Starhawk all DLC map packs will be released for free
A move to avoid community splitting.
We have received an announcement from LightBox Interactive confirming that all map packs for Starhawk will be released for free. Quite an unexpected, yet a pleasing revelation in itself, but the word was accompanied with a reasonable explanation from developer LightBox.
“There was a lot 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 president Dylan Jobe wrote 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!”
So that means gamers who purchased the game can look forward to having all present and future map pack goodness completely free. That’s not all, Jobe confirmed that work on the first add-on map pack has already started; the setting is planet Cypress, a “lush, swampy world that’s home to an abandoned research facility that many years ago was responsible for researching the mysteries of Rift Energy.”
Cypress has no release date, but we have a teaser image posted down below.
