DLCentral Find Out: GTA 5 DLC Confirmed

There’s been a glut of new GTAV information and screens that has burst out of Rockstar Games HQ today including nailed on confirmation that DLC is definitely happening.

Firstly, the eagle-eyes over at Gameranx notice that Rockstar’s Support Page lists lifts the lid on future plans with regards to region-locking the game, but also casually drops hard evidence of DLC. Okay, we knew it was always going to happen, but the confirmation reads as follows…

“However, if you live in Europe (where the GTAV disc code is BLES01807) you will likely have a European PSN account that will not be able to redeem a US pre-order code, and will only be able to download Region 2 (European) DLC, incompatible with non-European discs.”

So that’s that then.

Secondly, and best of all, the official GTAV site has been updated with bloody loads of new details and screenshots for the game.

There are 360° virtual tours of a few cars in …

Payday 2 DLC finds out: Five packs planned, updates will include free content

Developer Overkill Software has pledged its on-going support for the recently released mask-wearing money-grabber, Payday 2. The studio’s Game Director, David Goldfarb, told Joystiq there are “Five DLCs planned together with [publisher] 505 Games for the coming year,” and that updates would be a mix of paid and free content.

One possible update for Payday 2 could be the addition of a non-male crew member, with Goldfarb telling OXM in an interview that “one of the first things I have on my list, is to make sure we get a female character. I’m hoping – I don’t know if we’ll get it as our first DLC, because we’d have to redo all the animations so it doesn’t look like a dude walking around with a female body… But I’d like to do that.”

The previous game, Payday: The Heist, received a couple of DLC packs, and offered new …

DLCentral News: Capsized

Capsized is a 2D Platform Shooter and itʼs out now on XBLA. PC title now available on Xbox Live with extra levels, also coming soon to PSN.

Star trekkin’

Capsized is a 2D platform shooter that started life on PC, but is now available to download as an XBLA title from Xbox Live, priced 800MSP (£6.85/€9.60/$10.00). A free demo is also available if you want to give it a try before you, know, buy. More details after you take a minute to watch this new trailer:

As you can see, the action is lovingly old school, with the little crash-landed spaceman dude kitted out with a jetpack, grapple hook, weapons, and power-ups. His mission is search and rescue – he has to find his missing crewmates, all while avoiding/blasting the aliens which probably want to liquidise his brains or something nasty like that.

Here’s a handy bullet-point list of features:

  • Particle Packed Weapons: Sure, the grappling hook is pretty

Injustice: Gods Among Us – Exclusive Q&A with NetherRealm Studios

Developer talks DLC, Scorpion complaints, and how extra content is driven by the fans

Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC is always surrounded by lively speculation, fevered anticipation, and consistently divides opinion amongst its players and fan-base. To find out a little more about the work that goes into creating the extra content, how much planning is behind its DLC schedule, and if managing fan disappointment is a headache, we fired some questions to Adam Urbano, senior producer at Injustice developer NetherRealm Studios. And he replied with answers…

DLCentral: Is a second Injustice DLC Season Pass a possibility?

Adam Urbano: Probably not. Additional DLC content after the four included in the Season Pass is driven entirely by our fans – for instance, we decided to add Martian Manhunter only after there was such a huge number of requests to see him added. Similarly, the DLC S.T.A.R. Labs missions were never envisioned when we created the season pass, so we had to …

Injustice dev would like to keep making DLC, but has ʻnew projectsʼ

Injustice: Gods Among Us developer NetherRealm Studios has told us it would like to support its DC Comics fighter indefinitely with extra content, but has ‘exciting new projects’ to take into consideration when juggling development resources.

You can read the full quote below, which is taken from a Q&A with NetherRealm senior producer, Adam Urbano.

DLCentral: With the entire DC Comics Universe to choose from, you could conceivably keep producing new Injustice DLC for a long time – but at what point do you stop? As a studio, is there a self-imposed cut-off to focus on other projects, or do you keep making DLC for as long as gamers are buying it?

Adam Urbano: The honest answer to this question is that we’re still figuring it out ourselves. We obviously have a great deal of passion for Injustice: Gods Among Us, and we’d like to keep making content for it forever, but we’re also working on a bunch …

Injustice DLC: Dev drops clues for next character, causes mass confusion

We were pretty confident the next Injustice: Gods Among Us character to be released as DLC after Martian Manhunter would be either Red Hood or Zatanna. It makes perfect sense for it to be one of those two, and we wrote this article saying so. But now Ed Boon, the game’s creative director and serial Twitter troll, has been dropping some ‘clues’ as to the next fighter’s identity and things have… stopped making so much sense.

The first clue was posted yesterday:


And the second clue was posted earlier today:


Both tweets link through to a video of the NBC public service announcement ‘The More You Know’ logo.

We’re not very good at working out clues and codes, but we ARE good at reading what …
