All of Starhawk's
future downloadable map packs will be free, Dylan Jobe, president of Lightbox Interactive, has announced. Writing on PlayStation Blog
, Jobe noted that the paid downloadable content divided the Warhawk
community with every expansion, and "after we released three expansions, our player community was pretty fractured."
Lightbox hopes to remedy that this time around by making all map packs free. Jobe added that there is still paid DLC in the works, though Lightbox is "still playing around with what that will be." The studio is already working on the first map pack, which will include the planet Cypress, pictured in the early concept art above.
