THQ and Volition are Proud to Announce the Saints Row Initiation Station

Where players can create, share and download the most outlandish videogame characters ever seen, and then upload them as playable characters in the upcoming Saints Row: The Third, scheduled for release this holiday. More details, plus screenshots and boxart, after the jump.

• Play as your favorite train wreck celebrity-turned reality TV star, take aim as your least favorite overpaid prima donna professional athlete, or don a cape as Steelport’s newest superhero (or villain).
• Save your master creations and share them with friends. Download other characters for your own use, or tweak them just the way you like.
• Collaborate with a friend to create your own dynamic duo for co-op play. Cowboy and Indian? Dominatrix and sex slave? Tag-team wrestling partners with sordid pasts? Your twisted imagination is the limit.

The Saints Row Initiation Station will be available free on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC in advance of the release of Saints Row: The Third this holiday.
