Crytek has “big plans” for Crysis 3 DLC, but isn’t dropping hints

Monday, 18th February 2013 16:24 GMT By Dave Cook

Crysis 3 developer has confirmed it has big plans for its DLC slate, but isn’t giving up any solid details. To be fair, it makes a change from being hounded by day-one DLC news before a game’s even out.

It’s a short one this, but speaking with CVG, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli was asked if gamers could expect any DLC beyond the typical map pack fodder.

He replied, “We’re still exploring that. We have some plans in mind that we can’t disclose yet, but we are going to wait a little bit to see how the beta’s running and how the game does for the first few days. We do have a big plan to support it.”

See? That’s quite vague isn’t?

Meanwhile, Yerli has happily discussed why next-gen console specs won’t be able to match modern gaming PCs, why Crytek will move from paid to free-to-play over the next five years, and why next-gen launch games won’t look much different to Crysis 3.

    What do you mean “already”? The game releases in 4 days.

    I’m not sure you’ve noticed this, but almost every other AAA game developer has been doing this for the past 3 years, did you avoid any of their games too?

    ^^ This is a VERY bad trend among games…they withhold content to nickel and dime the customer.

    #3 – Where do you draw the line of what is nickel-and-diming the customer though? The game has been complete for quite some time as it is releasing in only a few days, so it is only natural for a company to be thinking about the future of supporting their game with new content. Sure, they could’ve strung out the release date back a couple months to include this content, but you could argue that to any company that releases DLC. It just depends on how they communicate this content to the consumer.
