"We’re going to release maps packs and additional maps for free so players don’t end up in a situation where they have a map pack and their friend doesn’t and then they can’t play together. Everyone is going to have the same maps."

 

I'd assume paid DLC will all be armor and weapons (there's still the Season Pass in the Collector's Edition, that has to be worth something).

That's very great news, I hated that about other games if you don't have the Map Packs you can't play at all on the maps. I hate paying for extra crap that should already be on the disk so I'm glad they are going with this also I have the "CE" just to skip this problem lol

I Hope So, This Would Set The Example To Other Future First Party Developers About The Importance Of Future Add-On Content To The SP .

 

Except QuanticDream Since They Did Do A SP DLC For Heavy Rain .

What about Gearbox Stripes? They have expansions for BL. Well to be fair that whole game is SP and MP at the same time lol.

Ahhh free maps this is good for the gamers. Now I don't feel bad about not being able to secure the CE.  I didn't need the statue/soundtrack/case and I'm getting armor and wepon dlc from pre-order and Rise of the Warrior. So I'm not worried about missing out on much for now.

i think we're all happy about this one.  Tomb Raider that just came out on Tuesday is a prime example of why something like this is needed.  As a special pre-order from GS you got the "Shanty Town" map for use in Free for All mode and lots of people don't have it, so if that map is voted in, good bye everyone else.  That's just not fun for us gamers, we should never be restricted to playing with our friends because of add-on content.  SSM did a great thing with this.

 

Also, Tomb Raider online isn't as bad as people were claiming IMO.  It's pretty satisfying to hunt someone down with a bow and arrow as opposed to running around and just holding the button down with a machine gun like most online MP games.  Of course, once GOW comes out next week nothing else will really matter Smiley Happy

Yep.  You have two different factions to choose from, Survivors and Solarii, both of which have female characters.  You unock characters as you level up, so most aren't available to you when you first sart it up.

 

Dreissa from this forum was actually on my team last night, and yeah, she's a female character lol.
