Cancelled Saints Row game now available to download for free

first_imgEarlier this week we reported on a Saints Row game for the PSP which was never released. Though initially hesitant to even show it to the world, Volition, the developer behind the game, has decided to release the unfinished title to the world as a free download.The game was discovered by Volition associate video editor Josh Stinson. He was surprised to find a PSP dev kit in storage because he didn’t know the company had even been working on a title for Sony’s first portable system. This PSP game was Saints Row: Undercover, or Saints Row 2, as it was originally called.Though the title was nearly complete, Volition felt that it didn’t meet the standards of a proper Saints Row game and terminated development of it. At first, the company was hesitant to show this game to the public since it prefers to reveal things which are finished. However, Stinson, along with video producer Alexander Mejia and community manager Mike Watson, managed to convince the higher ups to show the game to everyone.A live stream went up yesterday which had Stinson and Mejia playing the game. You can check that out here.For those interested in playing Saints Row: Undercover, you can go here to download the .ISO file. You can use whichever emulator you prefer to run the game. Undercover is being offered by the developer, so there’s no need to worry that you’re playing a pirated game. Just keep in mind that this is an unfinished game and won’t exactly make for an optimal playing experience. However, it does offer an interesting look into game development and how even games that are mostly finished can get cancelled.last_img read more
