Saints Row IV: Enter the Dominatrix DLC incoming

Deep Silver has just announced that Saints Row the Third’s DLC, that later turned into a full-blown game (SRIV) is happening after all. Saints Row IV is about to get even weirder (and probably even more awesome)

Yes, it’s sort of the same story that Saints Row IV tells already – but it’s radically different in how it tells it.

The canceled Saints Row the Third expansion sees new life as the first DLC mission pack for Saints Row IV. In this alternate take on the Zin invasion storyline, Zinyak and the legions of his alien empire trap the Saints in a virtual world run by a mad AI program known as the Dominatrix. In order to thwart her nefarious schemes and escape to the real world, the Saints will have to counter her army of gimps and sex-workers, shut down her demented simulation, and make unlikely allies along the way. Includes behind-the-scenes commentary and the return of some fan-favorite characters.

Love the idea of the behind-the-scenes stuff, that’s a great idea. Certainly, Enter the Dominatrix is something that fans of the series should be familiar with by this point. Saints Row IV not only expanded upon the original premise of the DLC pack that was planned for Saints Row the Third, but made it into one of the very best games of the year (read our review for why).

Still, EtD should have more than enough ‘new’ content for players to get crazy with since there’s basically a whole new tale being told here. It does share some elements with the main quest from Volition’s open-world masterpiece, but all of the periphery is new and different. It should be very interesting to see just what would have been if Saints Row IV never happened.

Enter the Dominatrix will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions of Saints Row IV on October 22nd. There’s a Livestream of the game planned for the 23rd as well, where you can watch the devs have a crack at the Dominatrix. That’ll be from 1pm to 4pm central time and you can find it here. Following the Dominatrix up will be the final piece of DLC planned for Saints Row IV- How the Saints Saved Christmas (can’t wait for that one).

Expect some holiday hijinks before the end of the year.
