GOG.com has announced that the Saints Row series is now available on the digital distribution platform, DRM-free – along with GOG Connect compatibility. To celebrate the series’ release, GOG is offering Saints Row 2 as a free download for the next 48 hours. It’s the perfect time to look back at the best mods the Saints Row series has had, starting with a Saints Row 2 megamod.
“A massive integrated collection of mods, tweaks, and fixes that greatly enhances the game while still staying true to the spirit of the original. The mod has been carefully balanced to be used by either a newcomer or a veteran to the series, and offers 100+ new clothing items with 120+ new logos, improved weather including a darker night time and more vibrant colours in daytime, plane and boat mechanics for customizing, additional missions, new vehicle dealerships, new weapons, new cribs, new homies and gang styles, new taunts and compliments, new walking styles, 100+ new ambient music tracks for purchase, more car paints, more skin colors, tattoos, makeup, optional 360/PS3 onscreen controller prompts, new cheat codes including NPC morphs, and tons of tweaks and bug fixes.”
“Less health, longer regen time, locked on hardcore difficulty, no unlimited ammo rewards, less respect from activities, more respect from killing goons, carry less ammo, expensive ammunition, expensive weapons, expensive properties, even expensive clothes and accessories, less income, less cash from activities, harder missions, the bosses are a nightmare now!”
“This mod compilation contains several mods that seriously improve the gameplay in Saints Row: The Third by overhauling the game's weapons, AI, spawning, weather, and taunts in order to provide you with a much more entertaining, dynamic, and polished Saints Row 3 experience without straying too far from the feel of vanilla SR3!”
“Less income from properties, upgrading your vehicles is more expensive, upgrading your character is more expensive, gain respect harder/level up harder, carry less ammo for your guns, your HP regenerates slower, Brutes, Oleg, Gangs, STAG Commandos, Zombies and Boss fights are harder. Pedestrians and cars now spawn more often, and pedestrians have a higher chance of being brave and fighting back.”
“A mod that makes the world of Virtual Steelport a much less boring place to mess about in. Brings back the Steelport police, military, STAG, past gangs and so much more. Dozens of new NPCs and vehicle variants spawn on the streets of Virtual Steelport! Unused SR3 pedestrians and animations have been added back into the game! Unique spawns for each neighborhood have been imported from my SR3 mod, leading to much greater diversity in different areas of the city! Randomization of NPC items and props!”
“This mod adds 20 new weapons to Saints Row IV, new superpower upgrades, and some general gameplay tweaks and balances to all other weapons! This includes new melee weapons, pistols, SMGs, shotguns, rifles, explosives, and special weapons such as laser beams and suit blasters.”
