THQ and Volition today announced the Saints Row: The Third community has created more than one million characters in the Saints Row Initiation Station.
With the free Initiation Station demo, available now on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam, players can create, share and upload their most devious character creations to the Saints Row community site. On the scheduled release date of November 18 in the UK, players can download their favorite characters from the site into Saints Row: The Third and wreak crass destruction across the city of Steelport.
“The characters we’ve seen are mostly ridiculous, often hilarious, and always over-the-top. And now there are a million of them,” said Kevin Kraff, Vice President, Global Brand, THQ. “With the crazed creativity we’ve seen in only one week, we can’t wait to see what’s to come. One million is just the beginning.”
Some important facts: 1.2 million people have played the Initiation Station so far. The most popular nontraditional skin colors are green, red, and silver metallic. Finally, there are 24 created characters tagged by users as “God,” representing a variety of religious backgrounds.
