Scott Pilgrim online multiplayer DLC delayed yet again
Scott Pilgrim vs The World’s long awaited DLC, which adds support for online multiplayer as well as Scott’s roommate Wallace as a playable character, has been delayed again.
The new content was announced by series creator Bryan Lee O’Malley and even listed in last week’s Xbox Live Marketplace update, but failed to materialise.
“The downloadable content for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has been delayed for fine-tuning and to incorporate feedback from the passionate Scott Pilgrim community,” Ubisoft told Destructoid.
“Ubisoft is addressing feedback from the community on the best ways to honor retro games in the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game DLC in an accurate and respectful manner. Ubisoft, and the new team developing the DLC, respect creative properties and, of course, want to be sure to deliver a game experience that is a proper tribute to the Scott Pilgrim franchise.”
I literally have no idea what this ominous sounding talk of feedback could mean.
Scott Pilgrim vs The World released in 2010 but it wasn’t until August 2012 that Ubisoft announced it would add a much-requested extra character and enable online multiplayer. The DLC missed its launch later that month, and then at least one more proposed release window. It wasn’t until achievements turned up last month that we started to believe again.
How wrong we were.
