Ninja Theory boss Tameem Antoniades has told VG247 the studio is working on “story-based” downloadable content for new title Enslaved.

In an exclusive interview with us at a pre-E3 European press event from Namco in Barcelona two weeks ago, Antoniades confirmed any DLC would be of the story kind, not the addition of multiplayer.

“Namco don’t want to announce that, but we’re working on it now. It’s not going to be anything like multiplayer,” said Antoniades.

When asked if it would story-based DLC, he said: “Yeah, it would be story-based.”

Antoniades also confirmed to us that a demo for the game, based on a futuristic version of the classic Chinese Monkey legend, Journey to the West, is in the planing at NT.

“That’s on the cards. That’s the plan, yeah,” he said when asked if a demo would be coming before release. The dev previously released a demo of PS3 exclusive Heavenly Sword a good month or so before its release back in September 2007.
