‘Saints Row IV’ Season Pass Includes ‘Enter the Dominatrix’ DLC and a Butt Gun.

Deep Silver has announced a Season Pass and the first bit of downloadable content for Volition’s exultantly juvenile “Saints Row IV”: the previously canceled and apparently resurrected “Enter the Dominatrix” campaign.

“Enter the Dominatrix” was originally developed as a standalone expansion pack to “Saints Row: The Third” but was ultimately canceled. It would have introduced the alien abduction, virtual reality, and superhero plots that eventually got worked into “Saints Row IV.”

Those events will presumably be covered in the early parts of “Saints Row IV,” but “Dominatrix” will also offer a behind-the-scenes, “Director’s Cut” look at how the DLC was originally designed. Given the long road to release — it was being developed during the early stages of former publisher THQ’s implosion, after all — it seems Volition is to poke a little fun at their own (or Jason Rubin’s) expense.

During a panel during San Diego Comic-Con last week, Volition creative director Steve Jaros announced  that “Enter the Dominatrix” would be “Saints Row IV”’s first bit of DLC, launching roughly 45 days after the game’s August 20 launch date.

Unsurprisingly, “Enter the Dominatrix” will fall under the  “Saints Row IV” Season Pass, which also includes a second mission pack (released later this year) and the Rectifier weapon, which is, umm … well, it’s an anal probe gun. “Anal probe gun” is really the only thing you’ll ever need to know about the “Saints Row” franchise.

The Season Pass will be $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft points), which should save you about $5 on buying each batch of DLC individually, according to Deep Silver. “Saint’s Row IV” will be available on August 20 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows.
