The Saints Row reboot is coming later this summer, but you can create your character now, according to a new leak.
Rumors are flying around like killer wasps ahead of the Summer Game Fest. The storefront is full of news, revelations and announcements and the Saints Row Boss Factory is supposedly one of them.
Tom Henderson, renowned leaker and writer of eXputer (opens in new tab)says the game is basically a Saints Row character creator that will be released on June 9th. It will be free to download, and the accompanying trailer will delve deeper into Saints Row’s character customization.
Henderson cites ‘sources’ who have confirmed the launch of the Saints Row Boss Factory this week. The nickname was apparently chosen because the player character in Saints Row will be referred to as a ‘boss’. If you’ve ever walked into a kebab shop drunk at 2am, you’ll be familiar with the title.
The free ‘game’ is said to be a complete character creator that includes all the bells and whistles available in the game itself. Your boss will be primed and ready to be transferred to Saints Row at launch.
Any abominations you create will be attached to a share code that can be used universally across all platforms. It can also be shared, and there are even upvotes on the designs. If your creation is horrible enough, you could be living your best life with tons of players on all platforms.
From what Henderson says, the Saints Row Boss Factory will include a Hall of Fame and Creator’s Corner where you can vote and possibly see your fellow bosses’ designs. It also says that players will need to create a profile on SaintsRow.com (opens in new tab) for Saints Row and Boss Factory. The as-yet-unconfirmed incentive is a handful of exclusive in-game items. Henderson mentions a Marshall Defense Technologies rocket launcher and two exclusive DJ helmets, so do with that information what you will.
Saints Row launches on August 23 and we only have a few days to wait for the Saints Row Boss Factory – or to find out there’s no substance to the rumor.
