Evolve's DLC maps will be free for everyone

  • Published in Shooter news

Turtle Rock Studios has confirmed that Evolve's DLC maps will be free for everyone.

Studio Creative Director Phil Robb has confirmed that to IGN, stating "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".

While the maps will be free, players will pay for additional DLC characters and monsters. However, the good news here is that you can play alongside the new hunters and creatures, even if you don't own them yourself.

"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," he added. "So, you won't be able to play as those characters, but you will certainly be able to play with those characters."

This seems to be a completely sensible approach to DLC in a multiplayer FPS. Evolve is going to have an Xbox One Beta exclusive launch in January, ahead of the official release on February 10, 2015.
