* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has two expansion packs, ''Tribunal'' and ''Bloodmoon'', adding additional areas and quests, and possibilities (as the title hints, the character can become a lycanthrope). However, they also update the game .exe to include additional functions not present in patches for the original game, introducing unfortunate dependencies on the expansion packs for the vast majority of the enormous selection of ''Morrowind'' mods created by the community.
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' has had several small downloadable content packs, and one full sized expansion, ''Shivering Isles''.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has two downloadable expansions, the first being ''Dawnguard''. It adds small new areas to the ends of the world map, and new vampire and werewolf content with a quest line where you can choose to join the vampires or Dawnguard (vampire hunters). The second expansion, ''Dragonborn'', adds Solstheim, the Nord-ruled island north of Morrowind from the ''Bloodmoon'' expansion, as well as side trips into the realm of Hermaeus Mora, the daedric prince of ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow. The [[UpdatedRerelease Special Edition]] includes both of these expansions out of the box.

** The [[SuperNintendo SNES]] version of ''Secret Missions'', the first [=WC1=] add-on, was a fully separate game that didn't need the original, but that was a function of cartridge-based games for which the method described in the ''[[SonicTheHedgehog Sonic & Knuckles]]'' example, above, was impractical on the basis of costs (WC at the time not being the [[CashCowFranchise cash cow]] that was the Sonic series).

* ''VideoGame/RainbowSix'' had a follow up in the form of ''[[NintendoHard Eagle Watch,]] a series of depressingly tough levels. It's sequel contained Urban Operations that included mod support (such as replacing Rainbow with [[RogueWarrior SEAL Team Six]] and several 9/11 fan add ons), Covert Operations that includes a counterterror encyclopedia and officer test (in story one of the members of Rainbow was moving from an enlisted soldier to intel), and Black Thorn, which interestingly changed an airport level to a bus terminal after September 11, and the developers released the map for modders to play around with. The third game was followed up by Athena Sword and a Korean only expansion pack that is free to download. The XBOX and [=PS2=] conversions were similar in having stand alone expansions to the main game, some deviating from the PC versions.

{{MMORPG}}s used to rely heavily on this model and the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft biggest]] [[VideoGame/UltimaOnline titles]] [[VideoGame/GuildWars with]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV physical]] [[VideoGame/{{Rift}} editions]] still do, either as the sole method of distribution or as an option for those with poor internet connections. FreeToPlay titles deliver most of their content updates [[DigitalDistribution online]] but may occasionally bundle several patches together on a disc in an example of this trope.

* The original ''VideoGame/OperationFlashpoint : Cold War Crisis'' first received the ''[[POVSequel Red Hammer]]'' expansion, which only added a new campaign for the Soviet forces and was made by the game's publisher (Codemasters). The second and more substantial expansion was ''Resistance'', which was made by the main developers again and offered a lot of technical and gameplay improvements ({{RPG Elements}}, sidearms, better sounds, animations and graphics) in addition to a new setting and new [[LaResistance guerilla warfare-themed]] campaign. Notably, the devs also offered various vehicle and weapon addons prior and after the release of ''Resistance'' in the form of free DownloadableContent - this was still a relatively new concept back in 2002-2004. All of the addons and most of the expansions were later included in the collector's edition of the game.
