Mods come to Saints Row

Saints Row

The Penny Arcade reports that Deep Silver Volition has now decided to support the creation of mods for Saints Row. This turnabout was made possible by THQ’s bankruptcy and the sale of Volition to Deep Silver. The previous owner of the studio was close to financial ruin, so there was no way that they would allow the studio’s employees to support mod creators, as opposed to working on the next big financial hit. It is true that companies stand to receive little financial gain, but modding supported by the developers can create a true sense of community among players and can complement the original product. A recent example of this is DayZ – a mod created for the highly realistic military simulator Arma 2 that introduced zombie and survival mechanics to the game. This mod increased the sales of Arma 2 and is now being made into a standalone game by Dean “Rocket” Hall (the creator of the DayZ mod) together with Bohemia Interactive, the developer of the Arma series.

The long time Saints Row mod creator Mike “IdolNinja” Watson was overjoyed at the prospects of being able to get his hands on an early modding SDK (Software Development Kit) and getting to talk to the 15 developers from Volition, who have decided to support the modding community in their free time. His post about the change in Volition’s approach to modding speaks for itself: “I am floored. I am excited. I am ecstatic. I have had to pinch myself repeatedly and reread emails to prove they were actually real and not some kind of crazy fever dream. I even danced.”

Saints Row: the Third, the most recent game in the Saints Row series, is set in the fictional metropolis of Steelport and has the Saints fighting the Syndicate, a criminal empire that has started expanding into their hometown of Stilwater. The player is given free reign over this metropolis to do as he or she sees fit. Saints Row: the Third is well known for pushing the boundaries of great fun. This is a game, where you could start in a next generation VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) jet, jump out, parachute into the middle of dozens of enemies and take them out with a giant purple dildo, all while not having even a scrap of clothing on.
