Enter The Dominatrix will be first DLC for Saints Row IV

Volition reveals canceled Saints Row: The Third expansion coming to new game about 45 days after launch.

by

Enter The Dominatrix, the canceled expansion pack for Saints Row: The Third, will be the first downloadable content offering for Saints Row IV.

Volition creative director Steve Jaros revealed the news at a San Diego Comic-Con panel attended by Game Informer. Jaros said players can expect the content to launch about 45 days after Saints Row IV is released on August 20.

A price point for the Enter The Dominatrix DLC was not divulged.

Enter The Dominatrix would have been Saints Row: The Third's first stand-alone expansion, following multiple smaller downloadable content packs. It was set to follow on from the events of the main game with an alien abduction plot and the addition of superpowers.

Perfect reason to wait til this thing is in the discount bin.  I've got enough to do that I don't have to bend over and spread my cheeks.

lmfao I remember they where all like "well we have scrapped it to just put it on the next game" as if to say we are basically doing you a favor....well gee thanks. SR games will always be fun....but its a real shame the route this series has taken. After SR2 and GTA4 I genuinely thought GTA had some REAL tough competition with SR2 in a lot of ways being better than GTA4. But sadly SR has taken the "DLC this dlc that" "rush" approach. After SR3 it becamse clear GTA5 is going to just absolutely MURDER it...and I doubt SR4 will be any different. If SR3 and SR4 were one game I have no doubts GTA5 will crush it in essentially every way possible. Gone from legit competition to this....

They could at least not announce it until a few months after the game is released. Why even bother calling it DLC? They should just say on release "You can buy the full game for 120$ or half the game for 60$"

Well Gangstas in Space was about the best DLC I've ever played so hopefully they can continue putting out quality DLC and not a cash grab like Genkibowl was.

Well I'm pretty sure the next gen is going to be like this, with Xbone screwing people over without hesitation and Sony putting a payroll for the online play. We're all fucked either way....

I still don't understand how people are defending this.  This is like going to a restaurant, paying for a meal, and having them tell you "Oh, sorry, we know you paid for a meal, but we're going to have to cancel the appetizer, dessert and drink.  We had some problems in the kitchen, it was out of our control.  But the NEXT time you come here, you're going to get those things you paid for!"  So you're pissed, but you love the food, so eventually you go back, and they tell you "Ok, we have the drink, dessert and appetizer you paid for last time you were here.....but you have to pay for it again if you want it."  Maybe not the best comparison, but Im struggling to think of an example as ridiculous as this massive ripoff they are trying to perpetrate on gamers.

This is just even more proof how disgusting the gaming industry has become and how warped the idea of downloadable content should be distributed. This is just sickening..

Oh, look! The game is not out yet! You can still add this to the full game instead!

I cant see why people are complaining about this, with the refusal to go digital from the console gaming masses, developers/publishers are going to be putting more and more content behind DLC pay walls.

You reap what you sow.

DLC, 45 days after release, annouced 1 month before release, which was originally planned for the previous game. Seriously? You seriously couldn't put it in the game?

I was liking what I was seeing so far, looked fun, but all I can say is fuck you, I'm not supporting this. This butchering is not worth full price.

Not do be a downer. I lover Saints Row and this game looks good but it looks just like the Third. :(

They obviously have bigger download content on tap, so the Enter the Dominatrix content is just a diversion so they can get the real Saints Row 4 DLC going.

Ya. Thats it. I'm not buying the DLC. As for the game, I'm not so sure I wanna spend on it anymore. I'll buy it later, on the cheap or not buy it at all because of this.

announcing dlc before the game comes out.

im still waiting for COD ghosts to outline their slew of dlc.

---sleezy game industry withholding content and rubbing it in---

I was actually interested in buying SRIV but not anymore. You're telling me that DLC that was being worked on for the LAST Saint's Row game can't be implemented into the new one for free?

I'm so sick of developer greed getting ahead of delivering a complete game. I saw a tweet recently that said something like "last generation was about giving you free extra games within the game you just bought. This generation is about giving you incomplete games".

i'm sick of withholding content only to sell it as seperate new content, especially so soon after release.

ShadowOfKratos
ShadowOfKratos

I really hate this type of news. (Not hating on you Eddie)

I just can't understand why one would deliberately announce seperate content for a game that hasn't even been released yet. Worse is... It's been planned and most likely worked on since the prequel was released.

PaulJanson

lolol Fanboy much? What with this "Murikah" attitude? Ya dislike because it's a DLC? Why do you guys talk as if you're forced into buying it. If you enjoy the game then why not just buy the game and avoid that DLC since it doesn't appeal to you. If it has nothing to do with the story, meaning that you're not missing out on anything, then what's wrong? Why do ya feel titled to everything that comes out? I for one won't be buying this game, not because of DLC smh, but because of what's been done to the series.

That DLC should be included in this new (ahem) game, or try to pretend your not screwing us and call is something different. Damn.

Joefatty2x4

Wait... You gotta be freakin kidding me. They originally announced and planned on making this DLC for SR3. Then announced that the DLC would actually evolve into the new game, and now they're announcing that they with-held the content from the game so that they could make us pay extra for it as DLC? What a bunch of scumbags. I'm completely fed up with DLC these days, it's nothing but greed. I wont support it and I wont purchase an incomplete game, therefore SR4 i'm giving you the boot out the door. See ya in a couple years when the SR4: Full Package goes on a $5-10 Steam sale.

@cboye18 people paid for online multiplayer in this gen so I don't see how that's a negative. I'm getting a PS4 anyway but I can clearly see that XB1 doesn't intimidate gamers. If they try anything funny people will be dumping these consoles into Ebay. That being said, they're going to sell millions anyway.   

Last I checked, PC gaming was doing alright though.

@slightlyrob I feel like it would be going into a restaurant, ordering your food with a picture next to it. Then when you ask the waiter where all of your food is at, he tells you that to get the whole meal you needed to buy the side salad DLC pack and they nickel and dime you for wheat buns instead of the stock white costume they come with. And that if you were do go ahead and buy the dessert season pass you can get it for not 10, not 15, but 20% off if you act now.

@pspearman the problem we have is the fact that when this was cancelled, they said it would be a part of the main game in 4. Now they're telling us it's dlc. they lied to us, that's the problem.  It has nothing to do with "going digital"

telaros

@RiKanKiDD Because it was originally going to beDLC for SR3. Personally not getting this at launch.They took out a fun part of the game to sell back to us already before the game is even out.

I'll wait till 50% off or whatever.

@Mega_Loser I'm sick of people complaining because companies add to their games.  If you don't like it then just stick with the main game.  Or wait a year and get the full package deal.  Or wait a year and a half for the full package deal at 75% off.

Zloth2

@inkyspot Because buying the game means you have the right to EVERYTHING the developers have worked on since they thought of the game?

@inkyspot wasn't enter the dominatrix meant to have been 4? That's what they said when the game was announced

@Joefatty2x4 

I wouldn't call it an "incomplete" game simply because DLC isn't included in the package. They did not have to make that additional content. Had they not made the additional content, you would have accepted the package as a complete game.

While I agree that DLC is rather scummy and is obviously just a ploy to lure is into giving up more of our hard-earned cash, I think people should take a moment to think before ranting about it because, by their logic, no game is ever complete because additional content could always potentially be made and should be included within the original game.

Costumer: "Whoa! WTF?!"

Seller: "What? Oh wait don't tell me you wanted a CUP of water? Cups are two dollars"

Costumer: "What?!? You know what, fine! Here's $2, give me a cup of water...........What do you mean it's $2.50? You mean I have to pay for the water AGAIN!?! MOTHERF*****!!"

You get it now???? Go to sleep before mommy catches you. ^_^

I am not saying that. Developers have to make money, but with the demise of THQ and the game looking itself like a DLC (rushed and a flimsy story), they should have included it in, or make it free for anyone that pre-orders the game. I am sure they have much more ideas that will come out down the line if the game does well.

@Purplekjw @Joefatty2x4 I agree that DLC is an "extra", and not required to enjoy the core game.  But the issue here isn't just that's it's DLC, it's the fact that this DLC has already been paid for by anyone who purchased the season pass for SR3.  Those gamers got short-changed, and paid for promised content that was never delivered.  So now those same gamers are expected to pay AGAIN for the same content they already paid for once.  Im not complaining about having to pay for DLC.  I understand that it is content above and beyond the core game, and should not be free.  But once said content is paid for, it should be delivered.  Not paid for, cancelled, then paid for again.  This is a slap in the face to anyone who bought the SR3 season pass, and wasn't given the content they paid for.

@Strider8009 @PaulJanson My question is did you buy that DLC already? because I'm pretty sure it was NEVER released nor was it included in the season pass of SR3. Maybe you don't understand being "nickle and dimed" :^/
