Saints Row: The Third
Saints Row: The Third Expansion Enter the Dominatrix Cancelled, Folded into Saints Row 4
Written By
View author's profile

THQ has ceased plans to release Saints Row: The Third’s standalone expansion, Enter the Dominatrix.

Instead, the publisher is incorporating the content into what it’s calling “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 THQ president Jason Rubin.

"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."

The game is due to launch at some point after April next year.

No. Fuck sake. I was really looking forward to messing around in Steelport with 'freakin super powers' at the end of this year, but not anymore. I'm all for SR4, but after the let downs which were the add ons for SR3, I wanted an expansion worthwhile.

Im guessing they didn't factor that when they brought out the 3 dlc packs and that waste of time season pass.

personally wanted this to come out as I really enjoyed STT. Bring on next April I guess.

SOOOO The Season pass has been one big scam? First none of the actualy item DLC was included. Now we get a entire DLC removed but i bet they still count it as one of the'intended' DLC's... Will not be getting a season pass for saints row again.

I felt raped, when I bought The Third and the season pass.....

So I'll be holding off on the fourth until either a price drop or some good reviews, and i don't usually care much for reviews as it the users opinion that matters.

Whilst I'm sad this won't be coming this year, if they could base the whole next game around that same premise it may be the best game ever made.

This DLC was never intended for the Season Pass. In fact, the only way you could have got this expansion was at retail. However, I do agree that the Season Pass was a waste of money for the content you did get.

Roll on SR4 then.

Season Pass was a bit of a waste, but this was never part of it, at least read what you're paying for when you are laying down $20 or whatever it costed. I'd rather have SR4 anyway, and its going to be included in that so no need to complain.

@#9,#6,#2 You all do realise Enter the Dominatrix was never apart of the season pass
Here's the description of the Season Pass

"Saints Row: The Third Season Pass includes the listed game content at a discounted rate over individual purchases. If you own this Season Pass all content should be accessed through the in-game store AND NOT DOWNLOADED from Xbox LIVE Marketplace or you will be charged twice. Nyte Blayde Pack, Genkibowl VII, Gangstas in Space, The Trouble With Clones. Saints Row: The Third game required; sold separately"

As you can see it clearly doesn't say its part of the season pass.

I really don't like this new take on Saints Row. I never played Saints Row or Saints Row 2 because it was over-the-top. I played it because it had a nice mix between arcade and realism. The game was fun, but could still get serious in the appropriate moments(carlos' death?). Unlike in SR3 where they kill off the main character in the first 15 minutes(off-screen too) like it's no big deal.

I just wanted to say that because of his comment, "When it comes to Saints Row, it's clear our fans want bigger, better, and even more over the top". I never asked for that. I see more people asking for a better story. Some mission/cutscene replay. Better customization. Not a dildo or some stupid fart in a jar.

Most people did read what would come with the season pass, the problem was people expected more than 30 minutes worth of play from a piece of DLC .
What we should be worrying about is SR4 , will it be this stand alone expansion with a few extra missions boxed up and sold at full price
THQ have certainly soured the experience of season passes for many peoples a I can see this having a negative impact on sales for the SR series

It wasn't DLC it was a stand-alone disc based game. kind of like DR2: off the record, technically it's just a different take on the same game and it would be cheaper that a full new game because much of the groundwork has already been laid out.

this is a very smart move by THQ, because they know by when Enter the Dominatrix was suppose to come out, everyone will be playing GTA V and Hitman Absolution, Bioshock infinite, CoD Black ops 2, Halo 4, Borderlands 2, they're is a whole slew of games THQ would've had to try and out battle. i'm not saying it wouldnt sell, but it just wouldnt sell like they want it to. So i'm not suprised by them pushing this back, i'm disappointed but not suprised.

Season Pass = at most, 3 hours of additional gameplay. After all that, they decide to release add-ons for clothes and a Penthouse Pack, which I'm sure it sold oh so well. You completed the DLC to find that you can use superpowers only when you are in that particular mission and nowhere else, so they decided to make an entire new thing out of it, by charging the consumer over $20 for it. Mind you, they have IGNORED all of the cries from fans to add some sort of support to re-do missions, similar to SR2.

No sympathy from me. Give and take, in 5 years, THQ will be apart of video game history, lost in debt.

silly people fussing about season passes when the pass always tells you exactly what you get. it said nothing about a stand alone expansion you poo poo heads! you can't read a description when you buy something? or do you always assume you get everything ever made for the game instead of saving 800 msp on major dlc releases?

And this is why I just stick with the first game on it's own. More realistic, darker, interesting (without feeling the need to go over the top) and it gives it an awesome ending that is pretty well tied up and doesn't need to be continued.

All the mini-packs of dlc should have been included in the season pass. In my opinion, which I'm sure a lot of people will agree with, the actual mission packs were too short. The best one was Genki Bowl, but who doesn't love Professor Genki?

@43, dont get me wrong the game is actually a lot of fun, the DLC was also... it was all just too short, compared to the first 2 saints rows the third has hardly any content in it at all, most of the missions were just activities in disguise and the activities had been stripped back to a single level each instance compared to 8 in the first game and 6 in the second and the number of actual missions is half if not less that of SR2.

add to that the linearity of it all, sure theres a couple of choices in the game but only 1 effects anything and you can do it twice to get both sides anyway where in SR1 and 2 you can literally pick and choose what missions to do when

they also stripped most of the customization out of it despite saying there would be more, the character builder was nice but after you started the game the options compared to SR2 were lacking in pretty much every area like in SR2 you could layer up clothes to get a completely unique outfit, in 3 you were stripped of half the options for that and then the houses were all exactly the same compared the the many unique and customization ones in SR2

and Streelport itself was more like still water in SR1, a bland and uninteresting city which after all the improvements SR2 made to stillwater was a real shame.

and the story itself was just bad in comparison, the saints turned from the ruthless gang that we love into a bunch of pussies, the boss would never have stood for any f the crap the syndicate threw at him/her in SR2. where was the sadistic spirit, the crushing people with monster trucks, the tatooing people with nuclear waste, the blowing guitarists hands off with pyrotechnics? In SR2 they killed a gang member he/shed just met and they went on a murderous rampage for revenge, in 3 they killed someone we knew and loved and he/she let most of them go and didnt seem to even care half the time.

It was a fun game just compared to what came before it it was just half assed and for what? to have some stupid childish gimmicks thrown in and to sell a tonne of crap as DLC

SR3 was good but SR2 was great. Loads of costumes and weapons you didn't have to pay $3 each for and the ability to replay missions without starting a new game. Not to mention it wasn't trying WAY too hard to be funny like a long episode of Futurama or something. "Oh, look, zombies. And we're IN the video game?! Autotuned pimp, yo." God, more of that is coming?

Really upset they cancelled this, was waiting for it to come out to get me hyped for the sequel (not that I already am), just like Case Zero did for Dead Rising 2. Can't wait for Saints Row 4, it'd be nice if they changed the premise of their season pass a bit and make the mission packs a little longer next time.

It definitely won't be coming out April 2013 as it'll have a more famous open-world title to contend with. Good thing Lee Bradley typed 'after April' and some of you glossed over that. :p
September 2013 at the earliest.

They need to make a city like Stillwater where each segment has it's own character instead of Steelport where it felt like every island had skyscraper, a residential area, port, etc. Plus those bridges felt like they went on forever.

Given THQ's money issues I'm surprised they thought releasing this as a stand alone release would be a good idea.

@18: I couldn't agree more. What worked so well about Saints Row and Saints Row 2 was the wackiness mixed in with the realism. What happened to Shogo in #2 was both over the top and satisfying as you know that would be scary as hell if it actually happened. What happened to Phillipe in #3? Over the top, but also stupid.

I don't want more over the top. I want a better story again. I want activities to not be used as filler missions so the game will seem longer. I want them to stop cutting out content to sell as overpriced DLC packs. And I want the actual mission based DLC they make to be worth the money instead of always being 3 short, boring missions.

I fully played and finished this last SR3 and even i enjoyed it very much when it comes to the graphics and the game-mechanics, i somehow felt dissapointed by the story and the fact that where SR1 & SR2 where about gangs and some over the top gunplay, i kinda missed that in SR3, okay you had a great set of guns that you could upgrade ect, but storywise i def missed thedifferent sets of gangs you had in lets say SR2. I always saw SR as the over the top brother (or sister depends on how you look at it) from GTA, because in SR you could do stuff you coudn,t do in GTA.
I def feel sorry for all that went and bought that season pass, i must admit i was close getting it but somehow i start thinking i might be better off just buy the stuff i realy want lose instead, as it turned out not a bad choice.
Hopefully in SR4 they go back to the roots of SR2 or SR1 and incorperate a better story and just gangwars instead of zombies and mutated superfreaks.

I enjoyed SR3, but I didn't really like the city it was set in. Only way I buy SR4 is if it's in a new city, but I doubt that will be the case if they are rolling this DLC into the SR4.

Bring back Septic Avenger and Fuzz

Go back to tags & CDs for the collectibles

give us a huge varied map like Stillwater. Steelport had little variety and required looking at the map constantly.

get rid of Snatch & Escort. They weren't fun in the first game, they aren't fun in 3 in any variation....with the possible exception of Tiger Escort

SR2 level soundtrack. 3's wasn't bad, just meh. Though I really only care about the 80's tunes and electronica.

all story missions should be missions, not activities.

Chop Shop should be like in SR2. I'm fucking sick of seeing "the target vehicle has been destroyed" when I AM DRIVING IT AND IT IS PERFECTLY FINE

Don't kill of good characters AT ALL, or at least not off screen 10 minutes in....

DLC mission packs should be substantial and any unique new weapons/vehicles/powers should be unlockable. Also, no more nickel & dime weapon/outfit disc-locked crap.

its unfair to the series and to all games like it and to top it off there was multiple games like this before GTA

@49 - Nah, they only fail when a company like THQ only includes three shitty add-ons, choosing instead to focus on masses of codes to unlock on-disc stuff. The Forza 4 was fine, for instance.

Do Saints Row 3 again, with a few simple changes:

1) If you bring back invincibility options, add in an option to TOGGLE them on and off.
2) Online multiplayer only two players? Come on. What year are we in? Four players or more online, please.

Other than that, this news is just fine. Just don't get overly ambitious. Don't rush the game, don't half-ass any part of it, I'll be in Gamestop buying it the day of release.

I enjoyed SR, and loved SR2. TT was good fun, but flawed, and the business decision ruined it almost entirely. I'm done with the series, it seems, discontent with both the artistic direction and the money-grabbing ways of THQ and Volition.

Hopefully saints row 4 will be more like 2 was with better customization, Bring back the Tags & CD's & let us re-watch the pretty decent cutscenes like you could in 2, Don't force us to do the annoying mini missions either, And cut back on the stupidity a bit, If not i won't even be bothering with 4.

SR3 was my most anticipated game of last year after being a huge SR2 fan but ended up being my biggest disappointment of the year.

@71, the multiplayer was just right... or would have been if it wasent for the silly "whored mode"

just because you can have stupid amount of people on a multiplayer game now doenst mean you should, a game like this doesnt need it...

@75

I suppose we are both late to the Season Pass discussion. You should have known that the Season Pass was for nothing when the little $3 packs weren't included and when the last DLC that the Season Pass covered was released.

It clearly stated in the Season Pass that the only things in it were the Nyteblade Pack, Genki Bowl, Gangstas in Space and Trouble with the Clones. This EXPANSION (not DLC, a standalone expansion that was to be bought in stores on a disc) was never included in the Season Pass. This is something you would know if you read the comments, this has only been mentioned about 10 times already.

74: Oh, okay. So four of my friends own this game and will play it at any given time, and you think it's cool, these days, to have to pick one to play with? I'm not talking about city-wide chaos like in GTA4, those modes are fucking stupid. But to be able to have more than two players in one match was even implied by THQ themselves after SR2 was released. If I want to hang out with two or three friends in a game, that's not a far-fetched concept, nor does it ruin the essence of the game. Don't be a troll.

@77its not far fetched no but its not completely practical either adding co op to a game isnt just as simple as allowing another person to join and the more people you add the more difficult it is to get right

the Dev cant just decide "well to make sure everyones happy lets just make it so any number of people can join a world and do what they want" they have to make sure the games still fun and ultimately playable with more people in it

In a game like this every extra person you have playing effectively doubles the load that the servers and consoles have to deal with for starters, since each player can wonder anywhere in the city an extra set of entities has to be spawned there, then every action taken is doubled and every fight they get in has to show on both consoles aswell.. then theres the fact that this game is full co op so all missions need to be balanced so that they arent stupidly easy with 4 players yet arent too hard with 1

what they provided was a fun co op mode that works its not an issue at all

Pissed that this was cancelled, but with any luck they'll be able to expand it into SR4 and make the game more awesome.. but to be honest, I want them to re-incorporate the balance of goofiness and drama like they did in SR2... and bring back Septic Avenger and Crowd Control. those were awesome. An expanded Guardian Angel, and the dumping of Mayhem or Tank Mayhem would also be appreciated.
