$20 DLC for Dust 514

8 replies 392 views Edited Feb 19, 2013
The game is still in Beta, why would they charge $20 for a DLC on an unfinished (and unstable) game. Beta state programs can crash at any time. Why charge for an update on the beta when it should come as a required update since the game isn't finished yet

The $20 Dust 514 DLC is not an update to the game. It is a "micro transaction" content pack that includes a dropsuit, several guns, sp booster and a bunch of Aurum (in game premium currency).

 

All DLC purchased durring the Beta phase will carry over to the full game.

Its not an update but an optional purchase you can make.  If you are DEFINATELY going to play DUST during retail I'd say the 20 bucks for the merc pac is worth it.


They will re-give it to you once the game hits retail.

I bought it!  

But I also have over 100 clanmates already in the beta and will definately play upon retail (plus i got it the week it was on sale :smileytongue:).    I am definately playing upon launch so buying it was fine with me.

I also bought it! The Merc pack (especially considering it comes with a 30 day booster and Aurum) is a great deal. The Starter Pack however, in my opinion, is overpriced and should have been priced at around $3.99. Anyway, I got the Starter Pack free with PlayStation Plus, soo..

 

Also, the game does have a point. In New Eden, the point is to aquire wealth, power, or pretty much whatever you like doing. It's your destiny to choose. By joining a Corporation, you may start a career as a Merc. Forge alliances with other Mercs/Corporations, and that's how you will see an impact on New Eden.

 

Also, DUST has deep customization and skillsets to unlock, and in my opinion, the game does have a point to it.
