Today (now that Game Informer already let the cat out of the bag) THQ finally came up off some details about Saints Row: The Third—and fittingly, the storyline sounds like something straight out of the rap game. In the third installment of the franchise, Stilwater’s own Third Street Saints have evolved from gangbangers to a household brand name, with Saints sneakers, Saints energy drinks, and Johnny Gat bobblehead dolls all available at a store near you (can you say BMF?). However, not everyone likes the Saints' newfound fame. The criminal Syndicate from nearby Steelport is hating and they demand that the Saints break bread. Once the Saints refuse, the war is on.
SRTT is also said to have some ill off-kilter gameplay including tank skydiving, satellite-targeted airstrikes on a Mexican wrestling gang, and fights with a sex toy. SRTT hits stores for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall.
