It's sad that this is becoming more and more normal with games.
The only company these days that I actually trust with DLC is Valve.
No company should worry about DLC until post-launch. Instead they should try and focus on making the game the best it can be.
This whole scheme is really pissing me off. An entire new character class? That's just not fair.'
Does anyone remember the days where companies gave you shit the day you pre-ordered the game, like a T-Shirt, and a demo for another game? Remember when expansion packs were the norm?
The hell is a mecromancer?
Assumedly the robotic equivalent of a necromancer.
While I think DLCs are stupid, Gearbox did pretty well with them for Borderlands, they actually had interesting and fun content added.
Why are you guys whining about this? They're simply saying that for their first dlc they're gonna work on a character class concept they've had lying around. It's not like they're cutting content out of the final game.
well as long as the DLCs bring a fair amount of content like the prior ones I don't really care if they announce day-1 DLC
Might just wait for a GOTY edition, it's always a put off to see talk of what you won't be getting in a game before it is even out though I guess as it is 2-3 months after the game is released it is far less objectionable than most.
Free for everyone who pre-orders, I'm fine by that.
60-90 days after game release, not day 1 DLC.
What are you guys complaining about.
It's not free for only who pre-ordered. It's free for everyone.
I like this idea. The DLC is slated for much after the game release and it is involving content they probably cannot fit in to the development schedule accordingly. It just means more content for us after everyone has played through the campaign. It is hard to expect free DLC anymore, so my expectations regarding that are pretty much out the window now.
And besides, I loved all of Borderlands' DLC. General Knoxx added so much to the game. They will more than likely do well with this.
here's what we're gonna cut out of the game to sell later!
Stop complaining. Gearbox knows what there doing. If you read there other stories you would know that we have nothing to worry about.
Dlc and the game isn't even out yet...next they will give us the option to preorder the dlc.
I need to learn to read I do.
The DLC is going to be free.
They said in a video of the concept art for the new class, is that one of the devs JUST gave the idea for a new class and gave them concept art, so they still have to record all the lines, make the skill trees, and models for it.
Wait where the hell is that screenshot from in the OP?
Loving the massive amount of illiteracy in this thread.
It's amazing. People thought this was the shit yesterday.
Now people think it's just shit.
Honestly, I'm preordering the game anyway so I'll be getting it free.
How about putting this in the actual game you arseholes.
It's nice that it's free, but shouldn't this be included already in the game, from the get go?
Or do they add on as they go? Cause that'd keep Borderlands more alive..
I should have expected a load of angry comments from people who didn't even read the article.
I won't preorder, thus it's not free. Yay.
As long as they don't do some stupid shit like release weapon DLC (on a game with millions of guns), this is looking to be pretty damn perfect.
This shit only happens because everyone started to buy pre-order DLC.
mordecai looks so old :(
