Does Saints Row have crossplay?

Saints Row doesn't have crossplay in the traditional sense. If you play on PlayStation, you can't play with Xbox players. This being said, it does have cross-generation support. If your friends play on PlayStation 4, you can play with them on PlayStation 5.

We don't have reason to believe crossplay could come post-launch but it's certainly not impossible. If the game proves to be popular, there's always a chance it could come. If the devs believe it will help long-term player retention, it may get released after launch.

What platforms is Saints Row on?

At launch, you can get Saints Row on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, PC, and Google Stadia. Though it is running on previous generations' hardware, it may struggle with anything as underpowered as the Nintendo Switch.

This being said, with a cloud-based launch on Google Stadia, we could potentially see a cloud launch on Nintendo Switch. If enough players want it, the devs may put the time in to figure it out. However, it's not worth banking on it happening just yet.

Saints Row preorder details

There are a few major versions of the game. If you wish to buy it digitally, the standard edition comes with the base game plus the 'Idols Anarchy Pack'. If you want to put the money in to get the gold version, you get all of the above plus the 'Saints Criminal Customs', 'Los Panteros American Muscle Bundle!' and the 'Expansion Pass'.

The platinum edition of the game comes with everything above plus Saints Row The Third Remastered.

If you want the game physically, the notorious edition comes with all of the above plus a steelbook, postcards and a bunch of small physical goodies. Unlike most deluxe physical editions, this version of the game doesn't come with a statue.
