Hardcore Gamer: It seems that treasure hunter Nathan Drake is now looking to find his next score in the uncharted depth of your wallet.
If it's Single player DLC like "Left Behind" ...then yes it's worth it "Left Behind" to me is the best Story DLC i have played since RDR's "Undead Nightmare" DLC...and that was ND first Story DLC ever.
I still need to finish Left Behind. I kept getting killed by solidiers in the courtyard and rage quit lol.
If you got any free time give it another go...It's really great.
Bottom line ND has never put out unworthy DLC IMHO. MP or SP Their only mistake imo is they gave up Crash Bandicoot. But they were young and hungry. They mage great decisions so far as a dev company in my book. I don't feel the corporate bs I get from other companies.
I definitely will go back to it at some point! :)
I thought about NOT posting any comments in this topic. Because I thought people were too clever to take the bait... So people are moaning because ND announced a DLC... before the game even launched. The question is, do they really think that these studios plan DLC contents AFTER game released ? These contents are planned even during the development of the game. Most of the time SP DLCs are there to tell stories that wouldn't quite match we the main content and feel right. Or that would break the pace of the main story. They can also be about a particular and interesting character, whose background couldn't have been displayed adequately during the main story. Plus, they are announcing it this soon because of the SPECIAL EDITION of the game. Because they need to justify the price tage of that edition. Telling gamers that by buying the SPECIAL edition, they'll get the DLC for free. We don't even know WHEN the DLC will be released. It could be 6 months or a year later. Just like LEFT BEHIND for TLOU. I guess they'll rather pay for MP DLC Season Pass for 5 more maps and 7 guns...
Two possible answers: 1. It's stupid to even speculate this early considering we haven't gotten much info about it. 2. It's Naughty Dog so YES! It's absolutely going to be worth it! I'm going with #2.
What Yo Mama said.
3. when was the dlc created? was it during development? was it after the game had finished? could they have included the content with the purchase price? the game was already delayed so it is interesting to read about dlc before the game is even out. this is what we should ask about all dlc.
4. Stop the conspiracy theories
moldy, there's ZERO need for your FUD.
@XiKurapikaKurta "4. Stop the conspiracy theories" it's a conspiracy to think that maybe dlc was withheld from development to charge consumers extra? it's a conspiracy to think that this may indeed be day 1 dlc? @Spotie you should just stop policing the forums looking for anyone who may criticize the playstation brand. it's not healthy when you are doing it 24/7 and for free i might add. i simply asked a question. a simple question people have asked before for other games that have dlc attached to it that is announced before the game even ships. so stop thinking everyone is picking on sony, they will do fine without your help.
How about waiting till we see how much it cost and how long the gameplay is before we crucify ND? No one has any idea when it will come, length or anything. Yet here we go with the potentially unwarranted criticism. ND has done amazing on all their games and the only SP they've done so they've earned the right for us to give them the benefit of the doubt. So no need to stir the pot needlessly like your trying to do. You want to start a tirade there's, AC Syndicate, COD BO3 and Forza season passes which will cost a bunch and I am willing to bet offer far less bang for your buck if you want to complain.
this is not crucifying naughty dog, lol. they are one the premiere developers out there and deserve the praise they get. so stop acting like it's taboo to ask these questions about dlc announced for games before they ship. its been asked many times over for when it occurs to other games, why treat naughty dog different?
wut?? do we even know what it is??? and if we go from what we saw with Left Behind DLC then its more then worth it
Just a second, let me get my time machine.
That was the answer that complete summarizes and destroys the premise behind this article. The game isn't even scheduled to be released for another 7 months. Well said. -__-
Why are we asking this now? Why don't we wait until the game comes out THEN wait till the dlc releases and we can see how it is then discuss it's worth?
O gosh yea because its not like every other current gen game has some dlc in it but no lets single out one game,one piece of dlc and ask is it worth it...without knowing what it is or how its priced...
Comparing this to the witcher 3's free DLC is very stupid, you have to admit the DLc offered by CD project even tho its nice, it is very small things (beards, costumes) that wouldbnt cost the studio much. the uncharted DLc will cost a lot, a team will have to write, direct, voice act and do a lot of stuff for. Its so early and just nonsensical to ask this at this stage.
I am buying the witcher 3 DLC cause witcher 3 is awesome :)
How the heck can you ask the question before we know anything about it?
So what's the DLC going to be like? How long will it be? Seriously why are people questioning its worth even though we know almost nothing about it?
From the article: "With today’s economy and the growing expenses of living plus the stress of daily life, people who are avid gamers like to escape for a few hours into these rich worlds that they spent their rent or food money on." Well, drug addicts spend their rent and food money on drugs to escape. Should they be entitled to free drugs from their dealer because of the economy and stress of daily life? I'm not trying to compare gaming to drug addiction but this sentence seems to be doing just that. Stupid article. That said, I'm willing to pay for single player DLC if it's like Left Behind. Don't have an opinion on DLC for MP since I don't play it.
This is a got you question because no one has enough information to even speculate.
Everything related to uncharted is worth buying I would buy a shirt if i will find one
yup lets decide if its worth before the game has even shipped dont we :D /s
EA stop infecting other companies
When did naughty dog release an unfinished game and completed it with DLC?
doesn't matter if its finished or not , it is a story DLC and they have the guts to announce it before the whole game launches , I'll buy UC4 for sure , but its a slap to the face IMO
It most likely hasn't even started development as the Left Behind dlc didn't start production until after TLOU shipped and released almost a full year later in a standalone fashion. The story was absolutely supplementary and not required to have a great experience w/ the campaign proper. On the adverse, they could've held off on announcing the dlc & tried to sell a season pass w/o detailing what would be included, in which case it would've been a "slap to the face" to anyone considering buying the season pass w/o knowing exactly what would be included. WB tried that with Arkham Knight and that created quite a stir. So basically they're damned if they do, damned if they don't in the eyes of some people. Maybe try playing through UC4 and deciding whether or not it stands on it's own as a full experience before you take offense for some perceived slight. If you don't want to play the dlc there's always the crazy notion that you just don't buy it. If the game doesn't stand on its own without it, then take all of the offense you can muster, otherwise don't expect companies to drop hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours worth of development time on a piece of content only to turn around and hand it over free of charge. I know I'll be happy to pay retail for the game because ND has never given me a reason not to expect a quality experience, and I'm also glad to know that we will be extending the story at some point in the future.
ND pride themselves on great narratives that have great story arcs and a satisfying conclusion. Do people really think that ND would remove part of the story when they take pride in their reputation as the best in the business in that area? This is emerging as yet another excuse to knock a Sony product and it's getting far too obvious. The DLC will be something that either runs parallel to the main story or couldn't be told without spoiling the main story (as in Left Behind). Is it worth it? I don't know because the only legitimate question is 'will it be worth it?'. But that is strictly a hypothesis and is down entirely to speculation. Why go down that route when you can instantly add THIS DLC into the current trend of money grabbing by other companies. By reducing the argument to 'is it worth it?' the author is able bring this DLC under the same umbrella with little effort whatsoever. This is nothing more than ammunition, similar to what Crapgamer does all the time. It's sad to see.
Yes, I've seen it and it's totally worth any asking price! What do you mean I can't possibly have seen it and say that? If you think like that then why the heck did you even ask the question??? Shall we first wait until it's released before we answer that, hmm?
what a stupid article the witchers dlc is useless cosmetic trash & the few side quests we got was broken & still don't work like the skeligas most wanted still broken on console & you ignore that the witcher has a 25 expansion pass
I have a better question, Is this article worth it? :D No one can say whether or not it will be worth it for sure as no one has played it, I have no doubts it will be decent though.
Lol the stupidity of this question has caused every single person on this site to drop IQ points.
the game isnt even out and we are already talking about the DLC for it? youve gotta be kidding me. us gamers are the biggest suckers for this kind of trickery, it is a real sad state of affairs.
Naughty Dog announced DLC? When?
amazing how people defend day 1 paid dlc just because of developer... the same people that hated on Konami, yet bought the hell out of their highest budgeted game.
So will this DLC be available day 1? Last I checked, we know NOTHING about this DLC except that it will exist. Why are you jumping to conclusions? On that note, which of the people that hated on Konami do you know for a fact went out and bought MGS5? I get the feeling you don't have any idea who any such people are- unless you know them personally. And I'm CERTAIN that the people you DO know that did such a thing- assuming you actually do know any- far dwarf the people that never criticized Konami.
Amazing how people like you talk crap without knowing anything
Naughty dog is the last studio that i can think of coming some up like this. Like really? the game hasnt been released yet and already announcing a DLC?! I smell the E.A. Path is strong on this one.
Naughty Dog delivered a captivating story with the Left behind DLC "in my opinion" So, I personally have no reason to doubt if the DLC is worth it. Ellie's story in Left behind was captivating, emotional, & so much fun to experience/play. Those moments where Ellie & Riley are being goofy in the photo booth, & shooting each other with water guns was honestly a lot of fun. Made me think about when I was a kid. Ugh, those were the days. Naughty Dog, I believe will deliver a great story within the DLC.
Shouldnt you play uncharted 4 first to see if you wanna play more of it before you ask a baited question like that? Drama queens. Go watch a soap opera...
Naughty Dog could announce 100 DLC's and I'd still buy it. This company doesn't fail when making great games.
I think it'll be fine. I know it's a big odd when someone announced DLC so soon. But it's Uncharted 4, so I'm getting it no matter what and getting the DLC too.
I personally wouldn't buy it. TLOU DLc was stupid and ruined the whole experience for me. Plus I want a finished product not an unfinished product.
How the heck do you consider The Last of Us not a finished product? This was not Deus Ex HR where they ripped out a part of the main game and sold it as DLC, u play as a different character in Left Behind, it takes place at a totally different time and setting. Left Behind was brand new content, Naughty Dog is known for quality and surely the Uncharted 4 sp DLC will be just as good if not better. I can see you playing as a different character which would be awesome, it would also show ppl a glimpse of Uncharted's future protagonist, perhaps?
How cool would it be to be Sully in the DLC?
@ Tru Blu Sully would be awesome to play as in the sp DLC, i want to be Sully and i want a cigar throwing mechanic to distract enemies just like in Vanquish. Most likely we will play as Sam and experience his escapades leading up to Uncharted 4. Imagine playing as a younger Sully like the age he was when he met young Drake in Uncharted 3? So excited for the game and the DLC.
I'll happily buy whatever naughty dog is selling! Until they disappoint me which I can't see happening!
This "journalist" is a jk, they raved about how amazing Left Behind was yet they moan about the same thing being done for Uncharted 4? Why can't the DLC be free? Idk, why can't Arkham Knight's $40 of DLC be free? This is called life, ppl loved the Left Behind DLC from The Last of Us and i expect something similarl from Uncharted 4. I'm so excited to see the story being extended considering this is likely Drake's last game. Also, this DLC could very well be a prologue to the next Uncharted game, i'm all in.
They're modeling after TLOU and it's DLC. No arguments here, I'm sold! Left Behind was a prime example of proper DLC for a SP game. It didn't attempt to overshadow the main story, it didn't take away from... LB simply fleshed out the lore.
Goddamn this stupid clickbait garbage. Why wouldn't it be worth it? Why is $200+ worth of day one DLC worth it for Evolve, or any other multiplayer only crap game? You've never even seen Uncharted 4. Or know how much the DLC costs or ANYTHING. So shut up, and stop trying to stir up shit.
Maybe but we'll just have to wait and see.
This is something gamers and fans don't realize. From the start they were against paid DLC when it should be included with the main purchase of the game. Destiny is a prime example of this process. Its funny how the community all of a sudden changes there mind set because a well known developer supports it. Paid DLC before a game has even launched goes to show this is clearly a cash grab. No matter which developer tries this method, its them saying I want to charge more for my game because they know there are gamers out there who are suckers for it, like myself. Paid DLC should be ok once a game has already released and they want to add more content to it, not dicing up the game into little pieces and trying to sell each slice of the pie separately when it should all be included from the start. UC4 isn't out yet and this content should be included with your first purchase. TLOU - Left Behind was a different story because it was released after the main game and it was something they wanted to add to continue the life span of the franchise. UC4 isn't like this. ND are trying to charge its customers more and give you less which is unacceptable. This goes towards all companies not just ND.
Don't know anything about it yet or have even played it. How would I know if its worth it?
