Saint's Row

Is Saints Row On Game Pass?

Paul McNally

We are getting used (and indeed spoilt) by the number of great ‘free’ games that arrive on Day One on Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription service.

Saints Row is a big game, so is it Game Pass and if not, will it ever be?

Here come the Saints, but can you play the game on Game Pass, or will it cost you real money?

Is Saint’s Row On Xbox Game Pass?

Bad news gaming subscriptions fans, Volition’s Saints Row reboot is not on Game Pass at launch. In fact, if you have a PC, it’s not even on Steam, as Saints Row is an Epic Game Store exclusive, which means, if you are going to play it you are going to have to purchase it there and have it nestle alongside all those free games you constantly collect every Thursday in your library.

If you are an Xbox player you can purchase it from the Microsoft Store. Similarly for the PlayStation version, head to your PlayStation Sstore, but with a starting price of $59.99 / £54.99 you need to know that this is an investment and not a throwaway game.

There are several editions as well which will get you the Expansion Pass ($89.99) or the Expansion Pass and the Remastered version of Saints Row The Third ($99.99) but you will need to be a true Saints Row fan to be going that deep we think.

Saints Row System Requirements

If you are playing on a PC and wondering whether to drop that amount of cash seeing as the game is not on Game Pass, it’s worth checking that your gaming rig can handle everything the Saints are about to throw at it.

Here is Volition’s minimum and recommended system requirements to play Saints Row.

Saints Row Minimum System Requirements

OS Windows 10 64bit
Processor Intel Core i3-3240 / Ryzen 3 1200
Memory 8192 MB RAM
Graphics GeForce GTX 970 / AMD Radeon RX 480
Storage 50 GB available space
Direct X DX11

Saints Row Recommended System Requirements

OS Windows 10 64bit
Processor Intel Core i5 12600 / AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
Memory 16 GB
Graphics GeForce RTX 3080TI / AMD Radeon RX 6800XT
Storage 50 GB available space
Direct X DX12

As you can see the main step-up areas are in RAM and certainly your GPU. A recommended 3080TI seems a little ridiculous to us. We are playing happily on far less, but if you want the best then choose your poison.

Will Saints Row Ever Come To Game Pass?

Currently, no Saints Row game is available on Xbox Game Pass although Saints Row IV: Re-Elected is there for purchase.

It looks like we could well be waiting forever before our subscription finally hooks us up with the Saints. Looks like this is one you are just going to have to buy this one.
