Saints Row pre-orders - which edition to get

Saints Row pre-orders are up for grabs, but there are so many different editions of the game - our overview will show you what's what

There’s still time to get your Saints Row pre-orders in if you want to get the game on its release date and grab a few pre-order bonuses along the way. It’s been nine years since the last new Saints Row game, so no doubt there’ll be a lot of people who are keen to finally get their hands on some more Saints Row goodness.

Unsure about going for the Saints Row pre-orders? Well, if the most recent instalments were a little too wacky for your tastes, then the fact that this reboot seems to be more of a return to the tone of Saints Row 2 might be very welcome news. This one tells the story of a group of young twenty-somethings who turn to a life of crime in order to fund their passion projects. It’s rooted in reality, but not without a bit of tongue-in-cheek humour, or over-the-top action.

Those looking to add this game to their collection will have probably realised that there are a number of different editions available to pre-order. We’ve got an overview of all of them for you to help make it easier for you to decide which one will be best for you.

The different editions of the Saints Row reboot available to pre-order are:

Saints Row pre-order bonus: The Idols Anarchy Pack. Text reads "Pre-order Saints Row and get the Idols Anarchy Pack" and image shows the unique bat, bike, and helmet that this pack provides.


Saints Row Reboot pre-orders (standard)

The Standard Edition of the game is available physically and digitally on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC (though digital-only on PC). If you get this version, you’ll get the Idols Anarchy Pack as a pre-order bonus, which includes the following in-game bonuses:

  • Idols DJ Helmet – a flashy cat-like helmet with a digital face on it
  • Twinkle Bat – a baseball bat wrapped in fairy lights
  • Sandstorm Scrambler – a unique motorcycle

You may see this version called “Day 1 Edition” too but it’s the same thing. Also, those shopping from Amazon UK will get an Idols face scarf as an extra bonus.

Saints Row: Gold Edition

This version of the game is only available digitally. In addition to the Idols Anarchy Pack that’s included in the Standard Edition, this one also includes:

  • Saints Criminal Customs – which includes two in-game bonuses; the Saints Custom Convertible, and the Saints Custom Stab Jacket
  • Los Panteros American Muscle Bundle – which includes two in-game bonuses; the Custom ‘Fury’ Motorcycle, and the El Lanzador Heavy Weapon Skin
  • Expansion Pass – ensuring you gain access to future DLC as it releases

Saints Row pre-orders: artwork shows the platinum edition of the game's logo, with a group of characters standing under a darker sky than that seen on the Gold Edition, but the image is otherwise the same.

This edition comes with everything in the standard and gold editions, as well as one particularly juicy bonus: Saints Row: The Third Remastered. This edition can only be bought digitally, so bad luck for anyone who wanted a physical copy of the Saints Row: The Third Remaster.

If you’re a long-time fan, this’ll be a chance to re-experience an old favourite with a bit of extra spit and polish, and if you’re coming into the reboot as first-time player, this’ll be an opportunity to acquaint yourself with something of the series. With over 40 hours of content if you do everything, this is a generous pre-order bonus.

Unlike the last two editions that we covered, this one is actually only available as a physical copy on all platforms but PC. It’s almost like an edition that fits between the standard and gold editions. It contains the following bonuses:

  • The Idols Anarchy Pack
  • Saints Criminal Customs Pack

Saints Row pre-orders: image shows the box art of Saints Row: Legacy Edition. It has a bunch of people standing around in the road.

If you wanted to get your hands on a physical edition that came with Saints Row: The Third as well, then you will have to get the  Legacy Edition. This version is exclusive to Best Buy. It also comes with the following:

  • The Idols Anarchy Pack
  • Saints Row keyring

Saints Row: Notorious Edition

Although this version does not contain Saints Row: The Third, it’s potentially going to be the most appealing package to a lot of fans, because it contains all of the following:

  • The Idols Anarchy Pack
  • Saints Criminal Customs Pack
  • Los Panteros American Muscle Bundle
  • SteelBook box
  • A double-sided poster
  • Mini artbook
  • Four Santo Ileso postcards
  • Four character art cards

The Notorious Edition is a GameStop exclusive in the US, and a Game exclusive in the UK (where it also comes with an exclusive bandana).

We hope that that helps you to decide which version of the game you’re going to get for yourself.
