Saints Row: The Third

What is Saints Row: The Third?

Saints Row: The Third is an action-adventure open world video game developed by Volition, Inc. and published by THQ. Saints Row: The Third retains the blend of an action-adventure in an open world, urban warfare format that is traditional in the Saints Row series. The game runs on the CTG Engine. Volition considered using Geo-Mod in Saints Row: The Third, but decided not to do it because it would be "Game-breaking" because of some missions that take place indoors.
