Saints Row: The Third – New Update Released

Volition has released a new update for their action and chaotic third person sandbox shooter game, Saints Row: The Third. This new update will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client and comes with some specific Eyefinity correction and fixes, general sound optimizations and other, various fixes. Unfortunately, the release notes do not include any fix about the awful SLI scaling in DX9. Here is hoping now that Nvidia will fix it. You can view the entire changelog after the jump.
