Normally I am not the type to copy & paste anything, but I feel the article says it all. There is new information on the DLC for the game Crackdown, and we would like to share it with you!
"At the Leipzig Game Convention, Crackdown producer Peter Connelly told 1UP about the downloadable content plans for the Microsoft-published title. According to Connelly, Crackdown will see a demo before the game ships. After the game is released, in the first 30 days (as per Microsoft's preferences -- they talked about it at Gamefest), the first batch of downloadable content will be released. That batch is ten new playable agents. The agents will be playable in both single and online co-op modes and will be part of a single download (not divided up into multiple packs). Currently, there is no female model among them. Connelly explained that creating a female character would take a ton of work because of the redesigning of the animations and bone structure for a female character. Connolly isn't ruling out a female character as downloadable content at some point, though.
The next piece of downloadable content the Crackdown team plans on releasing is what they are tentatively calling a "replay editor." The replay editor will allow players to capture moments from their Crackdown experience. It might be a huge chained explosion they set up, or a recording of them juggling a semi truck with rockets from the game's rocket launcher.
Finally, Connelly expressed the team's desire to add another island to Crackdown's city. See, the game takes place across three islands (think full-fledged cities for these islands) and adding a fourth is something they'd love to do. The problems adding a fully-featured island to the game are numerous, though. Existing code in the game would have to allow for the rerouting and redirecting of traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular onto the new island -- but Connolly said the team coded Crackdown with this in mind. While the replay editor and 10 Agent downloads are very real, for now, adding a fourth island to Crackdown isn't nearly as much of a reality."
