Five years after the events of Saints Row 2, the Saints have grown into a media and consumer empire with their own brand, and find themselves stranded in the fictional city of Steelport (based on New York City), controlled by the international crime organization, the Syndicate.

Saints Row: The Third is an action-adventure game played from the third-person perspective in an open world, such that players explore an unrestricted environment. Similar to the premise of the previous Saints Row games, the player’s goal is to lead the Third Street Saints gang to overtake its rival gangs in the city turf war. While the protagonist is the same, the game introduces a new setting, the city of Steelport, with its own three gangs: the Morningstar, Luchadores, and Deckers, together known as the Syndicate. To further complicate matters, the government’s Special Tactical Anti-Gang unit (STAG) is summoned to quell both organizations.
