Namco Bandai says something crazy-Dark Souls will be a great, fully complete game without DLC

Posted on September 1, 2011 AT 05:07am

There used to be a time that you’d go to the store, pay your $50 or $60, and the game you purchased was a full, complete game.

Now, with so many games, it seems the day they’re released there’s already a long list of DLC content begging you to pay more money to get a “complete” game.

That won’t be the case with Dark Souls, the upcoming spiritual sequel to the hit PS3 game Demon’s Souls. Chief publishing producer for Namco Bandai, Daisuke Uchiyama, had this to say to Game Revolution:

“As announced at Gamescom, we are not planning any DLCs for Dark Souls. The game is deeply balanced with its exquisite enemy placements and map designs. We intend on focusing a lot of our resources towards fine tuning and balancing the game, and feel that additional content such as DLCs may hinder the game balance we have achieved for all players who pick up this game.

“It will be such a great pleasure if there are many voices from fans asking for DLC, but I am very confident that the game is fully complete and everyone will be satisfied with the game without any additional contents.”

As well, that limited collector’s edition of Dark Souls that comes with a collectible tin and artbook? The price is $59.99 – the exact same price as you’d pay regularly for the game.
