Saints Row – Hotfix 1 is Live on PC and PlayStation, Fixes PC Crashes and High Camera Sensitivity

saints row

The first hotfix for Volition’s Saints Row is now live on PC via the Epic Games Store and PlayStation consoles (with the Xbox version still being approved). It addresses many issues, from crashes on PC to the default camera sensitivity being too high.

A crash that occurred when the player used the Star Launcher after customizing it has also been fixed. Animation bugs should no longer cause players to stand next to their hijacked vehicle instead of inside it. Riding Shotgun on Sensei difficulty should also be easier in some instances.

It’s not all good news, though. The PS5 Dualsense’s Adaptive Triggers have been disabled due to an issue with the inverted axis when “resistance” is toggled. The developer fully intends to add this back, so stay tuned for future updates.

Saints Row is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC, and Google Stadia. Check out our official review here.

Hotfix #1

This week: Hotfix #1 will be submitted and deployed across multiple platforms in the coming days and will address camera issues, animation bugs, PC Launch issues and crashes. These need to go through approval for each platform so may be staggered releases on each, but they are coming for all!

  • Stops issues when launching via Epic on DX12
