Where is the Until Dawn pre-order DLC? In the middle of the story


This isn't how to do pre-order DLC

Over the past three nights I've watched my lovely boyfriend and our hunky Australian roommate stream Until Dawn and after finishing the game we decided to play the pre-order DLC chapter "The Road Not Taken" only we couldn't find it. Turns out we already had.

After researching online and finding many people were also confused I figured I'd get to the bottom of this and clear up the confusion. The DLC really isn't a standalone chapter, but the final section of chapter two where the new couple Emily and Matt go back to look for her bag after Emily gets into an argument at the cabin. It mostly contains conversations between the couple about their relationship and Emily's past with Mike.

Basically not a whole lot happens, and you're not missing out on much.

Pre-order DLC shouldn't be a part of the main story ripped out and held ransom, no matter how insignificant it may seem. The fact that this section doesn't have a menu option or any reference in the game as it being DLC makes it seem like it was just that, content pulled from the main story to dangle in front of consumers like a carrot to a donkey. I dislike pre-ordering and pre-order DLC in general, but at the very least make it something cosmetic or optional, not part of the main story of the game. 

Before anyone tries to call me a hypocrite, I pre-ordered the game a few hours before release to preload it. After having watched a full playthrough of Until Dawn I have to agree with Chris' review and say it is a pretty enjoyable game, especially for horror fans. Just know that if you didn't pre-order it, you're missing out on actual main game content which hasn't been announced for release separately thus far.
