You know, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception is almost perfect on its own. In fact, we say it's about as close to perfection as a video game can get right now.

But that doesn't mean it can't get even better. There's a fancy new feature in this generation for console games called "downloadable content," and you can definitely expect Naughty Dog to deliver some fantastic add-on stuff for their latest masterpiece.

In speaking in the latest episode of GameTrailers' Bonus Round , Uncharted 3 game director Justin Richmond says the fans will be happy with that DLC:

"We have some really cool stuff for DLC this time, even way cooler than what we had for Uncharted 2…there's one piece of content in particular that I think fans are going to go ballistic for."

We still don't know exactly what to expect, but we know it'll be multiplayer-oriented. Recently, Naughty Dog said they couldn't embrace the idea of single-player DLC because all their ideas were just too huge for add-on content, and besides, they didn't want to gimp the amazing cinematic experience. And we really appreciate that. Finished Richmond:

"Because we did so well with multiplayer last time, we kept saying we have to have a plan from the beginning…so we have that this time. There's a ton of DLC content that's coming."

Any ideas on what we'll get?

Looks like I'm not going to regret signing up for the Fortune Hunters' Club then! But as long as the campaign is brilliant, I'll be happy. As much as I love Uncharted's multiplayer, I still buy it for the single player experience. Good thing we're getting the full single player experience on the disc.

I just hope they stick to NOT creating single player DLC. That would completely ruin the experience.

With that said, this time around I'd like to see some more co-op DLC. I played a lot of co-op with my friends and that was something we wished there would have been more of. It was a lot of fun, for so long… They sound very energetic about this so that should make us all excited for it!

Can't wait til Tuesday! Sux I prolly won't get to playing til thursday though, the beginning of the weeks are just packed full of stuff to do.

How could SP DLC ruin the experience? You just add something new outside the story like Festival of Blood did.

That right there would ruin the experience. Festival of blood works because its an open world game where gameplay takes presidence over story. Not that the stories are bad, cus I love the games. But I love to play them cus they are so fun to play.

ND has already said they wouldn't release single player DLC because they get too in depth with it and at that point it turns into a new game. That's why I say don't even bother with SP DLC then, for two reasons. One being that if they try and continue with the story – let's use U3 as an example – then the retail release feels unfinished and that's not good. I and I'm sure many others would rather have closure at the end of these games, that's why I play them to see where the story takes me.. Two if they try to create little Uncharted short stories (not relevent to the retail versions) of DLC then it could become native and feel like it's not part of Uncharted. Why make a decent 2 hour piece of DLC when you can add 6-8 more hours too it and create another great GAME?!?!

Creating SP DLC to me would ruin the whole reason I play these games which is for the SP, and story. I'd rather know I'm playing their vision in what is a complete full experience with no reason to add to it.

Sorry to reply, I can't edit my comment: but in short I don't think ND could accomplish in DLC what they have so far for the Uncharted SP. These games have great gameplay, but they are story, and character heavy. Short DLC just wouldn't give us that same experience, therefore the experience we are getting from these games is compromised.

Nah, you just add a 5 hour adventure that doesn't add to or subtract from the main quest.

@bigrailer

I agree with that. They have a beginning and an end. No need to add something to the story like that. That's one thing I know most people disliked about Alan Wake. The game was not finished so they could finish it up with SP DLC which I thought was a big no-no for me.

I do enjoy MP on U2. That's the most fun I've had on MP in awhile. I mute the rude folks so it doesn't bother me at all.

Why make a 5 hour DLC, when at that point if you have a strong foundation why not add 3-4 more hours and have a full retail game? 2 hours isn't long enough, if 5 hours is why not just create a whole new retail adventure? That's a bigger win for the fans.

shame it wont be any co-op or SP related DLC.
i wish more developers would do story based DLC or at least co-op based DLC!
id love to see a new level added, or a few new co-op maps.
who said DLC has to be restricted to multiplayer only?

Co op DLC would be great, I would really look forward to that. But in a game like U3, the addition of story through DLC would not be a good idea.

But single player DLC does have it's place. Borderlands, AC, inFamous are all great examples of scenarios it works. Notice how those games are open world, and objective based. Not linear and story driven.

dlc just is'nt about adding to a story, map packs or adding side quests.
sp dlc could work without ruining U3, just add some different outfits, maby a fancy
gun or two.

Well you can unlock different outfits and ways to play the SP through completing various objectives. So even then SP DLC in that sense is well, meh.

Interested to see what they have up their sleeves this time around, I have all DLC from UC 2 and enjoy it. Whatever they have for U3 I'll be for sure getting it. Can't wait for tomorrow to get my copy man I'm itching to play it right now
