Sony Liverpool have promised free and paid for DLC for cross-platform Vita racing game, WipEout 2048.
The free content will be made up from bits that the development team weren’t able to get ready in time for the game’s launch last week. Lead designer Karl Jones said the following via Official PlayStation Magazine:
“I guess it’s going to be patches and stuff, DLC always comes across as paid for content. We’re obviously not going to just do paid for stuff, we’re going to do free stuff too. That’s largely going to be things we didn’t get time to do. For example, the AR museum. We’re looking into other things to enhance the toolset of the game. So we’re looking into custom controls, potentially some kind of multiplayer extension. We’ve got more stuff to support Cross Play, which I can’t announce anything about yet. So just lots of smaller different things that’ll be coming out in patches and obviously we’ve got bigger stuff coming out in DLC as well.”
“I can’t really talk about that now but the AR museum is a good example. We’ve shown it, it is coming, we just didn’t have to get it nailed before release. It’s just one of those things – you’ve got a list of so many thing you’ve got to do before a certain time and there’s a cut-off point. In terms of the stuff we didn’t get time to put in we didn’t plan that, you just assume there’s going to be some stuff we don’t get in and some people are going to have to hang back. The team’s definitely smaller now and moving on to something else. We haven’t completely stripped it back to nobody there’s still a fairly substantial team there looking after, not only this game, but potential future projects in the same area.”
