Saints Row: Free Update Fixes Game-Breaking Bugs

Boot Hill Update Deep Silver Volition

A myriad of content was introduced in the previous major patch for Saints Row. While they are certainly fun to play with, they didn't come free of issues. Thankfully, the developers fixed some game-breaking bugs in the recently released Boot Hill update, now available on all platforms.

If you've been enjoying wingsuiting to various places in the Sunshine Springs District, you may have encountered a game crash or two. This is just one of the many issues resolved in Saints Row's recent patch, so it's best that you download it as soon as you can.

Another thing that would cause the game to crash is spamming the "Sort By" button in the Browse Bosses/Favorite Bosses menus. While this is a silly bug, it still needed to be fixed and it has been in the latest patch.
