"Deep Silver has quickly taken notice of gamers accessing the "on-disc" DLC for Risen 2: Dark Waters. In response, the company has had Piranha Bytes to remove access to the disc-locked content with the latest patch released for the game."
So now they're blocking gamers from accessing stuff they added to the game, because they want people to pay for stuff already in their possession, after having already paid for the game. This is fine for F2P games, you get what you don't pay for...but for retail games? Ugh. Gotta love the direction the gaming industry is headed in.
Can't PS3/360 owners just not download the latest patch/delete contents for the game and still get access to the DLC?
The game isn't out for consoles yet. They blocked it cause people were getting into the DLC that's on disc without having to pay for it. I think the same thing happened with Deaf Space 2 except EA didn't block the DLC when they found out people were unlocking it for free.
This whole "locked content" model is absolutely embarrassing to the industry. Any publisher or dev that follows this model should be ashamed of themselves. Good job rewarding your fanbase Piranha Bytes/Deep Silver.
It won't matter, I guarantee another way of accessing it will be found within a day
That's how developers protect their extortion, too bad it will be futile...
Its all about greed now days with many publishers/studios..
Interesting thought: if you hack into content already on the disc of a game you bought legally, is it piracy? I bought the disk and the game, by rights it feels like all the content on the disk should be mine.
Lol a game about pirates. Get it? No? Dam....
Now gaming companies are pirating gamers and its legal...
It just goes to show you that piracy ain't a two way street.
Wow so Deep Silver release's a game that they know was really glitchy(Dead Island) and now their doing on disk DLC?
fuck this shit.. Give me maxpayne3 and diablo 3.. Pathetic diplay of marketing.
