Uncharted 3 Won’t Have Single-Player DLC

Uncharted 3 will have DLC, in the form of co-op and other muliplayer stuff. But it won’t have single-player DLC, and here’s why, courtesy of Naughty Dog’s Justin Richmond (to Eurogamer):

There’s a very specific reason. Whenever we sit down and think we should do some single-player DLC, someone pitches something and we realize – that’s a five hour level.

We’d rather build out another game than we would do episodic content. We’re so small that we can’t afford to have a whole team working on DLC.

Well, OK, that seems like a good enough reason. I do like new Uncharted games, or at least I hope I do. I mean I liked the first to and am planning on liking the third one. Please don’t suck. God, that would devastate me.

This is alright I guess, but what about the single player skins?! This kills the replay value of the game, and honestly, I might as well get Uncharted 2 GOTY edition. Just saying, If they had a little more time to work on the game, then maybe they could’ve put an Unlock store in! But, I guess thats a little late now, seeing that their wont be any Single player skins as a dlc either. :(

I don’t see a really good reason buying a “Skins” DLC or unlocking them in Multiplayer shouldn’t also unlock the same skin in the Single player game.

Although I do dabble in MP, I typically play SP much more often, especially if there are trophies/achievements to be had. I would have loved if the downloadable skins in UC2 and UC3 were usable in single player and would have probably bought all of the available DLC skins in a heartbeat for both UC2 and UC3. I’m not sure why Naughty Dog doesn’t see this as an opportunity.

After I finish the single player game in UC3, I may go back once to beat the Crushing Level and/or treasure hunt. Not sure if I’m going to grind for all the challenges since the unlimited ammo “Tweak” is no longer on the table in UC3 and there is no longer a “Store” in SP to unlock cool stuff. I will probably just go back to UC1 and UC2 SP to wrap up the trophies that I missed in the first couple of playthroughs.
