It seems that developer Volition is desperate to win fans over after the divisive announcement of the reboot for the Saints Row series. So much so that they have been releasing earlier gameplay videos for the upcoming reboot, including the latest one which shows off 8 minutes of early gameplay from the opening missions.

Unfortunately, the hosts of the video talk over most of the gameplay shown which means it can be hard to hear the actual story/dialogue going on, but at least we get a taster for what the opening of the Saints Row Reboot is going to be like, and what kind of missions we might expect with the usual Saints Row flavor.

Once again this is Pre-Alpha, and so a lot can change between now and February. Personally, the environment seems a little dull, with not much color variation going on in the world around you (it’s all mostly just hazes of orange and brown), which is contrasted by the bright colors of cars, lights, and the HUD. Hopefully we’ll get even more diverse areas in the full game, as we only know of a few districts so far.

What do you think? How do you feel about the gameplay shown above? Are you getting more excited for the Saints Row Reboot? Or is this stirring up more worries for you? Let us know!

looks like the AI has the same accuracy as Storm troopers, Graphics look like SR3 but with improved lighting, Car handling feels off...

on seconds though, AI here is worse than storm troopers, at least the storm troopers keep shooting. A lot of times enemies here just do shuffle dancing...
