God of War III may get DLC
And so you probably won’t be surprised to hear that God of War III is likely to get the same treatment.
Producer Stig Asmussen has been discussing the possibility with GamePro, and he shared his thoughts on what we may see:
So, maybe you’ll see the game ship with a certain amount of challenges on it, then later on, we might put a download pack out with new challenges. It’s a good way to keep the series going.
They would be a good way to make some extra money too. But he then goes into detail on one possible scenario:
For example, now that you have creatures you can ride, maybe we’ll put in a challenge where in a certain amount of time you have to get on a Cyclops and kill a certain number of enemies in a certain amount of time. Or, maybe you have to use the Cyclops to get through a certain type of hazard or area or something like that.
Asmussen also detailed why multiplayer is missing from the game. After all, Uncharted 2 has it and it has been extremely well received:
With God of War 3, there’s a story we want to tell and an experience we want to deliver, and multiplayer doesn’t fit into that.
On a final note, expect it to take you between ten and twenty hours to finish the game – value for money guaranteed!
