Saints Row: The Third Introduces The Saints Row Initiation Station, Who Can Create The Craziest Characters?
THQ and Volition have just revealed the Saints Row Initiation Station, where players can create and share the most outlandish videogame characters ever seen, and then download them as playable characters in the upcoming Saints Row: The Third, scheduled for release this holiday. Nobody will accuse THQ of not really pushing SRT3 but its starting to make me wonder whether they are trying to compensate for a less than stellar game. At this point it is too early to tell but we will keep an eye on this as we start to see more real gameplay footage.
- Play as characters inspired by your favorite downward-spiraling train wreck celebrity, prima donna professional athlete, or as Steelport’s newest costumed superhero (or villain).
- Save your master creations and share them with friends. Download other characters for your own use and tweak them just the way you like.
- Collaborate with a friend to create your own dynamic duo for co-op play. Cowboy and Indian? Dominatrix and sex slave? Tag-team wrestling partners with sordid pasts? Your twisted imagination is the limit.
The Saints Row Initiation Station will be available free on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in advance of the release of Saints Row: The Third this holiday. As a special bonus, early purchasers of Volition’s upcoming destruction-fest Red Faction: Armageddon, will be granted early access to the Initiation Station. Players will receive an early-access code prior to the release of Saints Row: The Third this holiday.
