Saint’s Row 4 Announced, Based Around Enter The Dominatrix DLC Originally Intended For Saint’s Row: The Third.

THQ have today announced that the standalone expansion pack for Saint’s Row: The Third, titled Enter the Dominatrix, which was set to bring superpowers and a whole host of other insanity to the game, is now going to be turned into a full-blown sequel to Saint’s Row: The Third, tentatively titled “The Next Great Sequel in the Saints Row Franchise.”

“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,” said Jason Rubin, THQ’s President. “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.”

Added Rubin, “We believe the potential for this sequel is far greater as a full-priced, full-length, high quality, connected experience.”

So, to get an idea of what Saint’s Row 4 will be like, we clearly need to go back and remind ourselves just what the hell the Enter the Dominatrix expansion pack was supposed to add to Saint’s Row: The Third.

Enter the Dominatrix was going to tell the story of the alien warlord Zinyak who has been eyeing up the Earth’s resources  and females for quite some time. As he prepares to attack, the only thing standing in his way are the Third Street Saints, who have gone from being simple street thugs to a global media sensation. So, to try to take down the Saints, Zinyak, rather strangely, captures their leader and sticks him in a virtual reality which mimics Steelport exactly.

Inside this virtual reality, though, you’ll be a little more powerful than you were. Here’s what was said in the original press release for Enter the Dominatrix: “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,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc. “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.”  

He later added, “Freaking super powers.”

So, based off of this, we can expect superpowers, mayhem, alien invasion and even more stupidity in Saint’s Row 4. Nice.
