Biting Saints Row: The Third trailer lampoons Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3

Written by: / / No Comments

By now, you’re sure to have witnessed the intensely atmospheric, epic and military-themed trailers for Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and EA’s Battlefield 3, both of which exude very identifiable visual touches, action sequences and audio cues.

It seems as though people at THQ and Volition have seen these trailers, too, and together the publisher/developer pair have released a video of their own, only this time featuring Saints Row: The Third imbued with elements that are somehow very familiar:

We’re sure you’ll agree, this trailer is fantastically produced and pulls off its references to both Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 perfectly – a little too perfectly, in fact.

It would be brilliant to see EA or Activision respond with a video of their own, but for now, we can look forward to the release of Saints Row: The Third on November 15th in the US and November 18th everywhere else, on Xbox 360 and PS3.
