Be yourself with the Saints Row: Initiation Station beta

25 Oct 2011 by Paul Younger
Early access to the Saints Row: The Third character creator launches for a select few. Anybody who purchased the Saints Row: Double Pack or pre-ordered Red Faction: Armageddon and has redeemed their Initiation Station beta code at the official Saints Row site should be getting a download code emailed to them later today. Everyone else will have to wait until 1 November to download the stand-alone character creation program from either Xbox Live, PlayStation Network or Steam. It'll be a freebie. But what can you do with such a thing? The trailer below explains, with the help of two somewhat unconvincing housewives. Despite all its shameless crudity, Saints Row: The Third may have one of the most progressive character creation kits around. I mean, going from the evidence of the new screenshots (also below), you can literally run around as a guy in a giant pig suit. And then shoot some cops ... wait, did this just go back to being offensive again? That's the paradox of Saints Row.
