Turtle Rock Studios has pretty much laid out how they will handle DLC content for Evolve, which will be released on February 10th. Creative Director Phill Robb took to to explain future content and how the what happens if you don’t own any DLC.

When the game ships initially, twelve unique maps, twelve hunters and three monsters will be included on the game disc and playable. If you pre-ordered the game, the Monster Expansion Pack will also be made available to you, where you’ll be able to play with the Behemoth monster, who was named in a fan poll run by Turtle Rock Studios.

All future maps for Evolve will be free for everybody, which is great. In addition, players will not be booted from a game if they do not have updated DLC content. For instance, if you join a game where everybody else has purchased the newest hunters and monsters, you will still be able to play that match without any interruptions or hindrances, a feature that should be implemented in every game.

Also announced is the Evolve Hunting Season Pass for $24.99. Four new Hunter characters (one from each class) as well as Monster skins will be made available. The pass includes about $30 worth of content if purchased individually. The Monster skins are available on day one and the Hunter characters will be released over time. If you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition for $79.99, everything mentioned in this post is included.

Fans have already expressed their displeasure with day one DLC even though Turtle Rock Studios has done everything they can to ensure you can still play the full game without any additional content. What do you all think of Turtle Rock Studios’ future plans for the game? The potential for future Monsters and Hunters is great and am really looking forward to Evolve. To read the full blog post check out the Evolve website.
