A somewhat minor table, the DLC table displays all official expansions/Downloadable content (DLC) for a game (content included with a patch does NOT count). The layout is very similar to the Availability table, but not as complicated.

The table should be placed directly underneath the Availability table.

DLC row breakdown

Section Definition Notes
Name The name of the expansion/DLC. Follow the naming conventions as set below.
Notes Extra information relating to the particular DLC (pricing, bundle inclusion, etc.)
OS The operating systems that the DLC is available on. Possible values are "DOS", "Windows", "Mac OS", "OS X", and "Linux". Separate each OS with a comma (,).
Layout and naming conventions

Due to the countless types of DLC available, a DLC table can quickly become confusing if not formatted properly.

The following conventions should be used for all DLC tables:

Naming

  • Retail expansions (i.e. had a physical release) should have the full name used.
    • Ex. Unreal Mission Pack 1: Return to Na Pali
  • Digital expansions and addons (DLC) should have only have the sub-name used.
    • Ex. Call of Duty: Black Ops II - Revolution becomes Revolution

Layout

  • All entries should be listed from oldest to newest.
  • In the event of multiple expansion/DLC types, this format should be used (the previous rule still applies)
    • Season Pass
    • Pre-order DLC
    • Physical expansions
    • Digital expansions
    • Meta-game DLC (ex. Extra Weapons Slots)
    • New characters (with other content)
    • New weapons
    • Other customization content (not a skin)
    • New characters (no extra content)
    • Character/weapon skins
    • Everything else
