Well to be honest i also expected a bit more after seeing the datamined dlc content, however in my eyes its not that much of a problem considering that we have more to play through.
Besides who cares about it being survivor cause i definitly am not aiming to be at the top leaderboard in a more SP oriented game. I rather want to enjoy the new environment, even though well knowing its not much to be there story- and narrative wise.
I think that somehow everyone of us dreamt about the dlc packs (especially the big upcoming ones in terms of hdd space
) to be more then just survivor maps that tell actually more about the persons we gotta play but i accept that its (probably) not the case. Although i personally also expected it, it does not mean that i can not cope with it but rather that i try to play them for what i can and to get back into the feeling i want to experience.
More storycontent is always nice, without any doubt but more storycontent also means more work and CA has delivered a nice story already even though we expect more of course
. It in no way diminishes their current work whether it was recycled during the development phase of the actual game (assets, models, level design etc. asf.) or was reconsidered to be something different due to the lack of time needed to make it a fully fleshed out storycontent filled experience that fits the lore perfectly and adds every little piece of an answer we expect to see regarding the characters we have read many things about during the main storyline
Besides guys who can tell us that the other upcoming dlc packs will not have certain terminals or storyline elements (that do not require a narrative audio track
- though i believe that like with many big projects in huge and well known universes and especially triple A titles there were more recordings made during the development of the main storyline so who knows
... ) that maybe tell us more about what we are to witness in the three maps that we get
We simply do not know the actual content from the other survivor maps so ... and even if its not in there i know what i will deal with and still get them cause i like to play the game for what i experienced it, a real Alien
experience that i searched for for quite some time
However of course i agree that as i have now many times outlined that it would be better to have more storyline aspects built into the maps but yeah ... CA does not consider it the same with at least corporate lockdown.
