Blur Developers Have Their DLC Priorities Straight
Bizarre Creations got a couple extra months to work on finishing Blur so when it arrives on May 25, we should get a finely polished, immensely energetic racer.
However, don't think they're taking more time in order to create downloadable content users will then have to pay for at a later time. They're going about this process logically and in our eyes, productively: they don't want to even think about DLC until the game is totally complete but when it is complete, they'll throw their full weight behind downloadable extras and support the game for quite some time. Blur lead designer Ged Talbot spoke to MTV News about the team's approach and said that while they have no official dates for DLC, it's still a "massive part of the strategy" to support the game with DLC in the future. Now, the major complaint from gamers these days is that devs are focusing too much on additional content rather than the game itself, but Bizarre Creations clearly won't make that mistake. With over 30 race locations and 50 cars included in the game, it'll take some time to get your fill before you begin to crave any DLC. The bottom line is that although extra stuff is always cool, we still want our $60 worth, right?
Blur is one of those arcade-type racers with a nice little twist that could prove to be highly entertaining. For those who have enjoyed the likes of Burnout in the past, it could be just the game for you.
