Why is the Escape Plan DLC only 100 KB?

5 replies 112 views Edited Jun 22, 2012

I don't own Escape Plan yet, but I wanted to pick up the DLC before the price went up.  I then noticed that the DLC was only 100 KB, which seemed incredibly small.  Can anybody that owns Escape Plan tell me if the DLC was released as a patch, and the DLC purchase just downloads an unlock?  Or does that 100 KB really just contain the entirety of what the DLC has to offer?  I would hate to think that the DLC was in the game from the very beginning, and the DLC purchase just unlocks it; would be the download equivalent of on-disc DLC.

100KB DLC isn't that rare. Some PS3 games and even Vita games preload DLC along with the game updates, ready for unlocking.

For example: LBP2 preloads all the DLC to ensure that DLC-owning people can play with Non-DLC owners.

DLCs that have small file size are just an add-on or activation/unlock code, the patch that you have to update added the DLC into the game, the 100kb file you pay for is uses to unlock it, same thing go with UMVC3, Uncharted, Shinobido, everything is added when you update, you just need that 100kb to unlock them, kinda look a lot like on-disc DLC, but then again, Vita uses CARD, so it's maybe On-card DLC???

Pretty sure it's just a key to tell your game to update to the newest version, which you download from the game's start screen.

Yep.  Escape Plan has gone from ~740MB to ~950MB with the release of the "Asylum" DLC.  The actual content comes with the update/patch download.

Why is it already being in the download a problem? Even more so why is it a problem when the DLC was all of 25 cents?
