Saints Row DLC News: Steam Edition

sr3-tf2

When Volition studios released Saints Row: The Third last November, they promised to follow up the launch with an unprecedented amount of downloadable content. So far, I think they’ve done a pretty good job of living up to that promise. The latest round of DLC, however, is a bit… well, limited. Read on for the details.

As announced on their website, players with the Steam version of the game will be receiving a special treat this Thursday. Billed as “the final chapter” of cross promotional material between Volition and Valve, nine oversized novelty masks will be made available in-game, each one represeting a class from Valve’s iconic Team Fortress 2. The masks will be added to the game through a compatibility patch, which means you don’t have to do anything to get them… other than owning the Steam version of Saints Row: The Third, of course. Sadly, folks like me who have the console version of the game are out of luck. It’s too bad, since a Spy mask would have gone beautifully with the bright red tutu my character has been running around in lately. Oh well.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
