Heavy Rain DLC Proving Its Worth
Two quick things you need to know about Heavy Rain: as the developers have stated, it's a complete game that is not lacking any content but at the same time, the DLC will be most interesting in terms of storyline additions.
According to GamersMint citing a French source, an interview with Quantic Dream head man David Cage has revealed some details concerning Heavy Rain's future downloadable content. This content, dubbed the "Heavy Rain Chronicles," will allow the player to see the plot from different angles and toss in some "behind-the-scenes" info as well. For instance, we'll learn how the character of Norman Jayden became addicted to the prescription drug Triptocaine, and we'll also follow journalist Madison Page in her investigation of a taxidermist, which also explains how she became an insomniac. But perhaps most interesting of all is the fact that you'll actually be able to step into the shoes of the villain, the Origami Killer. Basically, if you download the "Chronicles," you'll be able to see the events and circumstances that led the serial killer to a life of brutal crime. We can probably expect more for the other two main characters (Ethan Mars and Scott Shelby) but we don't have any details just yet.
However, Cage did say that each little back story adds about an hour of gameplay and each will be like a mini-prequel. Therefore, you're looking at somewhere around 4-5 hours of extra play time with this DLC and that's probably well worth it. We don't have a date for "Chronicles" just yet but Cage said it should be available to download "soon after" Heavy Rain releases at the end of February.
