It’s been more than three years since Saints Row 4 first graced our screens, but Volition’s crazy open-world adventure has just received one hell of an update.
The game now has Steam Workshop support, which will allow players to create and install mods. That makes it a hell of a lot easier for the active modding community, which previously had to use third-party tools to ensure all mods worked together.
Volition has been working on the update for a while, and admitted that there were “many challenges” to get it up and running.
“A handful of dedicated Volition devs worked on this in their free time to update the engine and remove memory restrictions, as well as finding a way for individual mods to interact and work correctly with each other without the need for running special tools. It was all a labor of love for our fans, and we’re incredibly excited to see the crazy content you come up with,” Volition said in a statement.
It’s great to see a developer work so closely with its game’s community, with the modders over at SaintsRowMods.com helping out with the creation and testing of the new update and modding tools.
As expected, the Workshop is already filled with a host of mods, and they’re all just as crazy as we hoped they would be.
Volition says it hopes to bring the Workshop to Linux players soon, with it currently only available on the Windows version of Saints Row 4.
Saints Row 4 is now only $3.74 (around $5 AUD) on Steam, so get into it and get downloading those mods!
