Saints Row: The Third is getting a standalone character creation hub called the Initiaition Station, due out before the open world actioner launches later this year, publisher THQ has announced.

The app will let you fashion your own character for use in the full game and then upload it to a special community site for all to see. You'll also be able to download other users' creations and make your own tweaks to them.

THQ hasn't detailed exactly how the hub will be delivered, but confirmed it will available for free on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 "in advance of" Saints Row: The Third which is due out in late 2011.

Anyone who pre-orders Red Faction: Armageddon – due out 10th June - from GAME will receive an early access code.
