Saints Row: The Third Free Weekend Pre-Load Now Available on Steam

Posted on September 19, 2012 AT 03:37am

Saints Row: The Third is free-to-play this weekend on Steam, and those of you who are interested can now pre-load the game ready for when it unlocks.

There is however a slight roundabout way that you have to go to actually start the pre-load though. Normally when a game is free for a weekend it appears in your library, but it appears that the pre-load has been released a little early and so to start it you have to check your purchase history and it should be there.

Expect it to appear in your library either sometime later today or tomorrow. The actual free-to-play weekend doesn’t start until Friday so you have plenty of time to download it.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
