Dark Souls 2 DLC is being considered

dark souls 2

Make no mistake, Dark Souls 2 is going to be a massive game. We already have plans to book Geoff into therapy, because he needs to review that sequel and put his life on the line to do so. And as soon as we get him out of the crap institute that only the finest of pocket lint can buy, weโ€™re going to make him play the DLC as well.

"Again, it’s all about fan feedback," producer Takeshi Miyazoe said to OXM.

Right now we are concentrating on completing what we’ve got, but I think there are next steps on how we can expand on Dark Souls 2. So I’m not really ready to say look forward to more information, but I think the potential is definitely there.

Whatโ€™s strange however, is that back in December, Miyazoe mentioned that the studio had no interest in doing any DLC for the sequel. "For Dark Souls 2, we don’t even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one," Miyazoe said back in the dark days of 2013.

Dark Souls originale also originally had no plans for DLC, with the game then joining that bandwagon with the Artorias of the Abyss expansion.

Still, I donโ€™t forsee anyone having any problem whatsoever with more Dark Souls 2 on the horizon. The game is out soon on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 14 locally, with the PC version following shortly afterwards.

As for the DLC, expect The Epic Saga of Ag Jirre F$! Man to be up for download as soon as Namco Bandai allows me to name all of their products.

      Agreed. Those nightmare horses will make my nightmares have nightmares! And then those nightmares will wake up in a cold sweat, screaming “Nightmare horses!!”

      On a side note – isn’t the horse on the left the horse that lost the J&B Met on Saturday? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just asking…

        The question I think we need to also ask is are there 2 horses in that pic, or one horse with 2 heads? NIGHTMARES!

            What kind of deranged mind even contemplates such things? Clearly it’s some kind of horse-chariot hybrid because they don’t have back legs.

    Well this could be interpreted in 2 ways really. I mean he said there was no plan for DLC and from what I understand we will get the full game. No DLC weapons or anything really. Atorias of the Abyss was more like an expansion than DLC these days. So to me, we will still get the full game and full experience and maybe later get another expansion type of DLC. Which is A ok by me. AOTA was so good and meaty. and they are focusing on the main game right now. Unlike most games when there is more info on the DLC than the actual game

      I always like it when they talk about all the DLC they’re developing before they’ve even released the game. What excellent value.

        Lolz indeed. “Here’s the game that’s coming out in next year Q2, but don’t forget in Q3 you can get the new DLC maps that we could’ve added to the game but we wanted to sell it as extra content so we can milk gamers..”…..

            Lol. I had issues with sleeping last year. Was given some sleeping pills by doctor. One of the side effects was they made you trip out, so I woke up and there was this 6ft nutcracker standing in the corner of my room staring at me. Fucking scary bro!

            Yeah. Was messed up! I actually ended up taking pictures to ‘prove’ to people what I saw. Needless to say the next day I was terribly dissapointed. Whole bunch of pictures of a plug socket and no nutcrackers in sight!

    I never played the DLC of Dark Souls. Primarily because I got more than my moneys worth with the main game and secondly I’m not that much of a masochist.

        February 3, 2014 at 13:46

        Well yes and no. Yes because it’s extra bosses and more awesome challenging levels etc. No because I have to spend more money, I already traded the game and I am almost certain that I don’t have my save file anymore.

        Maybe if DLC came out with the game instead of 4 – 6 months later I may be bothered but there are so many games coming out that it’s hard for me to stop with the games I’m playing and to go back to a older one just because a company decided to release extra content.

          True. I was lucky that I got late into the game then went and got the PC version which was way better and had the DLC. But I get what you saying.

          You know what was great about this DLC. There is no option to just play it. It’s hidden within the game and it fits into the story, there certain things you have to do and take note of the story to actually find new area . That is how DLC should be.

            Lol yeah , the mouse integration was truly horrible…you know a game is a bad port when you see the mouse cursor in game when it’s only used for the camera.
