Ok with all the drama with DLC and having to buy it would it be a terrible decision to make DLC buyable with some in game currency along with other stuff of course. You can always buy the DLC with real money for faster payment, but could Evolve make enough money from DLC with in game currency as well? SMITE, League of Legends, and other f2p games do this so is it possible to make this available in Evolve as well?
I would love to here from a developer on this issue. I think the biggest argument is that the revenue from the DLC would not be enough to justify having you be able to buy it with in game currency. You could obviously also make skins for monsters and hunters to boost sales just a thought.

Some people are mad because they think they have to spend 100 bucks to get something good out of the game. And that’s a fair argument they already spent 60 bucks straight up for the game they don’t feel like they need to pay more to enjoy it. Even without the DLC the game will be amazing, but the developers want to keep the game running for as long as they can because they love the game and love playing it. They want to make sure people want to play it for a long time. Without DLC the game can get boring after awhile, to keep people playing you need updates to the game more hunters and monsters is a good step. But they also need to keep making money of course so there comes a thin line that is hard to cross. On one side you make DLC buyable with real money but also free if you really want it, with this decision you lose money slightly obviously. But on the plus side you make sure your playerbase is here to stay for a longer time. Now the other option is to make DLC only buyable this option will make you more money in the short term, but may turn off other people in your playerbase because they don’t want to buy anymore.
It comes done to can you still make enough money off DLC with it being free as well, and if you can you always should to keep a healthy playerbase coming back for more.
