Turtle Rock Studios Says Evolve DLC Maps are Going to be Free

By   /   Nov 23, 2014

We are more than two months away from the release of Turtle Rock’s co-op shooter, but that doesn’t mean the developers have not thought out what they are going to do with the game in the future; the Evolve DLC maps for instance.

Creative director for Evolve at Turtle Rock Studios, Phil Robb was talking to IGN recently when he discussed their plans for the future of the game.

In his opinion, putting a price tag on the Evolve DLC maps would mean that the community would be broken, which is something that they don’t want to do:

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.

Moreover, he revealed that apart from the DLC maps, they had also planned more hunters and more monsters to take the game further. Both of these would be paid however, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to spend money on them.

If one of your playmates buys the new character it would obviously benefit the whole team:

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 is being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and it is slated for a worldwide release on February 10, 2015.
