Full modding SDK in the works for Saints Row: The Third

Recently, the man behind Saints Row 2 modding blog Idol Ninja sent an email to Volition Inc, requesting information on Saints Row: The Third‘s various internal specifications, only to be astounded when Jeff Thompson; programming director, actually replied. He said that he is all for the idea, and would personally try to help him out as much as he could with the project.

Quote from Idol Ninja blog:

Jeff Thompson, the Studio Director of Programming at Volition, is putting together a package for us containing documentation, file formats, tools and more on the Saints Row: The Third engine. [We’ll] be working closely with Jeff over the coming months to use this information to create a robust set of modding tools to supplement our existing ones and creating what is essentially a full SDK for the game! But, that’s not all! Saints Row: The Third is only the beginning! Jeff has confirmed that he will also be digging up all the Saints Row 2 info that he can so we can do the same for it as well, and that this undertaking is actually a ‘test run’ for Saints Row IV.”

The post goes on to mention that Thompson will be monitoring  the thread for requests with specific information, so if you’ve ever come across the idea of tinkering with Saints Row: The Third, or even the previous games before it, drop by the blog!

Now that there is word of a full modding SDK is in the works, we can hope for some more crazy, unique and whacky content to come to Saints Row: The Third, and this is all thanks to efforts from the game’s passionate online community.
