When it comes to multiplatform games, the PC version often gets screwed with last-minute delays - assuming it's not just cancelled outright. However, that won't happen with open-world crime game Saints Row: The Third.
"Today, THQ and Volition announced that the PC version of Saints Row: The Third is scheduled to release exactly when they said it would," reads an announcement on the SR3 website. "Developed in-house at Volition in Champaign, IL and powered by Steam, Saints Row: The Third on PC is not scheduled to be delayed by any unforeseen development problems, shipping issues, inclement weather, or zombie apocalypse. As such, it remains on track for a November 15 release, exactly when we said it would."
November 15th, in case you're wondering, is the same North American release date as the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. The game is slated to hit all three platforms in Europe on the 18th.
The announcement from THQ and Volition adds that more details on the PC version, such as system requirements, will be added to the official website. It seems there will be a few PC-only features. No hints are given about what those features could entail. Better high-end visuals are presumably part of the package.
In Saints Row: The Third, the Third Street Saints gang has become quasi-celebrities. They've even got their own fashion label and energy drink. This fame comes at a price, though, as they soon draw the attention of a shadowy criminal organization known as the Syndicate. The Syndicate muscles The Saints out of their home of Stilwater, forcing them to start over in the new city of Steelport. Players must rebuild the Saints and get revenge on the Syndicate.
