Visceral hints at 'disturbing' Dead Space 3 story DLC

Destructoid - In addition to revealing Dead Space 3's four gameplay modes, executive producer Steve Papoutsis has dropped the first clue that Visceral's horror-shooter is getting an extra story campaign as downloadable content. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Visceral games, Xbox 360)

Lol wow, game isn't out and they're already ready to spank on the DLC. Can't say I'm that surprised.

Sadly it is the way of the industry now. Day one DLC/disc locked DLC. I don't mind them saying we will do dlc but this comes across as if the DLC will be around launch.

Visceral announcing the DLC - "Look at all those explosions and gun fights, disturbing right? We were spooked out making this DLC guys"

The industry has changed but so have gamers.

Retail sales for games are down. It isn't one issue that is causing this but some gamers are adjusting their purchasing habits because they are not happy with the game industry.

Dead Space 3 is the first game in the series I won't be buying.

So is it disturbing that the story DLC will be released day1... or is the story DLC disturbing?

From what I've seen of the game, it doesn't look very disturbing (not like the previous two games anyways)... so I guess it's the first option.

DLC should be the extend the life of a game. They way many do it now, it's like getting an electronic toy without batteries.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised that a season pass has not been announced for this game. If Dead Space 3 is going to have DLC, I am much more hopeful that it will be enjoyable if there is no season pass. I've come to understand season pass as "four mediocre packs of content thrown together without much care to meet a deadline."
Of course, that definition can also be applied to many full games released these days, but still...

Most of us learned that the hard way. Uncharted 3 season pass was alright but also disappointing. :(

Another reason not to buy this game. They're too far gone now. Just gonna gamefly it.
ironfist92  +   980d ago
Just gonna rent it, play the SP, then move on with my life.

Dead Space 1 will always be the best out of the franchise.

Visceral hints at 'disturbing' DLC for Dead Space 3 story

That's better.
Ezz2013  +   981d ago
lol tht was funny

and even then ..why don't they just put that in the SP already .maybe that would give the game a higher chance to get good scores
zerocrossing  +   981d ago
I know, right? I like the idea of getting extra content but I feel like they just hold this stuff back deliberately just to sell it to us as DLC later.

they are working for EA though

they are as bad as capcom when it come to bleed you dry

Wait wait, you mean a studio is finished with the main game and shouldn't get started on post-maingame content?

You know, back in the good ol days we used to get extra content as special unlocks from completing the game or meeting other specific conditions, we didn't have to pay through the nose for a big shiny gun or alt armour skin either.

Instead we have DLC now, which in theory is a great idea but is constantly being abused, how much content do you think EA will be leaving out of Dead Space 3 to sell to us later?
pandehz  +   980d ago
No it means Dead Space 3 story and game is not solid enough to stand on its own and they have plotholes that need to be filled with as many dlc's as the zombie like public will buy, OR SO THEY THINK

One day in the future we will have books being published by EA and we will be able to download chapters 3 and 4 separately or if you subscribe then you get it all. Ah cant wait to be a part of that awesome future. Im soooo gonna make my own game company and do this too :) :)

You don't start on post-maingame content if you don't check how the game sels first.
Snookies12  +   980d ago
I'm "disturbed" by the lack of horror I've seen in this game... Please don't go that RE6 route... Although I know it's not looking good after that comment regarding their focus to bring in people who play phone games that have never touched the series...

Ah so I wasn't planning to buy the game. Do they now want me to troll their forums?
Son_Lee  +   980d ago
Only thing disturbing is the fact it's story DLC.
Conzul  +   980d ago
I know. The story of Dead Space is getting sadder, not scarier.
jon1234  +   980d ago
this game isnt out, and its already disgusting to me... appealing to action gamers and mobile gamers.... fuck ea for doing that, im not getting this piece of crap game....

Day one for me! I might get that DLC too!
@Disagrees: But if story DLC was announced now for something like The Last of Us or Bioshock Infinite you would all be drooling like idiots :/

Speak for yourself.

Amen brother......preach it. Day one for me i loved the demo. It seemed like old Dead space to me and it even scared the crap out of a friend when the necros jumped out of that snow.
soniqstylz  +   980d ago
Total Day 201 purchase.
HorrorGod  +   980d ago
I loved "Severed" for Dead Space 2. Kinda wish they had released more DLC episodes like that.
phantomexe  +   980d ago
I enjoyed it as well. I hope we see more story based dlc not just for dead space.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   980d ago
I really enjoyed "Severed" DLC from Dead Space 2. It was only 6 or 7 bucks and was awesome from start to finish. It was short but I played it four times, hope they do something similar with this DLC.
hiptanaka  +   980d ago
What's "disturbing" is that this DLC is probably gonna be day 1.
bluetoto  +   980d ago
Really hope this game bombs, only to shake EA up a bit. Sad part is they would just close the studio and move on to another victim, unfazed.
