Beütal Legend is finally making its way to PC, and if it sells well, Double Fine may release content not available for the console versions.
Speaking to Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Double Fine’s Tim Schafer said he’s “love” to do additional content for the PC version.
“We have a wishlist from when we made this version. But since we are a small developer publishing it ourselves, we have to go with the best version we can make and then hope it’s successful so we can add more,” he said.
Brütal Legen’s console release wasn’t successful enough to make that dream come true, but now that it has a new lease on life, Schafer and the team have a number of ideas.
“There’s a whole list of smaller ones to things like entire playable factions we didn’t get into the first game,” he said.
“I would love to do alternate gameplay modes in multiplayer. I’d like to bring in Lionwhyte as a playable faction. There are some tweaks I’d like to do to give you more feedback about what your units are doing.”
It’s all dependent on how much money the game makes, of course. But even if it brings in enough to fun the kinds of features outlined above, Schafer said it’s unlikely there’ll be new single-player content.
“Single-player requires content, which means reengaging all the voice actors – which is something that was a lot easier for EA to pay for. Also, reengaging music licensing. I’d love to do that too, but I think that would involve more funding than we have cash on hand to do,” Schafer said.
Brütal Legend arrives on PC on February 27, three years and four months after its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.
