Saints Row: The Third's giant, super-powered DLC that was expected to come out later this year has been gobbled up by Saints Row 4. "Enter the Dominatrix" will now be a part of the next installment of the franchise, which is due to come out in 2013.
New THQ president Jason Rubin had this to say about the ambitious DLC:
When I looked at the Enter The Dominatrix expansion in production at Volition, I was blown away by the ideas and desire to expand the fiction of the franchise... I asked the team what it could achieve given more time, more resources, and a broader scope for the project. We all agreed we wanted to play that game. When it comes to Saints Row, it's clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top, and that's why Enter The Dominatrix will now be incorporated into a vastly expanded, full-fledged sequel, scheduled for calendar 2013.
Judging from recently released SR:TT add-ons, this is probably a good move. THQ has been abusively milking their downloadable cash cow with things like the Penthouse DLC (the secret ingredient is boobs!) and the "Witches and Wieners" pack (video below).
Warning: It's a Saints Row: The Third video. You should know what to expect.
They're charging people money for this.
Saints Row: The Third supports two player online co-op. It is available now for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It's actually quite good, even without all the DLC. Here's hoping Saints Row 4 has even more co-op options.
