The PC version of Saints Row: The Third brings with it a handful of exclusive extras, developer Volition has revealed.

As detailed on the game's official site, the Steam version features the Saints Video Record Mode, which lets you record, save and share gameplay clips. You'll also be able to toggle the HUD on and off for cinematic effect.

Post launch, Volition is planning on offering PC users exclusive customisation options, including, oddly oversized bobblehead masks of Team Fortress 2 characters.

"Saints Row: The Third on PC is not a port, and it's our goal here at Volition to prove that to our PC fans," read Volition's announcement.

Confirmed support for AMD Eyefinity, DX9, DX10 and DX11, Crossfire, SLI, advanced depth of field, reflections and ambient occlusion quality provides additional evidence that Volition has put the effort in following the sub-par PC port of Saints Row 2 a few years back.
