Design Director Scott Phillips said that ''Saints Row IV''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s missions have been changed to "more of a quest log structure" and that the missions "are more organized".

Missions provide the narrative of Saints Row IV.

OverviewEdit

During development on Saints Row IV, Volition, Inc. targeted mission structure as a key area for improvement. Speaking to Polygon, they explained that players' use of the cellphone to retrieve missions in Saints Row: The Third felt disconnected from the game's narrative.

Design Director Scott Phillips said that Saints Row IV's missions have been changed to "more of a quest log structure" and that the missions "are more organized". Phillips believes that it's "just a better structure to pull people through the game".[1]

The plot is divided into Quests.

  • Each Quest may have multiple objectives.
  • Each Objective may have multiple requirements.
  • Objectives may be Missions or Activities.
  • Missions and Activities have standard completion screens which show the mission title, while other Objectives and Quest completion messages appear on-screen during gameplay.
  • Quest names are shown in the Cellphone, and the Save and Load screens.
  • Mission names are shown on the mission completed and failed screens.

Side Quests become available after some missions. Side Quest Objectives consist of Activities, Diversions, Challenges or simply using a store.
