I’ve been reading news about the game, and so far on the forum and I’ve seen talk about the information that Conan will win a new map, and he will be paid.
I agree with that, I always found the game’s DLCs a bit “useless”, although I bought all of them to “help” the game I like so much, but I ALWAYS thought that I was given very little thanks and with that I found the strategy of very “lazy” DLCs from the developers, but bought it.
As I said several times I also play ARK and also bought all ARK DLCs, which are just whole new maps, and there I always found it valid, attractive and a great deal to buy DLCs, I never felt buying DLC just for " help 'in ARK as I felt in Conan, and look that I like Conan much more than ARK, even with the super limitations of the game.
I see with great eyes the funcom thinking about starting to develop real DLCs, that really add to the game, that expands the game for those who want to invest in it, I am not understanding these comments from people of wanting the new free map, the world games doesn’t work like that, in any company, and I also agree that you need a constant investment from those who play a game for 3 years, I agree to pay, and I think it’s fair, BUT it will depend on what I get in return.
The main question now comes, when I buy new maps in ARK I really get incredible work, incredible maps, incredible new creatures, and even graphics, programming improvements … everything is very worthwhile very rewarding, we still don’t know how much funcom will work on this new map, which would be the 1st DLC of its kind, I hope that first of many everything goes well!
So that’s the question, what will be the quality of this new map ?, how many news will there be ?, there will be a transition from NPCs from the old to the new map, because I would not be interested in the new map if I could not travel with my NPC there and even bringing “new ones assuming I have” to my base on the official map, just like we all do in ARK, I don’t believe that a new map totally parallel to the official map would work, the “map room” is there to transport us to obelisks from the new map, use it.
This first experience will be crucial for you, don’t disappoint, you won’t have another chance to sell us a next map if it’s really not worth it, I like funcom’s work a lot, I really identify myself in this as in no other, but many Sometimes I get “irritated” with things like “water” Conan’s water is ridiculous, the game is beautiful and with this PS3 graphics water, the game water and coconut trees totally distort the graphic quality of the game.
Well that’s it I will follow anxious news on the subject, I hope I will not be disappointed, I hope you will use this to really grow, evolve and improve, I will give the first chance and I hope I will not regret it!
