**Response from V-Singular**

Let me first acknowledge that I appreciate how many of you have come in here, and in a calm manner, stated your request for a Mission Reply addition to Saints Row: The Third. While there were some bad apples along the way, being able to convey your request in a collected and constructive manner is very appreciated, and I thank the majority of you in this thread for that.

Unfortunately, Mission Replay will not be available in Saints Row: The Third, through either a patch or DLC. There were a few reasons this was removed after SR2, due in part to the new game engine, some game-breaking glitches/exploits that had been available to SR2 players, and other reasons related to specific development concerns. We also hoped players would want to play through the entire game multiple times to either try out the multiple branching stroylines / choices, or to experience the entire game in another fashion be it through a different voice, character, or upgrade options.

While I know the following solution is not ideal, if you wish to replay a certain mission, you can create individual manual saves files before any major mission along the way. Yes, you're not actually replaying it with any new items you've acquired after the specific mission in question, but the potential for bringing in some of those late-game items into earlier missions presents many potential and unknown issues.

As a final point, because of your feedback here, even though it is off the table for SR:TT, the development teams moving forward are aware and this feature will be considered for any future Volition title. Please note that this is not a guarantee of it being placed into any future Volition title, but it will be discussed and evaluated by the team at large.

We all hope that you can continue to enjoy Saints Row: The Third, even without this feature.


The missions in this game are extremely fun, and I bet im not the only person who wishes I could replay them. Not having this feature severely shortens the overall replay value for this. Along with mission replay, allow us to rewatch the game's cutscenes. Feel free to leave your thoughts and comments. Volition please bring back these features!

1.Mission Replay / New Game+

2.Cutscene Replay


Thanks for Supporting!

I wholeheartedly agree, and despite my doubt that they'll add it in the future, I really hope they do. I'm improvising this feature in myself by making a 'new save game' slot right before I start a new mission, but it's such a hassle and if I want to view a specific cutscene, I'll have to finish the whole misisons to see it. I can deal with all the shortcomings with this game if I could just have my replay cutscenes/missions feature back.

SPOILER ALERT: When I killed Philipe Loren I didn't even know! I found out from the achievement I got from it and the story pointing at it, but I didn't actually see him die...I wanted to review the scene to see him get crushed by the giant ball, but I don't have a save point for that mission and I really don't feel like going back and starting a brand new game from the beginning. Oh well, maybe someday.

A lousy design choice.

Really kills any longterm replay value / ownership of SR:TT.

I agree, re-play is fun. but if it's not in now, I doubt it will be later...

NOOOOO! I didn't even know this. Why?!  I just got the game. Are there at least viewable cutscenes like in a theater or something?
