THQ announced today development of what was originally an April Fool's joke, the Enter the Dominatrix standalone expansion to Saints Row: The Third
. The retail price for the PS3, 360, and PC expansions will be $29.99.
It looks like the wacky endeavors of the Third St. Saints will once again take center stage, while the player battles an alien warlord, bent on the destruction of Earth, in a virtual reality simulation. According to Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Game Production at THQ, "freaking super powers" will be involved.
The game was pretty outrageous before, but with super powers and alien virtual reality battles, it might just up the ante this fall.
"Faster than a speeding cyber jetbike, more powerful than a roided-out Luchadore, able to leap flying aircraft carriers in a single bound… That’s the power you’ll find inside the Dominatrix. Use it for good. Use it for evil. Use it for whatever you want. As always in Saints Row, it’s up to you,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc. “With a franchise with more than 11 million units shipped globally, it’s incredibly gratifying to have the flexibility to give Saints Row fans the features they want most.”
He later added, “Freaking super powers.”
About Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix
Saints Row: The Third - Enter the Dominatrix picks up immediately following the events of Saints Row: The Third. For centuries, alien warlord Zinyak has eyed Earth and its precious natural resources and females with a watchful eye. As he prepares an armada for invasion, he has only one worry: the Third Street Saints.
Once a simple street gang from Stilwater, the Saints have evolved into a global empire, replete with bombastic TV advertising and tasteful consumer products, the kind of TV advertising and consumer products that would give any alien warlord pause. Clearly, the Saints are the biggest badasses on Earth.
Now, in order to prepare his forces for domination, Zinyak captures the leader of the Saints and imprisons him in an elaborate virtual reality simulation. This simulation program looks and feels like Steelport, but it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. Here, you are a slave. Welcome… to the Dominatrix.
More details and a first look at Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix will be available this summer.
