View Full Version : I'm new to gaming...what is a "DLC" and how do they work?

I assume a "DLC" is an update with fixes and new features? How do you get them? Does the PS3 automatically prompt you to get them for the game you are playing? Do you have to go to a site and download them?

DLC stands for Down-Loadable Content.
You will have to sign in to the PSS in order to get it.
Companies will usually claim money for DLC but they can also distribute it for free.

DLC is a kind of add-on that adds more content to games.

I hope you now understand what is DLC. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

DLC stands for Downloadable Content, and isn't usually a bug fix, just a game addition. You will almost definately not get promted. Firstly you must be connected to the Playstation Network (If you're not, it won't work) - when you load up Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, on the main menu, there should be the option 'Extras'. Click on it then the 'Downloadable' option. Here you will be able to buy the DLC and have fun killing people. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hey there, welcome to the forums (:

DLC is 'DownLoadable Content'.

It's basically optional content that can be added to the game after it's release. Some DLC is free and some costs.
