Because the giant purple phalluses were getting old

Saints Row The Third will be getting a stand-alone expansion pack called "Enter the Dominatrix," THQ announced today in a press release. Though it will be based off of the story, characters, and engine of Saints Row The Third, this will be an entirely new retail product that won't require SR3 to play.

According to the press release, the expansion will include the number one most requested addition from fans of the Saints Row series: super powers.

The story involves a powerful alien warlord who has his sights set on conquering Earth. The only thing standing in his way is the Third Street Saints, who have now become a global empire.

"Now, in order to prepare his forces for domination, Zinyak captures the leader of the Saints and imprisons him in an elaborate virtual reality simulation," reads the press release. "This simulation program looks and feels like Steelport, but it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. Here, you are a slave. Welcome… to the Dominatrix."

This "Dominatrix" dimension seems to be the narrative excuse for giving players super powers. Though we're not really concerned with "why" we'll have super powers. As long as we get to fly and shoot laser beams.
