To increase the game experience by offering some extra downloadable content after launch has almost become a requirement for new releases. Battlefield 3 is no exception to this rule, and CVG reports that the developer DICE has bigger plans than ever before when it comes to DLC for the upcoming shooter.
Creative director Lars Gustavsson said that the developer has “completely restructured” the studio around its plans for add-on content for Battlefield 3.
“Nowadays, we have operations team who looks at the title when it starts getting closer to launch (or long before) with potential downloadable content and so on, to really have a plan,” he said.
“Otherwise you’re quite likely to start slipping. If you’re focusing just before release on what you’re going to ship post-launch, then I think you have problems.”
“So, yes there is a massive plan in place.”
The game is scheduled for launch on November 25 this year.
