and for the record, the game is fun, it's actually really fun. white-knuckles uber tense kinda fun. it just doesn't have much content. but who knows. some people love games with no content, DOTA for example is one map, literally one map. and it has millions of players. they're not charging $70 CDN however, and trying to squeeze more out of the players.

if anything these guys should go F2P, and sell the extra monster for $10. they'd probably make a shit ton more money. difference between selling a few hundred thousand copies, or having XX million players for years to come, who will throw money at it. works for world of tanks.

I don't think there is one person that visits here that has bought this game or thinks it will be successful. I can't imagine there is more than 8 hours of gameplay in this game.....what a joke.

Having to rely on pubs to play the game? Tank. On PC? Tank harder. At that price point? You won't even sell enough copies to break even.

Well said! I'll never understand why companies in most fields don't realize that making a product that's better than the competition is the key to long term growth and sustainability. This approach obviously includes improving on what was done in the past. Dedicated server clients, LAN support,server browser, mod tools etc... UT99 had better stats system than most games since and the mod support seemed really good. Make something unreal contest and have the top maps in a free official map pack. Connect to a server and you don't have the next map in the rotation, you're given the option to download and install without leaving the game.

I'll end my rant with this other rant lol... stop marketing games like were grade school kids attracted to bright colors! Grad school kids root cell phones and almost everyone researches specs to buy d@mn phones. Consumers are the most tech savvy ever, they research and read before spending $. The disappearing middle class can't and won't support companies like this unless the absolutely have to do so.

I simply will not buy a game that comes out with DLC already made.

It's tucking money grasping, not a desire to make a good/better game, and I'm not going to support it. Was somewhat interested in this game before, now it's off the list.

Sounds like 2K is banking HARD on the hype behind the "next big MP experience from creators of Left 4 Dead."

I never was terribly interested, and all they're doing with each announcement like this is turning me off further. I'm practically inverted by this point.

2K and Turtle Cock can suck it with these prices. $15 for a new monster? Hahahaha. They lost me with a full price of $70 CDN. This just makes it far worse.

Hard to get excited about the prospects of this game when you hear about season pass and dlc details like this. Also the game looks like it has too much consolitis. We shall see in the upcoming betas.

Remember don't preorder and don't buy day 1. Wait and see.

More money? Wow they must think they are sitting on something big.

Or they know they have to get their money before the shiny wears off.

There are other titles similar to this one, on a lower budget of course, and honestly this style of gameplay gets boring quick. Try out Primal Carnage on Steam to get an idea or even Depth.

The most fun I've had with this style of gameplay was Giants Citizen Kabuto but it had so much going for it including a fun as hell single player.

$60 for a PC mp game with no single player.

$25 for 4 characters and a few skins.

$15 for 1 monster.

The greed is strong with this one.

Sounds like desperation. Pre-order sales must be sucking bad so they are trying to up the ante to get people to chalk over more money by claiming additional crap is worth all the extra $$$ to preorder.

Not looking good at all.
I too hope they fail miserably because this is getting out of control these days and this takes it to that next level with this type of shiieeet.

Fuck this. I can't stand all the day one DLC, preorder bonuses, deluxe editions, season pass bullshit that comes with so many AAA games these days! Just give us one price and give us all the damn content(in other words be like CD Projekt Red).

"The Evolve PC Monster Race Edition contains $131.88 of content for $99.99"

Apparently we have very different definitions for values of things.

It was bad enough when the season pass concept was introduced. Now there's a Deluxe Super Turbo season pass on top of that? Are we really going this way now? Christ.

I really want to like this game, but you're making this extremely hard, 2K.

All of this DLC is not a good move.
