Yogscast DLC teased for Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Recently, Sumo Digital producer Steve Lycett has been teasing a new controversial character to be added to the roster of the PC version of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Nothing has been formally announced as of yet, but according to a recent stream from the Yogscast – one of UK’s top Youtube channels – it was revealed that they’re pushing for a new Humble Bundle that is currently not active, which reportedly has Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and a new racer as part of the deal. In addition, their livestream revealed not only the bundle, but that there is charity DLC on the way for the PC version of the game. They didn’t reveal what it is, but given Lycett’s comments, and what they mentioned and showed on the stream, the new racer could be Yogscast’s very own Simon.

Keep in mind it is entirely for charity and not a deal of a Lets Play “celebrity” taking away a spot of a potential SEGA character. Lycett also mentioned that there is more stuff on the way that would be bigger. But for now, this is whats set for December 6th.

    So the console versions have already been abandoned?

      It’s far easier to make free DLC for games on Steam than on consoles. Besides that, all DLC characters so far have been characters exclusive to PC games.

    Nice to see a good game getting more content!

  3. Something tells me that the devs caught an eye on ONLINE celebrities, too. Now what I need to see is a dA fan character or even dA’s mascot in there.

    Doesn’t invoke much faith in the character selection for future sequels if this is what they come up with as DLC.

    • TimmiT says:

      It’s not like they would have even come up with this at all if it wasn’t for the Yogscast charity thing. Sumo knows very well that this isn’t what we wanted for DLC and besides this they’re also working on bigger DLC.

      Sumo isn’t who my problem with, it’s SEGA.

    This is about the third time or so Sumo’s been in the position of expecting some sort of backlash for DLC that isn’t for all platforms and caters to an, at best, small minority of people who already play the game or are prospective purchasers. I think that latter half is a comfortable statement to make, considering the phenomenal departure this is from (ostensibly) the core concept of the game. I’d think there’s virtually no one who already played the game who wanted this character in it. That this game is being used as an advertising vehicle is well established at this point.

    It would really serve them better at this point to be upfront with whatever bigger plans they have. Alternatively, they can accept the periodic “naggings” from Sega fans, who I assume just aren’t broad minded enough to understand.

    disclaimer: I realize Sumo is not the last word on roster

    I’m tired of trying to understand these odd DLC choices. It’s been so long since the game came out, hardly anyone would care if meaningful DLC was released anyway.
