Yes, DLC is something good. Even if they are charged, it may be something good because developers must eventually be paid for their work. That DLC still enjoy a possible bad reputation, especially EA, Activision and Capcom is due to. All three are known to DLC are squandered without much added value such as sand in the desert at exorbitant prices, the contents were kept out of the game in order to sell as an extra or already shaped frame future DLC on the disc. The recently published racing game Need for Speed, however, waive any paid extras. And there is a good reason!

So has the need for speed studio Ghost Games commented several times to the fact that the arcade racer, though it is an EA game, neither paid nor DLC microtransactions will contain. An announcement that caused a surprise and disbelief. But creative director Craig Sullivan stands by this statement, and not only provides good reasons for the decision but also a promise.

The reason for this was mentioned that the studio have listened to the fans. "Everything we do is to focus on what the fans want," said Sullivan. "They do not say: Can you create a bunch of stuff and let us pay for it? And because they do not say that, we do not do that too.

It can not be said with absolute certainty that EA does not at some point asks microtransactions. But at the moment there are absolutely no plans. It would not even be possible, so easy to install such a system, as Need for Speed ​​has no Store. It must first manufactures a comprehensive makeover to change that fact. "I can not look into the future 10 years. All I can say is honestly, with hand on heart that we have absolutely no plans to sue you for additional content in Need for Speed. We will give you everything for free.

therefore remains to be seen whether this will change in circumstance in the next 10 years something. Need for Speed ​​is not what is at least refrain from micro-transactions, the only current EA game. Even the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront will do without, even if it will instead be paid DLC.
