People have already had a chance to play Need for Speed and build up a feeling of how it’s going to be. Now that many will have used up their 10 hours of EA Access trial though, it will be time to think of the future and what DLC will come.
In a recent interview with Vice Craig Sullivan the creative director at Ghost Games revealed the plans for DLC for the game, which will be to give it all away for free:
“You can never say never, as if we ended up doing DLC for this game for 10 years, I can’t know what’s happening in 10 years’ time. All I can say is, honestly, hand on heart, is there are absolutely no plans to charge for content in this game. We’re going to give you everything for free. I’ve seen the plans for what’s going to happen over the next few weeks and months – there’s nothing in there, by which I mean, we don’t even have the ability to charge you in the game. There’s no store to speak of.”
Add to the fact that there will be no microtransactions too then this is positive news for players. Though the game is not without its controversy.
Now that players have got a good feel for the game and seen other players around the open-world environment the big question still remains, why does it force you to be online? The game can be played in a single player style and isn’t a strong MMO, so why force the connection? Obviously this is going to be seen negatively when people are going to consider purchasing it.
Does the news of the free DLC make the game more appealing? Does the issue of an online connection being required cause problems? Let us know your views on the subject below.
