Lots of us have played and loved Santa Monica Studio’s excellent God of War on PS4. While it’s a generously sized game with plenty to see and do aside from the core story, many fans were left wondering whether any DLC would follow later down the line. Obviously, no extra content was released, aside from the Photo Mode and New Game Plus. It’s great that Sony was able to release a game that was complete from day one, but we couldn’t help but feel an expansion of some kind wouldn’t have gone amiss.
As it turns out, the game’s creative director, Cory Barlog, did have some kind of plan in mind for DLC, but it would’ve been too much. Speaking on the GameOverGreggy Show, Barlog said he had a “really fun” idea for DLC, but that it was ultimately “too ambitious”. He stated that it would’ve been on a similar level to The Last of Us: Left Behind or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy — in other words, enough to be its own standalone product.
“It would end up being its own thing,” Barlog said. “Rightfully so, everybody had said to me, ‘Dude, this is crazy. This isn’t DLC, it’s a little too big.'”
It’d be fascinating to know what it was that the director was cooking up, but it’s possible it’ll wind up in a future sequel if it’s a strong enough concept.
