I don't know about you, but one of the greatest reasons to play Runner2 levels more than once is to try them with new characters. The game has many with many costumes... but soon, there will be even more in the form of DLC!

Hey everyone! Ever since the launch of Runner2, people have been asking us if we planned on releasing any sort of DLC for it. Being the mischievous lot we are, we typically alluded that such a thing might happen and left it at that. Well, today, we're prepared to announce the impending release of the Good Friends Character Pack! It will introduce seven new characters to the world of Runner2, and we'll be revealing them a few at a time until the DLC hits Steam on... Thursday! And don't worry, console folks - a release for 360, PS3 and Wii U will follow!
New characters is the furthest reason for me wanting to replay this game and is one of the worst add-ons a game can release as paid for DLC. Unless it adds new gameplay mechanics, which it won't, it feels pretty pointless to me. Ah well, I'm sure it'll still sell but I'm staying away from this.
$3 for 7 characters is something I might be able to get behind... assuming I care about more than just Quote. And assuming that's what the end of the blog post was implying... No price truly confirmed.
So far nobody at Negative World seems content with the DLC being character based. Perhaps everyone should hit up Twitter to voice their disapproval. Otherwise, they'll think they went far enough and this sort of level of DLC will continue.
@VofEscaflowne That's kind of what I was hoping this would be. A Cave Story level with its own Cave Story esque backgrounds and music....that would've been pretty cool. If it's just a reskin of the main character, then I'm definitely not plunking down money for it.
It stinks, because this used to be something that PC gamers could just tinker with on their own. I remember trying to model a character to put into Quake 3 haha. (PS I wasn't very good at it)
