Enter the Dominatrix was originally intended to be a standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third, but got scrapped when THQ went bankrupt. Now that Volition is taking care of the series though, it looks like the long-awaited expansion will finally be arriving. The problem that many are having with this news though, is what was told at Comic Con by Steve Jaros, the game’s creative director.
Jaros told fans that while the expansion will get its release, with new content to boot, it will be released 45 days after the initial release of Saints Row IV as paid DLC. People tend to have an issue with DLC being announced before a game is even released because it implies that they could just put it in the game, but are choosing not to because they want more money. In this case, it’s been a bit of a debate between fans though, because it’s not “Day 1 DLC”, a situation in which a publisher releases DLC on the same day as the game it’s for. The fact that it is being released a month and a half later implies that it isn’t done yet, so they’re still working on it.
Either way, I’m glad to see this expansion being released, but I’d have to see the content first to decide if it is worth the money it will cost to buy it. Let’s hope that it was worth the wait.
