Turtle Rock Director: Evolve’s DLC Maps Will All Be Free to Download
The co-founder of Turtle Rock Studios made a bold statement about how DLC affects the gaming community.
In an interview with IGN, Phil Robb, the Creative Director of Evolve, has let the world know that every DLC map for Evolve will be free for all of its players. Robb explained that this is to avoid having players booted or excluded from Evolve's group-oriented gameplay just because they haven't purchased an extra feature of the game online. It would be wrong to exclude groups of gamers from playing areas of the game with one another just because some didn't feel like paying extra and some did.
"First thing we [Evolve's creative leads] said was we can't break the community up, so all of our maps will be free. We never want anyone to get booted off of a server because they haven't bought something," Robb said. "We'll have characters and monsters, and even if you don't buy them, if your buddy wants to buy the DLC, that's cool, and your game will be enhanced through his purchase. So, you won't be able to play as those characters, but you will certainly be able to play with those characters."
Evolve will launch on Feb. 10, 2015 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Pre-ordering Evolve will grant you alpha and beta testing access as well as the Monster Expansion Pack for free.
