No DLC For Darksiders Say Vigil

Vigil Games' creative boss man and ex-comic book artist Joe Madureira has confirmed that there will be no downloadable content for Darksiders.
Chatting with Eurogamer, Madureira also stated that multiplayer failed to make the cut due to the challenges of developing a new IP with a new team.
"Vigil has a very strong all-or-nothing mentality, and if we're not confident we can pull it off, we're not doing it. So we focused on making the most kick-ass single-player game possible," he revealed in a live interview on the site.
Madureira went on to explain the game's focus on narrative, saying, "Until recently there wasn't that much emphasis on game stories. It's not what sells a game - it's all about the gameplay. Comics still produce fantastic stories, it's still one of the purest visual storytelling mediums, which is why it still makes such an impact.
"The sad fact is, most game stories stink."
Buzz surrounding Darksiders has been mostly positive so far, the brutal action and compelling story winning the game numerous plaudits.
The game's out this Friday in Europe.
