To celebrate THQ has released a bevy of information regarding Saints Row: The Third.  First and foremost, the Initiation Station is open to the public.  Create your most depraved character and share it with the whole world in advance of Saints Row: The Third's Nov 15 release date.  THQ would also like us to know that Saints Row: The Third will be much better on PC than Saints Row 2, mainly because it is being developed in-house.  The PC version will also feature an exclusive recording mode that will allow you to capture and share your best moments, or your worst.  For more details on minimum and recommended PC specs, follow the jump.  THQ has also released Saints Row: The Third's lengthy radio station and track list.  You can find it in it's entirety after the jump as well.



Celebrate All Saints Day in Style
THQ unveils embarrassment of Saints Row riches

Happy All Saints Day! This blessed day, also known as the Solemnity of All Saints, or All Hallows, or Hallowmas, according to Wikipedia, which may or may not be right, honors all saints, known, unknown, and of the Third Street variety. On this day, THQ and Saints Row®: The ThirdTM celebrate with the following important bullet points:

· The Initiation Station is live to the public!

Following a week of closed beta and the creation of more than 100,000 disturbing yet mostly sexually attractive characters, the floodgates are open to the masses. Download on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, create your own Saints, and do your worst. Add your favorites to your queue, and on the scheduled release date of November 15, download them directly into Saints Row: The Third as your very own playable, scantily clad, characters.



· Saints Row: The Third is also pretty awesome on the PC.

Saints Row 2 on the PC… could have been better. A lot better. With Saints Row: The Third, it is. This time around, Volition developed Saints Row: The Third in-house so that the PC game was the same quality as the console versions. The Volition PC team will, in fact, say it’s even better.



The PC mode features the Saints Video Record mode, allowing you to record and export your most over-the-top gameplay clips, which you are free to share on social media sites and SaintsRow.com. And if you’re a true cinephile, you can switch off the HUD and showcase your cheerleader assassin character in all her unblemished glory.



Post launch, the PC version will receive exclusive customization options, including oversized bobblehead masks of characters from your favorite non-THQ online shooter, Valve’s Team Fortress 2. They’re free, so strap them on. Stay tuned for more details.



Other highlights include AMD Eyefinity support, DX9, DX10, and DX11 support, Crossfire enabled, SLI enabled, advanced depth of field, reflections, and ambient occlusion quality, and, of course, God Rays.

As a special All Saints Day bonus, we’ve included a free MP3 of our very own music video preview by Broken Pixels and Jerome Chance. The team there created their own original Saints-inspired song using in-game music from Saints Row: The Third.
This project was a collaboration between Broken Pixels, Evil Rocket Ship and Nfamous Gamers. Broken Pixels consists of MC Jerome Chance and MC/Singer The Speaker Creature, video Editor Chris Oliver, and Producer Equivalent Exchange. Evil Rocket Ship lent the talents of Lucci Eslao on production and singer Milan Phillips. Chastity Irizarry from Nfamous Gamers was the Executive Producer.
