Dark Souls 2 dev team does not “expect” DLC

Dark Souls 2′s producer currently has no plans to develop DLC for the notoriously difficult RPG sequel.

Speaking with Edge, Takeshi Miyazoe said From Software isn’t planning on DLC at this stage.

“For Dark Souls 2, we don’t even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one,” he said.

“We did do additional content for Dark Souls, but generally downloadable content for Dark Souls 2 is not really being considered. Buy the package and you’ll get the full experience, and you’ll have as much fun as anybody else.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Edge had asked whether Namco Bandai had made any noises about taking the product free-to-play, like Ace Combat, Tekken and Soul Calibur. The idea’s not as bizarre as it may sound at first, as Capcom’s Deep Down seems to be implementing a similar style game in a free-to-play model; nevertheless, Miyazoe wasn’t having any of it, saying the IP is too young to survive such a transition.

“Spending a couple dollars on certain items does not help the experience. So no free-to-play yet,” he said.

Dark Souls 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2014.

Thanks, Joystiq.
