Saints Row The Third Lets You Play With Friends—Sort of
Does Saints Row 3 Remastered have split-screen and online co-op? This is a question that has been on people's minds since the game was announced earlier this year. Now that Saints Row 3 Remastered is about to come out, we are able to answer all the questions surrounding online and split-screen co-op.
Does Saints Row 3 Remastered Have Split-Screen and Online Multiplayer?
Saints Row: The Third Remastered does have online co-op multiplayer. However, the remaster does not feature split-screen co-op for the campaign or the horde-based 'Whored Mode.' You are able to play both the co-op campaign and 'Whored Mode' in online co-op with a friend over the internet. The online co-op is also drop-in and drop-out, so you and a buddy can hook up without having to worry about being at the same stage of the game.
Local split-screen co-op wasn't in the original game's release back on Xbox 360 or PS3 either, so it hasn't been removed. It was just never present at all.
Saints Row: The Third Remastered was announced back in April by Deep Silver and brings the game to all current-generation platforms after the original came to Nintendo Switch last year. The remaster gives the game a nice lick of paint with improved texture quality and character models, as well as a revamped lighting system, along with more vehicles and pedestrians roaming the streets of Steelport. On top of that, the remaster comes with all three DLC packs that were released for the game, as well as additional costumes.
Hopefully, this remaster will tie you over whilst we wait for Volition to officially unveil their new Saints Row game they are currently working on.
