Share your bat-**** insane Saints Row: The Third character creations with everyone

More On: Saints Row The Third
It's called the Initiation Station, and with it, Saints Row: The Third players will be able to share whatever their imagination spits out with the rest of the Saints Row: The Third player-base over the Internet.  You simply upload your creation and those that like it can download and use it.

Not only that, but with the Initiation Station, you'll be able to fully customize any character downloaded.  Is that morbidly obese bikini-clad Lindsey Lohan/Miley Cyrus hybrid not quite right in your mind?  Simply change it as you see fit.  Pretty awesome if you ask me.

You'll also be able to collaborate with friends and use your collective creations during your co-op sessions together.

The Initiation Station will be free for all platforms in advance of Saints Row: The Third's release this Holiday season.  And for players of Volition's other upcoming game, Red Faction: Armageddon, special early-access will be granted via a code prior to release of Saints Row: The Third.

Check the game out on the web right now.
