God Eater 2 To Receive Free Monthly DLC After Launch

By Eugene . October 25, 2013 . 2:22pm

Namco have some great news for long-term fans of God Eater 2—the game will continue to receive monthly free updates post launch.

 

This is on top of the already pretty spiffy way to drum up interest in the game by offering the entire first three chapters free online.

 

(As a reminder, these three chapters that can also immediately be moved over to the full game if you buy it.)

 

These updates will consist of various upgrades such as new short stories, side missions, seasonal clothing’s, varied and sundry collaborations with other games/companies and of course bug-fixing and balancing.

    ok, this need to get localization confirmation, like, 4 months ago!

  • TheExile285

    I may need to import a Japanese Vita TV for this. That way I won’t have to switch accounts on my current Vita.

    I’m gonna weep if this doesn’t come to America ;_;

    • Kaetsu

      I want a vita tv so bad. I don’t want to drop 200 dollars on a vita but if I can get the tv for a bit cheaper I would be so happy. The vita has many great games I want to play.

    • FlyingPony

      I want Vita TV too. Larger screen for my favorite Vita games (Killzone Mercenary/SoulSacrifice)

  • MXC

    Come on someone answer our prayers for localization with as much DLC as possible. Screw the anime costumes if need be! I got 2 friends to like GEB and when I told em about this they got hyped! 3 day-one sales here! I can get more T^T pleaaase

  • Ryujin

    Oh man. As much as I like to hear the game will be getting lots of post-launch support (at the very least in Japan), this does mean I’d have to go through a lot of hassle if I decide to import the game.

    If this gets localized with the same support the Japanese version will be getting, I’ll embrace Namco as my new god. This, coming from a convinced atheist, means a lot.

      I’m tempted to import it. I’m a big fan of the first game, and apart from missing some story queues, there shouldn’t be any reason why one shouldn’t be able to pick up and play the imported title. I just don’t want to through the hassle of account switching just to purchase/download DLC, especially since this title is highly likely to be localized. Best best is to wait it out for a few months.

      • Ryujin

        My thoughts exactly.

  • Arcana Wiz

    If it be like Soul Sacrifice, this gunna be great…. I want this so much…. why there isnt a localization announcement yet!?

    • http://papped.webatu.com papped

      God Eater and Soul Sacrafice play pretty different. Personally I like God Eater much better… Hopefully they addressed the stage repitition in this one though.

      • Arcana Wiz

        i was referencing at the DLC, SS gave us a lot of free DLCs, and a lot of new monsters.

        • http://papped.webatu.com papped

          ah ok, that makes more sense.

  • Jahred Down

    Dear D3 or Namco Bandai,

    Localize this.

    Love,

    Everyone Everywhere.

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      So much this lol

    • Valtiel Ikari

      you win +10000000000 internets!
      EDIT: wow, people thumbs me down just because I stated in a (atempted) funny way that I agree with the guy.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Agreed, after playing the demo I has been difficult to control my hype!

    • PersonaSpace

      Except not D3 seeing as they didn’t bring over any DLC except for one.

  • tubers

    So does this mean the new demo is out already?

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水木

      Haven’t seen it

    • Mugen555

      It’s seems it got delayed. The team make official statement and bowing to apologize to the fans that they can’t finish it on time during NicoNico stream on 24/10. So they went full force on completing main product

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 禍津水木

    This is pretty big, Toukiden didn’t announce anything like this until after the game released I believe but the DLC isn’t all free, some are paid

  • Lemski07

    Neeeds another memory for jap psn account for that free 3 chapters.

  • Anthony Birken

    It must be my birthday….now if only they could localize…

    • Kamakuma

      I swear reading the title I thought they said localized… But it was just free dlc. (My brain hurts) @..@

  • cyberkinghardy

    Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth 1, Exstetra, God Eater 2 release dates are 7 days apart..OMG I want money to rain on me.

  • Eclipse

    Wow, now this is DLC done the right way.

    I hope there’s some Toaru Majutsu no Index costumes like the last game.

  • neogeno

    Just stick it in my veins already.

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

    Hope one of those patches includes online.
    (It won’t)

  • Daverost

    Between this and the long demo with the transferable save, it could just be my imagination but it looks like they’re taking some cues from the successful ideas of Soul Sacrifice, probably since they’re looking to target the same audience. Of course, this all works out wonderfully for us.

    Really need this localized, though. With the iM@S DLC intact.

  • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

    Hope they localize the Burst version of this. I think God Eater is better than Monster Hunter.

    • TheExile285

      I hope Namco doesn’t make a Burst version. I’d rather they just add all the editions they want via DLC. A Burst version means a longer wait for localization (if we get it at all)

      • http://jesse-dylan.livejournal.com Jesse_Dylan

        Yeah, I’m okay with whatever as long as we get it!

  • LM009

    sounds too nice for namco there’s definitely a catch

    • TheExile285

      The catch is they want people to buy it :V

      • LM009

        free =/= free? o_O

        • TheExile285

          I meant buy the game

  • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

    I’m curious as to why Namco won’t consider localizing GE2.. Wouldn’t it do sort of well seeing as the Vita lacks a lot of games to satisfy Vita owners lol? Its a perfect opportunity seeing as most people let their Vita catch some dust.

    • TheExile285

      They never said they wouldn’t. That is the problem. The game is in the awkward position where we don’t know if it is or isn’t getting localized.

      You may be thinking of the Tales games on Vita which they’ve said no to 3 times.

      • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

        The thing is I think it’d be better to consider localizing it sooner before the Vita starts getting more games so that the sales might be a bit more successful over here. Once the PS4 comes out I think the Vita will have a little bit more units sold which could lead to players to try GE2 since it lacks too many games that could please the taste of all players.

    awesome, now gimme moar Dr. Leah!!
