Enslaved DLC Will Be "Story-Based," Demo Is Likely
We're liking the look of Ninja Theory's Enslaved and we also like the idea of "story-based" downloadable content.
DLC has become the norm this generation, but many gamers are often more interested in extra content that will build upon the core storyline. Cosmetic enhancements like new costumes and new maps are nice and everything, but expansions that actually affect the main plot/theme are especially appreciated, right? And according to Ninja Theory head man Tameem Antoniades, the team is working on DLC of this sort; it'll be designed to expand on the single-player experience rather than the typical multiplayer bonuses. We should also expect a demo as Antoniades said one is definitely "in the cards." This isn't exactly surprising, though, as Ninja Theory released one of the very first highly anticipated demos on the PSN back in 2007; it was for Heavenly Sword and while less than 10 minutes in length, it still impressed us. And since then, demos have become an expected lead-in to most big titles. Sure, you could say we've gotten a little spoiled but hey, it's great advertising...provided the game is actually good.
Enslaved is definitely on our radar for the end of the year, especially because we really enjoyed Heavenly Sword. And has anyone noticed the clear artistic similarities...?
