THQ Details Saints Row: The Third Expansion Pack: Enter the Dominatrix

Lately, we have seen the classic expansion pack faze out as the way to get fresh content into games. Today we rely on DLC content packs which provide extra bits for our favorite games for less price. And while there have been plenty of content packs available for Volition’s Saints Row: The Third, such as spandex and pimp hats, THQ believes that there is more than enough room to offer a standalone expansion pack, Enter the Dominatrix.

The pack will go for $29.99, a rather typical price for expansion packs of yore. The pack will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this fall.

Danny Bilson, executive vice president, Core Game Production, discusses the game’s major selling point: superpowers.

“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,” Bilson said. “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.”

Game details provided by the official press release:

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.
