The craziness of Saints Row: The Third will be cranked up to a new level with the upcoming expansion, Enter the Dominatrix, which gives players super powers. Seriously.
Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Game Production for THQ, said this in a press release:
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.
The expansion picks up after the events of Saints Row: The Third, as an alien warlord, Zinyak, prepares to invade earth. The alien leader captures the head of the Saints and imprisons him in a virtual reality simulator, known as the Dominatrix.
The Saints Row series has never exactly taken itself seriously. The series prided itself on being Grand Theft Auto‘s wacky little brother that appealed to all the people who didn’t enjoy Grand Theft Auto‘s movement toward more sober narratives. But this is a whole new level of craziness for the game, for better or worse.
More details will emerge about the expansion this summer. Enter the Dominatrix is a full-fledged expansion, as well – it’s a standalone game and can be purchased as its own “boxed retail product” for $30 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
