Plot

When an alien invasion occurs, the president is sent to a simulation of Steelport, where he/she must use superpowers to fight against the alien invasion.


Development


During an interview with X-Play after the release of Saints Row: The Third, THQ executive VP Danny Bilson revealed that Volition was already working on Saints Row 4. "Like any game, if you have a great creative core to it you just keep exploiting that core," he told G4. "For instance," he continued, "I know what Saints Row 4 is about and it is wilder than this one. It's a good example of how you take what you have and you ask, 'what could happen in the next?" added Bilson, without giving up any actual details.

On March 3, 2012, Volition announced a standalone game that would not require Saints Row: The Third to play, entitled Saints Row: The Third - Enter the Dominatrix. The game would take place 1 year after the events of Saints Row: The Third and was set for release for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The official description: "Saints Row: The Third - Enter the Dominatrixpicks 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.". On 18 June, it was confirmed that the game had been redirected to be a full sequel and will be released in conjunction with Saints Row 4 in 2013. It was later affirmed that Enter the Dominatrix will be downloadable content for Saints Row 4.
