Dark Souls 2 DLC not ruled out, says producer

New installment may get DLC depending on fan feedback

Dark Souls 2 may get post-launch DLC, despite reports in December that the game's producer had ruled it out.

While producer Takeshi Miyazoe said last year that From Software is unlikely to develop DLC for the game, new comments suggest the studio is more open to the idea.


Speaking to OXM, Miyazoe said there is "definitely potential" for Dark Souls 2 DLC.

"Again, it's all about fan feedback," he said. "Right now we are concentrating on completing what we've got, but I think there are next steps on how we can expand on Dark Souls 2.

"So I'm not really ready to say look forward to more information, but I think the potential is definitely there."

Miyazoe's new comments contradict claims in December that the studio has no interest in releasing DLC.

"For Dark Souls 2, we don't even expect any additional downloadable content because we want to deliver a full game, the full experience, to fans who purchase the package from day one," he told Edge.

Ahead of its 2011 release From Software spokespeople ruled out DLC for the original Dark Souls, which was later expanded with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC.

Dark Souls 2 will release for PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 11 in North America and March 14 in Australia and Europe. A PC edition of the game will follow "shortly" after.

A recent CVG Dark Souls 2 preview went hands-on with the first two hours of the game.
