Evolve’s Free And Optional DLC Wants To Keep The Community Together

By   /   Nov 24, 2014

 

Developer Turtle Rock Studios announced that its upcoming shooter, Evolve, will release downloadable content (DLC) for maps, but as a freebie. This is in contrast with the Call of Duty model, which breaks maps in several paid packs.

Creative Director of Turtle Rock, Phil Robb, expressed their desire to keep the community connected, which is the driving factor in making maps free. Given that players without DLC could otherwise not play with those who have purchased extras, this will keep everyone together.

Moreover, post-launch DLC will be optional in Evolve games, as Phil Robb stated:

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.

Those who preorder Evolve will be able to receive the first monster DLC for free.

In the game, four human hunters take on one player, who gets to play as a giant beast. Hunters have different classes, but different monsters with unique skills can be chosen as well.

Evolve will have a progression system both inside and outside of the game’s matches, which affects different unlocked content, such as new hunters and so on.

A first Alpha test on PS4 and Xbox One has already passed, though it had slight hiccups on the former, due to Sony’s big firmware updates. A Beta test will follow on Xbox One in January.

Prior to Evolve, Turtle Rock Studios found its fame with the creation of Left 4 Dead, one of the PC crowd’s favorite multiplayer shooters. Aside from current consoles, Evolve will be available on PC as well.
