Evolve has one of the most controversial approaches to DLC in recent memory, but Turtle Rock seems intent on supporting the game properly, and on providing some proper post launch support. Which might be why they have taken to their forums to tease the first set of DLC that they are planning on releasing… all of which will be free.
Speaking of the new DLC, Turtle Rock seemed to have some big plans for the game.
“We do have new maps incoming, which will plug into Evacuation mode with their own map effects, observer mode so a sixth player can spectate both teams, ranked play for more competitive gamers and hopefully an all new game mode, all for free in the future,” they said, teasing just some of the things they have lined up.
“The new maps are also beautiful and really different. The new game mode is still early but the initial response has been very positive. Observer mode is going to be a nice addition too.”
Finally, they discussed post launch balance adjustments as well:
“We are working on the first balance update now and I’m sure it’ll be the focus of some controversy but I know everyone will be excited to dig in and see how the game changes with update.”
Sounds like they are trying their best to do right by the community (which lends credence to their assertion earlier that 2K, and not Turtle Rock, is to be blamed for the abusive DLC policy), so props to them.
