Enter the Dominatrix, the standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third that never saw the light of day, will be released as DLC for this year's Saints Row 4.

First announced in May last year, and originally scheduled for release in 2012, the expansion was to introduce super-powers and incorporate extra-terrestrials - both ideas that are core to Saints Row 4. A month after it was announced, Jason Rubin - then president of now departed publisher THQ - confirmed that the expansion was going to be rolled into Saints Row 4.

And it now seems it's still going to see the light of day, but as an expansion to the forthcoming game.

"It was a very interesting process just doing the expansion pack, and the team came up with a lot of very good ideas," Volition's Jim Boone told Eurogamer. "But one of the things that we've often talked about is we didn't feel like we had enough time to take the features we were doing and really blow them out the way we'd want to.

"Ultimately, we were able to bring those elements to the full game, and it ended up really well."

"We still liked what we were doing with Enter the Dominatrix, and we're planning on doing a director's cut for that as a DLC pack," said Boone. "So that will still see the light of day in a fairly modified way. It'll probably be released as Saints Row 4: Enter the Dominatrix, just from a marketing perspective."

Saints Row 4 was one of the potential casualties of the THQ closure in February, although it was quickly picked up by Deep Silver, and is slated for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this August. There are currently no plans to release on any of the next generation consoles.
