Saints Row Combat Overhaul Update

We don't really know what it means right now, but Saints Row is getting a "huge" combat overhaul in its next update, which is currently scheduled for a May release. This patch was actually announced last week, as developer Volition outlined the game's roadmap through to August.

Although said roadmap did mention a "combat overhaul", it's now clear that this is supposed to be a reasonably big deal. Again, we don't have any details to go on yet, but we do have a teasing tweet that shows some new takedowns (we think?).

It'll be interesting to see just how in-depth this "overhaul" is. "Smoother" action is also mentioned, so maybe certain animations and prompts are being redesigned as well? We'll have to wait and find out.

What do you want from this Saints Row combat update? Would such an overhaul make you want to revisit the sandbox title? Raise an eyebrow in the comments section below.
