I know some people are on the fence about DLC, especially when there aren’t any placeables involved. I could imagine several placeables for the DLC packs that didn’t include any, and that sparked an idea…
What if, to make DLC more appealing and give a greater incentive for people to pick them up even after they have decided on which ones they may not want, Funcom included new content for past DLC in some of their ongoing updates?
Like this rumored (mostly confirmed) Turan DLC - what if in addition to what’s being sold in that DLC pack, the update also includes some Pictish placeables, or a few more Khitan parts, for anyone who has purchased those DLC packs? This would give more value to a purchase you have already made, and instill confidence in people who were/are on the fence about buying DLC to begin with.
I don’t think it can be argued that the idea that DLC you purchase will have content added to it later makes that DLC way more desirable, it’s really more a matter of whether Funcom sees that as a legitimate strategy to get more people to part with their money.
My opinion on this doesn’t mean much because I buy this stuff the second it’s available, but maybe people who haven’t purchased DLC, or haven’t purchased all the DLC, could weigh in?
