Saints Row: The Third Remastered is Epic exclusive, original developer Volition is not involved

Saints Row: The Third is getting a new edition as a 'remaster', which will be released exclusively on PC to the Epic Games Store on May 22, 2020. No word on if or when this edition will release on Steam, although we assume it will either be a 6 or 12 month exclusive title as has been the pattern with other Epic exclusive games.

According to the store description, the Saints Row: The Third Remastered will include:

Quote

Remastered with enhanced graphics, Steelport the original city of sin, has never looked so good as it drowns in sex, drugs and guns.  

Quote

All DLC included – All three expansion mission packs and 30 pieces of DLC from the original version.

According to the original developer's Twitter account, the remastering of the game has been handled by an outsourced company Sperasoft:

We don't know a huge amount about Sperasoft, except that they are responsible for work completed on Monopoly (2012) and Risk (2012).

I'm sure many of you already own the original Saints Row: The Third, as it was a very popular game that often goes on deep sales. Will you be picking up this new version of the game? Has the 'remastering' gone far enough to justify a new edition rather than a patch? And why not remaster Saints Row 2, which arguably is in much more dire a need of a remaster.

Truer words have never been spoken. The trend to remaster games newer than a decade old still baffles me.

      Yes that's right, that Grand Theft Auto V game is now completely free on Epic Games Store, however you might have a little trouble grabbing it as the website is experiencing 'difficulties' probably due to the overwhelming popularity of the game.
      Remember to check out our wiki article for the latest issues and fixes for the game.

      Congratulations to the Lutris team, who announced on Patreon that they were granted $25,000 from the Epic MegaGrant. In their announcement:
      Lutris is an open source gaming platform for Linux that installs and launches games without the hassle of setting up on Linux and without installing system libraries. Lutris includes Linux support for using platforms like GOG, Steam, Battle.net, Origin, Uplay and finally Epic Games Store, which is beginning to gain support on the platform. 
      Despite this generous grant to a Linux project, it is interesting that Epic Games Store has no announced plans to lauch a native Linux client.

      What other noteworthy projects have been given grants by Epic? Should PCGamingWiki apply for an Epic MegaGrant?

      Epic Games just posted an August update on the recently shipped and upcoming features of the store. Although cloud saves were enabled with the giveaway of Moonlighter and This War of Mine on July 25, which was promptly reflected on the wiki, followed by the creation of the list of games that support EGS save game cloud syncing, more games have become supported since then.
      The addition of cloud save support to World War Z and The Sinking City is new and especially important because of the progression loss issues that some of the World War Z players struggled with at launch.
      Among the other released features are the support of keyless Humble Bundle integration, product pages UI refresh and game videos hosted by Epic Games.
      The more notable announcements were the showcasing of the upcoming library UI redesign and the statement on game time tracking being close to release.
