All Future Starhawk Map Packs will be free

by | @AttackFanboy | on May 9, 2012

The PlayStation exclusive Starhawk was released yesterday, and by most accounts, its a great game with an impressive multiplayer component. The tower defense style gameplay is definitely unique, and unlike anything else on the market today. LightBox is also taking a unique approach in the way it handles downloadable content. It’s going to be free. Go figure.

“There was alot of discussion here at LightBox Interactive and Sony Santa Monica on how best to support the community and keep our player base all together as one cohesive group,” LightBox’s Dylan Jobe said on the PlayStation Blog. “We really didn’t like how in Warhawk when we released a new map pack, it forced these divisions on our players. And after we released three expansions, our player community was pretty fractured.”

“With Starhawk that ends! We are incredibly excited to announced that all map packs for Starhawk will be free. Yeah, you read that right…FREE. Whenever we release a map pack you won’t have to pay a friggin dime!”

LightBox already has content on the way according to Jobe. Map Pack #1 will feature the planet Cypress, the home of an abandoned Rift engery research facity. There will be some premium DLC that’s set to arrive for Starhawk, but it won’t be for multiplayer more than likely.

“Now certainly we’ll have some paid DLC content in the future as well as our free map packs, but we’re still playing around with what that will be. We’re going to be looking to see what the player feedback is on Starhawk in the coming weeks to help steer the DLC that we develop for you all.”
