In this era of map packs, purchasable character skins, and downloadable storyline segments, one of my favorite parts of Dark Souls was that it felt like a complete product.

The game did end up getting a DLC release–the Artorias of the Abyss expansion—but that was more along the lines of what I want: bonus content created after a game is finished because fans wanted more, not because it was planned from the start.

It was previously said that fans shouldn’t be looking forward to any lofty plans for DLC when Dark Souls II hits, but the game’s producer, Takeshi Miyazoe, says that might not be the case.

“There is definitely potential, I think,” Miyazoe told Official Xbox Magazine recently. “Again, it’s all about fan feedback. Right now we are concentrating on completing what we’ve got, but I think there are next steps on how we can expand on Dark Souls 2. So I’m not really ready to say look forward to more information, but I think the potential is definitely there.”

If FROM Software (and Namco Bandai) do stick with that idea—listening to fans as to if DLC should or shouldn’t come for Dark Souls II—then I’ll have no complaints. So long as I can still get the “complete” game on the disc I purchase, and then later add to that game should I want to, I’ll be happy.
