Saints Row: The Third (also known as Saints Row 3) is an action-adventure game developed by Volition and published by THQ. It was released on November 15, 2011 in Australia and North America, and was released on November 18, 2011 in Europe for Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is the third game in the Saints Row series after the release of Saints Row 2 in 2008. As in Saints Row 2, the player controls the leader of the Third Street Saints in the fictional city of Steelport.
Having defeated all their rivals in Stilwater at the end of Saints Row 2, the Saints have turned their street gang into a media empire after merging with the Ultor Corporation. They have since become icons across the world, with their own energy drink, a large fan base, and a movie deal in the works. But when they attempt to rob a bank with Josh Birk (a TV star who is "researching" his part for the Saints' movie), their everyday routine takes an unlikely turn when the bank tellers unexpectedly fight back with military grade weapons. The Saints attempt to airlift the vault out of the building, but when Birk sets off the alarm, it alerts the Stilwater P.D. and, after an intense firefight, the Saints are incarcerated.
