The Pirates of the Caribbean Level Kit, includes a completely new adventure spanning five new levels and a mini-game. Be sure to put on your swimming gear as these new levels feature a completely new gameplay element that will make you all wet. That’s right….WATER!!!

LBP Water

For the first time in LBP history, water will be a new gameplay element for you to play, and create your own new water-drenched levels for the rest of the community to play. In addition, you’ll have access to tons of new stickers, objects and other create materials plus a bunch of new trophies to collect. Last but not least, is a bonus “Pelegosto” costume only available in this Level Kit. All this for $5.99 – a definite must buy.

So you have to buy the level kit to have access to water? It would seem an important gameplay element update should be free in a patch…

I was kind of hoping Water would’ve been a free addition in the form of a patch. How naive of me.

If I buy this, I will do so, begrudgingly. LBP is a groundbreaking title to support, of course, and the devs deserve our backing, but to put a six-dollar price tag on Water (and the meaningless “little things” that are so conveniently packed together in the bundle)… Oh, well. Mine is a typical reaction; I’m just “taking it” and accepting that fate for what it is.

DLC for games. Whomever conceived of the notion – he’s likely sleeping on the bed money.

Finally more levels! The wait was difficult, but I’m sure it is worth the wait, and just in time for the holidays. (Good price too!)

I’m not sure how this is even possible as the holidays will be over in three weeks. How much updates can you do in three weeks?

@12 do you not know how the LBP DL’s work? you can play any of the user created levels with water but, just like the paintball gun, you can’t create a level until you buy it. I respond to you begrudgingly because of everyones feeling of entitlement to DLC. Tell you what, you make a game and make all the free dlc you want, then you can complain.

Sold. I could care less about costume packs, but level packs with new gameplay and backgrounds/music/etc will be bought day one every time. MGS pack was awesome,I’m sure this one will be as well.

Is that Ratchet & Clank one coming soon? Would have made sense to come out around A Crack In Time’s release, but I’ll still buy it when it does release.

Yo ho! Yo ho! A pirate’s life for me! I will buy both these packs cause I love LBP, and I love Disney!

One question though….

Will we see more DISNEY DLC? Or was this the only Disney DLC we will see?

I really wish we get more Disney!!

@ACDarkKnight

The paintball gun was never necessary until the MGS pack launched. Water is much bigger gameplay element that everyone, regardless of what they want to spend on DLC, should have access to. Having said that, I’m going to get it anyway because I’m a POTC fan but I don’t think it should be mandatory to shell out $6 for someone who just wants to build levels with it. MM has TONS of costumes and design packs in the store that add almost nothing to gamelay and they still sell very well. Water should be a patch, but POTC-themed levels and costumes should be charged for.

All this expensive DLC. I bought the game on launch day and will never again buy a Mm game. They screwed us by giving the GoTY addition free DLC and they milked the crap out of DLC for LBP. Screw this game and Mm.

The Level Kit (and water) look awesome — and the price is definitely fair for the Kit.

But the price of individual costumes continues to be ludicrous.

@46 agreed. This will be my first LBP DLC purchase since … wait for it … the Metal Gear Level Kit. I’m sure no one saw that coming.

The kits continue to be a great value, particularly given the levels and significant game play elements added.

The costumes on the other hand don’t fit when contrasted with the pricing on other items on PSN.

How many of the levels are full length and how many are just an intro, score challenge, or boss fight? I remember the MGS pack had 5 levels but one was an intro that you couldn’t play through and one was a boss fight. There were only 3 real story levels. How about the Pirates pack?
