    That DLC makes it sound like you have to pay double for a "complete" game, you're going to be fairly restricted without it.

    It's completely normal these days to release unfinished games and charge another 60 bucks for things that were already in the game on release day but not unlocked. Personally not gonna pay more than 10 for this. Don't care if I'm late to the party then. It's just Doom, not gonna be game of the anything.

    Re: Doom open beta and three premium DLC packs detailed

    Agreed. I don't mind some DLC like the stuff for Fallout that gives a decent amount of additional gameplay that doesn't particularly affect the core game, or Rocket league where all of the DLC so far has been cosmetic and doesn't affect the gameplay whatsoever if you choose not to purchase it.

    But when you have to pay to access game modes that really should be standard, or keep up with weapons other players will have because they paid more, the appeal soon wears off.

    Might give the beta a spin if it's not huge to download, but Bethesda have just doomed the moths in my wallet to an even longer sentence. Cruel.

    All of that DLC should be released 6-12 months after initial release in single release with price tag 10-15 quid. Paying 12 quid to get one new weapon?! DD

    Not buying DLC for any FPS ever again. Mostly because half the people won't buy it and it divides the player base. Look at Battlefield... original maps and non DLC are the most popular.
