all the perks that go along with being the head of an elite criminal organization,” said THQ’s Danny Bilson.

“There’s no delivering pizza, no shuttling family members about in a long series of taxi missions. Instead, you take all the power of the Third Street Saints and you take the world by storm.”

So there you have it. Official: Saints Row returns this year. We missed out on the second one — is it worth a look?
