All DLC Maps for Evolve Will Be Free

In a recent interview with IGN, Turtle Rock Studios’ Creative Director Phil Robb made the announcement that all of Evolve‘s DLC maps will be available free of charge.

Robb continued on by explaining that Turtle Rock did not believe in segregating the community,

“First thing we 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.”

The first DLC for the game will include new monsters and characters that players will have to purchase however.

“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 releases on February 10th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

My Opinion:

I believe this is a very smart move for the studio. I have always hated the fact I couldn’t play certain maps with my friends without paying up an extra $10 each time a new DLC is released. I am sure a bunch of other players will appreciate Turtle Rock’s decision as well. Personally, I hope this becomes a new trend with developers in the future.
