In an interview with Edge, Dark Souls 2 Producer Takeshi Miyazoe has said that From Software have no plans to develop DLC for the upcoming sequel to the infamously difficult RPG.
“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.
“We did do additional content for Dark Souls, but generally downloadable content for Dark Souls 2 is not really being considered. Buy the package and you’ll get the full experience, and you’ll have as much fun as anybody else.”
Miyazoe also acknowledged that the PC port of the original Dark Souls was not a job done well: “This is going to sound bad but our main priority was to get the game onto the PC as fast as possible, because people wanted it on the PC.”
“The PC market in Japan is so minimal that originally there were no plans to make it on the PC, but with the strong petition from the North American and European fans, even with the lack of experience of working on a PC platform we still did our best to try to get it out as fast as possible. (The problems) were expected to a certain extent.”
Hopefully this means Dark Souls 2 will not need to be fixed by fan modders, like the original was.
Dark Souls 2 is due to release in March, 2014 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
