The sprawling, zombie-infested cityscape of Pacific City not providing you with enough mayhem, chaos, and action to satisfy your ravenous appetite for such things? Luckily for you, Ruffian Games feels your pain, and they are currently working at least two downloadable content packs for their recently released, and fairly received sequel Crackdown 2.
Ruffian producer James Cope recently told MTV Multiplayer Blog that the first pack, entitled Toy Box, will reintroduce players to the Keys to the City debug mode that lets players spawn objects at will, and will also introduce new gadgets and vehicles.
Deluge, the other pack currently in the works, will, in Cope’s words, introduce “a completely new way to play the game,” as opposed to simply throwing in “some new map packs for the game you’ve already got.” Could the "deluge" refer to a literal flood of some kind? Or perhaps a way to direct massive amounts of infected around the map? Don't know, and Ruffian isn't telling just yet, so guess away.
It sounds as though the DLC packs will, at least in part, address a lot of the Crackdown 1.5 criticisms the game has received. If this is the case, then, as MTV points out, it would be a clear demonstration of what happens when developers aren’t given enough time to make the game they want to make. Luckily, DLC can fill in those gameplay gaps post-launch, but that should always be a last resort.
Don’t you think?
