THQ announced today that Saints Row: The Third will be getting a new expansion called “Enter the Dominatrix”. The update will add  “freaking super powers” to the game at the low price of $30 (US). However, THQ has clarified that this addition will apparently not be  DLC but in fact a “boxed retail product”.

This will be a stand alone product that apparently can even be played without owning Saints Row: The Third disc. Enter the Dominatrix will only be available at retail outlets and is scheduled for a release sometime this fall.

Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Game Production, THQ Inc description of the content:

“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 inSaints Row, it’s up to you,”

Here is THQ description of the actual content in “Enter the Dominatrix”:

Saints Row: The Third – Enter the Dominatrix picks up immediately following the events of Saints Row: The Third. For centuries, alien warlord Zinyak has eyed Earth and its precious natural resources and females with a watchful eye. As he prepares an armada for invasion, he has only one worry: the Third Street Saints.

Once a simple street gang from Stilwater, the Saints have evolved into a global empire, replete with bombastic TV advertising and tasteful consumer products, the kind of TV advertising and consumer products that would give any alien warlord pause. Clearly, the Saints are the biggest badasses on Earth.

Now, in order to prepare his forces for domination, Zinyak captures the leader of the Saints and imprisons him in an elaborate virtual reality simulation. This simulation program looks and feels like Steelport, but it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. Here, you are a slave. Welcome… to the Dominatrix.

Thirty dollars for an upgrade that will give my Saints leader superpowers I think I will have to spend the money, as long as there is enough content to justify the purchase.
