Octodad: Dadliest Catch gets 'Shorts' DLC on October 14

If you're looking for more insane octopus-related content, Octodad: Dadliest Catch will get its free 'Shorts' DLC this coming Tuesday.


We've learned an awful lot about what it means to be both a father and an octopus trying to pass as a normal human through Octodad: Dadliest Catch. But the story of his marriage and his everyday suburban life is just the beginning. Developer Young Horses is ready to tell even more Octodad tales with the Shorts DLC, set to arrive next week at no extra charge.

The Shorts DLC will feature two Octodad side stories: Dad Romance and Medical Mess. The former takes a peek into life after Octodad's first meeting with Scarlet aboard the 'Cod of War' vessel. The latter sees Octodad causing hijinks in a hospital.

The DLC will appear on the main menu, following a free update on Tuesday, October 14, on both the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. Those that have yet to pick the game up will be able to pick it up for half-price on that day, thanks to a week-long sale.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
