With the launch of Saints Row: The Third just two months ago, THQ and Volition Inc. are busy readying upcoming downloadable content drops. While the Genki Bowl VII and CheapyD's free homie add-on packs are slated to arrive on January 17, THQ has one more surprise up its sleeve for PC owners.
After teaming up with Valve, PC owners of Saints Row: The Third will soon be able to dress up their Saints avatars in Team Fortress 2 apparel. The items of clothing in question consist of nine Team Fortress 2 masks. The nine disguises will automatically be downloaded via Steam's updater on January 17, and they can then be used in the game straightaway.
This isn't the first time the 3rd Street Saints have crossed paths with the seasoned warriors of Team Fortress 2; earlier this month, Valve released three Saints Row: The Third-themed in-game items for Team Fortress 2, which were exclusive to those who preordered THQ's open-world game.
Saints Row: The Third sees the 3rd Street Saints expand into a new city called Steelport and take on an international gang that's trying to take them out. Before the game's release, THQ announced that preorders for Saints Row: The Third had quadrupled those of its predecessor, and THQ expects the game to reach the coveted 3 million copies shipped by March.
