Callisto Protocol team Striking Distance Studios has been queried about its plans for post-launch support and the possibility of DLC, with the developer responding that it plans on four years’ worth. That’s a lot for a single-player-only game — only titles like Dying Light have achieved such a feat — but the team’s response to any expansion is causing some confusion. It has given the impression that its DLC plans are still up in the air with the game three months away. However, it is already selling season passes.
The comment came through an interview conducted by True trophies At Gamescom. CTO Mark James added: “We’ve left the world expandable. We’ve created a world that can tell different stories, and so we can either tell those stories through DLC, or We can actually tell those stories through later products. We’ve left them open.
A perfectly simple comment to make, but expectations change when you’re already selling a season pass through pre-orders. on the PS StoreA Digital Deluxe Edition bundled into one season pass For £74.99/$89.99. There are also some bonus packs, but these are also part of it Standard Day One Edition Priced at £54.99/$69.99 on PS5. So, the season pass is worth £20/$20.
The PS Store listing doesn’t detail what you’ll get as part of the Season Pass, but with the game now only three months away, you’d like to think the plans are solid, at least internally. This does not appear to be the case at the time of writing. True Trophies suggests some fun DLC ideas during interviews, but there’s never a concrete answer as to what’s to be shared.
James adds: “We like to think of it as a franchise – each developer when they [make a new] IP, they like to think of it as a franchise investment. Creating new IP is really expensive, so we always want to try and make the most of it.”
