In an interview with Msxboxworld, Jacques Hennequet of Volition confirmed a very large demo for their upcoming game Saints Row. He also explains some of the basics of this Grant Theft Auto clone. The game is still set for September this year.
Although a demo was never officially announced are you still planning on releasing one via the marketplace or otherwise before the game ships?
Absolutely. Stay tuned for the date and the contents. It will be a very large demo.
How many weapons will be available in the game and will these include melee weapons as well?
About twenty. Yes, we have several melee weapons.
Will there be multiple ways players can attempt to tackle missions within the game?
There are always different ways you can win any mission, but the bulk of the choices are more about what you do to unlock the missions than within the missions themselves.
In total how many story and sub missions are you aiming for? What kind of replay value can gamers expect from Saints Row?
There are thirty six missions and thirteen activities. Each activity has eight levels of difficulty. We think there will be a lot of replay value in the game as you can approach it differently, try to max out your scores, unlock all achievements etc…
