Just Cause 2 will get loads of DLC according to Avalanche Studios. Giving users plenty of things to do once they finish the campaign. Lead designer Peter Johansson told Eurogamer that a lot of of DLC is planned for the game.
“Yeah, we’re going to have some fun with DLC,” beamed lead designer Peter Johansson, “but unfortunately I can’t talk about the specifics.
“We’re going to have a lot of DLC. We’ll see what happens,” he added with a grin. “DLC is important, but a game like Just Cause 2 can live pretty long because it’s not just playing through the story and being done with it – there’s the completion rating and playing with friends. That’s what we do in the office!”
Also, Avalanche and Square Enix considers launching a website that updates user activity, something similar to Rockstar’s Social Club.
“I’m not sure what the plans are from Square’s side, but we are definitely going to do that for the game; we’ll have these metrics, lots of metrics, and everything in as simple a form as we can do,” said Johansson.”In this game it’s really fun to track completion rating as well, because this game is going to take people a long time to do!”
Just Cause 2 is due for release on 26th March on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The PS3 version of Just Cause 2 allows you to record and upload videos to YouTube. When asked why this feature is not on Xbox 360.
“It was decided it was going to be an exclusive feature,” said Johansson. “You know how it can be in the business.”
