Saints Row: The Third gets stand-alone expansion

$30 Enter the Dominatrix introduces super powers to open-world crime series, arrives on Xbox 360, PS3, PC this fall.

by

Saints Row: The Third is likely to get even more ridiculous, as THQ today announced Enter the Dominatrix, a stand-alone expansion to last year's over-the-top open-world crime game.

Anyone up for another dose of Saints Row: The Third?

Set for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Enter the Dominatrix will introduce super powers to the world of Saints Row. The game will see the Third Street Saints targeted by aliens who view their leader as the only possible impediment to their plans for world domination. To eliminate that impediment, the aliens kidnap the gang's leader and trap him in a virtual replica of Third Street Saints stomping ground Steelport nicknamed the Dominatrix.

The original Saints Row: The Third launched last November to a strong critical reception. The game picked up with the Third Street Saints after the gang had grown to the point of becoming a brand, complete with licensed sneakers, energy drinks, and bobbleheads. However, that success put them at odds with a criminal fraternity called the Syndicate, drawing the group into a new turf war. The game has been added to four times through downloadable content, but Enter the Dominatrix will be the first stand-alone expansion for Saints Row: The Third.

You greedy...motherfuckers.  If you want to play that way then I'll get this game in two years...used.  I've bought every one of their games at full price and this is the final straw.

It still won't be as good as Saints Row 2 and its just a complete cash in on the franchise. Disapointed!

A $30 expansion on its own is fine (like PC games back in the day), but a $30 expansion on top of an entire season's pass worth of content that people paid for is lame as hell.

Too bad current gen consoles can't process the Super Secret Season Pass, otherwise this would be free for a lot of people.

Tee hee hee, and this won't be part of the season pass :)   Forza guys pulled the same crap, when they released teh May car pack.  Sure, nobody expected another pack, but point is "Season" to me implies "1 year of shit I've already paid for" not.. "shit paid for in advance".

$30 seems a lot to pay for DLC, superpowers or not.

LOL, when I saw this on the official website, I thought it was just an April fools days joke.

Still i didn`t pay for one of SR3 DLC, cause the PSN card for the Europe version is so expensive and i`m bankrupt. but its ok i won`t sell it for this reason cause its great and epic game. :)

alien abduction, super powers, if we can choose super powers in this then it might as well be a parody of dc universe

Damit!  I already bought the season pass where they "teased" the powers for a couple of minutes but now we have to pay $30 for the "full experience".  This is BS

I actually didn't think it was possible for this game to get stranger...they proved me wrong!!

Volition sucks. The PC version is terrible. I don't even play the game because I still can't get a playable framrate. Having said that I will NOT be buying this DLC.

Saints Row The Third was quite good even if the PC release was buggy. $30 for a paint job on a 6 month old release is tough to swallow though. They're definitely a little DLC happy with this game. I'll pass.

So this is Saints Row 3.5?

Saints row the third was amazing. This is what clones of other games should do. I am looking at you bloodforge. I think there nothing wrong with mimicking something, but if you are not going to make it better then don't make it at all.

SR3 > GTA4 .... ill buy any DLC that comes

I thought this game was already at the maximum possible level of stupidity. Heh. I guess there are new, uncharted levels of retardation yet to be realized. I'd buy it.

Ugh.. I thought the hero entering the plane from the front, killing everyone inside while he glides through the plane, and exiting through the cargo hold before saving the chick... was already superpower...?

 the second is WAY better than the third but the second made only improvements from the first

This game's pretty system-intensive. It runs mine smooth as butter off a bald monkey's head. But to be fair, my PC's not even a year old.

 @EdLazow Mine runs at a solid 30 frames. It's your PC that sucks.

 @Kastigador How is something like implementing super-powers a paint job? If it were just new outfits, I would agree. But it's more than that.

PC version has better effects, better shadows, better draw distance, and actual SSAO. You need a decent GPU to run those.

 @RedWave247  @Kastigador Idk about you but I'm pretty damn pissed that they didn't let us keep the super powers in the trouble with clones.  I mean I bought the game, bought season pass and now they want me to shell out $30 for this!?  It may not be a paint job but I shouldn't have to be paying the price of half of a game when I already spent so much.

So being able to fly and firing different kinds of projectile attacks with your hands is worth $30? I'm having a hard time imagining how much they can do with this engine that doesn't just make it a $30 one-trick pony mod makeover. Hopefully I'm wrong. When more details are released I'll know for sure.

 @Kastigador I never said it was worth $30 or worth anything. Don't put words in my mouth. I'm saying that my definition of a paint job is purely aesthetics (costumes, literally paint jobs, etc), not gameplay.

 

And are you suggesting that flying around unassisted would NOT be fun? I may be biased, though, as my icon will indicate.
