The lights are on
If you are tired of DLC that feels like a tacked on experience or a level that was cut from the original game, then you are not alone. Enslaved developer Ninja Theory feels the same way, which is why it's hoping players will get their money’s worth when they download Enslaved’s DLC.
In a recent interview with Destructoid, Ninja Theory’s chief creative ninja, Tameem Antoniades, said, “just before we finished Enslaved, we put a small team on the DLC. From the beginning, the main game was meant to be a start, middle, and end – a complete story – and the DLC was meant to be an extra. So like from an internal point of view, the DLC is a new project.”
Ninja Theory isn’t ready to announce the actual content yet, but Antoniades went on to say, “I’ve played through it start to finish just the other day, and it’s pretty meaty, it’s not an extra few levels kind of thing. It’s an entirely new experience.”
Sounds exciting, but in the meantime we suppose we should just worry about making our way through the rest of Enslalved, which comes out on October 5.

I love me some DLC. Glad they are making it a full experience. Hope it is not to expensive.
First off: Chief Creative Ninja-Best business card title ever. Second: This game is the first time I've heard of Ninja Theory and every new story makes me like these developers even more. They really seem to know their stuff and I like their standpoint on DLC
well, why then was it not included in the original game? sounds like a money grubbing scheme to me...
But the game isn't even out yet!
can't wait for this game i wonder if this means this will be available day 1
I still don't understand why they start making DLC while they are still making the game.......
Yeah, because if DLC comes out day 1, it means it was taken out of the full game, and we're being charged extra for it.
I can think of no other reason.
bioware should take advice from ninja theory about dlc
Seriously, if so, then include it on the fkn disc (oh that's right, it probably already is, and you're just unlocking it by paying extra). I can't believe how long they've been working on DLC while simultaneously working on the actual fkn game this is a ridiculous trend that's just getting worse.
Sweet. Awesome to know. I love action adventure games, and I'm tired of DLC that's just skins for multiplayer or new stupid deathmatch levels or something. I'm looking at you, Uncharted 2! SOMEONE needs to put out meaty, single player DLC to support their action-adventure...well, besides Remedy with their Alan Wake stuff.
Sounds very good to me. I hope the main game is as fantastic as it looks.
I just don't like that DLC is already planned before the game comes out. Just throw that into the game there is no reason why not, except money.
Glad to hear they're actually making the DLC for this game worth our money.
Hope it sells well enough for them to keep going with these dreams; it's coming out in a pretty tight release window.
Planning DLC already? That's a ballsy move, Ninja Theory. This might cause players to feel cheated out on their Enslaved experience by having content that should probably, and possibly could have been, on the disc.
