During BioWare’s PAX West panel for the studio’s upcoming multiplayer online game Anthem, the studio announced that all of Anthem’s story-driven DLC released post-launch will be free for everyone.
While the studio didn’t offer any other details on what Anthem’s post-launch DLC will bring to the table, the fact that it emphasized on the term story hints that there will be some other form of DLC, though that one will most likely be paid. Given how customizable the Javelins (the mechs players jump into) are, it’s not a stretch to guess that some of the paid DLC will involve cosmetics of some kind.
Anthem game publisher EA has been pushing for non-player fracturing ways releasing DLC and mcirotransactions, which was seen in EA-published games like Titanfall 2, Star Wars Battlefront II, and in the upcoming Battlefield V.
In other Anthem news, it’s been revealed recently by BioWare that the dialogue options in Anthem will only consist of two choices. The demo date has been announced too along with a new trailer showcasing the game’s world and story.
This is definitely good news, no? Given how the game relies heavily in online co-op multiplayer, this is one sure-fire way to make sure that players don’t get split up whenever a new expansion drops.
