Evolve DLC Maps to be Free

Turtle Rock are going to be extremely generous with Evolve’s DLC. The developer says that all of the DLC maps will be released for free. But wait, there's more! In addition to this, you will also be able to play alongside the DLC characters and monsters that your friends have purchased, so there’ll be no issues between players. 

First thing we said was we can’t break the community up, so all of our maps will be free. We never want anyone to get booted off of a server because they haven’t bought something.

We’ll have characters and monsters, and even if you don’t buy them, if your buddy wants to buy the DLC, that’s cool, and your game will be enhanced through his purchase. So, you won’t be able to play as those characters, but you will certainly be able to play with those characters.

This is a genuinely refreshing approach to gaming and DLC. I'm glad to see player equality becoming a more important business model for game developers.
