I love video games. I have an active and enthusiastic love for video games. When I started working at a video game studio, I was the only game director in the office. I got to work with the most experienced, most talented, and most fun gamers in the office, and it was a blast.
It has been an honor working with these developers, and I hope I get to play with them again soon. It’s just that I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to miss some of these sessions because I have some personal commitments that prevent me from going to work at the moment. So my favorite gaming-related games are ones that I can come home and play on my Xbox.
As one game director told me, “I’ve got so many games in development, I’ve probably got a couple of them in my office right now waiting for me to come back.
Well that was a mouthful, but what about games that are a little different? These days that means RPGs, or games with a story or world that has a very short development period. In the past, these games would be made and then released. But with the rise of “indie” games on the rise, developers are making games with a quick turnaround time. And games like Deathloop are just waiting for you to come back and play them.
In Deathloop, the game is being developed by a very small team of people who are all making a game. The development process takes weeks, but after the game has been out for a little while, the team develops a few more iterations of the game’s world and characters and then goes back to work on the rest of the game. At the end, the team is still working on Deathloop’s story and is still developing characters and plots and puzzles and worldbuilding for the game.
You can download the game for free via Steam. The game will also be available to purchase as DLC for $3.50 a piece. This DLC costs $5.50 a piece, and will include all the new missions as well.
I’m not sure if these DLCs will be available for more than a few weeks, but I did hear that the game will be out with DLCs for 10 days. Which means not long after the end of the game.
This is good news indeed. Although I do hear that the game will be available for free and that it will be out in 10 days, it is a good sign that it will be out in less than 10 days and that the DLCs will be out shortly afterwards. So it looks like Deathloop is due for an endgame content update in the near future.
I doubt we’ll get a DLC in the next few days for sure, but I do feel that this is good news for the game and if it makes a good return on all of the DLC that has been released so far, it will be good news for the future of the game.
Well, that’s what I want to know.
