One of the many things an average gamer hates is paying for a full title and then having to shell out even more for the game's added DLC content. At times it seems justified, depending on the game, but mostly, a number of players aren't really convinced that some games require them to spend a lot for a full experience.
Talking about costly games and even costlier DLCs, Destiny's upcoming third expansion pack, The Taken King, is worth $40. According to community manager Eric "Urk" Osborne, the price for the new DLC is justified.
Recently, via IGN's Fireteam Chat podcast, Osborne explained why he thinks The Taken King is worth $40, double the price of each of the first two expansions, The Dark Below and House of Wolves.
"You've got a full campaign, [and] I think people are going to enjoy the cinematics, the characters, the missions," said Osborne.
"We're taking you to the Dreadnaught, to Phobos, up into colony ships. Nathan Fillion [Firefly, Halo 3: ODST] is talking to you, Lance Reddick [The Wire, Fringe] is talking to you, it's good stuff."
"I don't have any trouble saying that The Taken King is well more than twice as much content as The Dark Below. The story's great, there's seven Crucible multiplayer maps, there's three brand-new Strikes, and they're the best Strikes we've delivered to date.
"We've got the Dreadnaught, which is not just a big new destination to explore, it's really deep and layered, there's tons of little secrets and things you can collect... [and] riddles and clues and stories and quests and quest logs and more guns and more gear and exotics.
"We've got three revised Strikes that are existing [Destiny Year One] Strikes but with the Taken infused in them to change them up for the first time. We've got the [King's Fall] Raid, we've got a bunch of stuff we aren't talking about but will about our in-game content," he said.
Destiny's The Taken King Expansion is set for a release on 15 September, 2015.
