Angel City looks intense. I never got to play T1, glad I'll get to experience that vertical map design I keep hearing about.
I remember this was the one and only trailer that immediately sold me on the game. Really happy that the experience ended up being as advertised.
In addition to the free stuff, we will be opening a store in game with the launch of DLC #1 that will allow you to purchase new skins, camo and Prime Titans if you want for a modest price. We will have no in-game currency exchange. No locked loot boxes, crafting shards or pay-to-win weaponry. No RNG. If you see something you like, you buy it and thats it.
This is it. This is how you do dlc.
(now they will proceed to make millions less than games selling gambling crates)
Locking people out of a map when the PC numbers are already pretty low seems silly. I even preordered the game, I just got screwed out of the bonus by the retailer I got it from.
I forgot about the preorder incentive and actually, I never received a code either... wtf
Respawn, I know you're reading these comments... help us out!
Although i agree it should be made available to everyone. Literally no reason at this point to only open it up to those who received a code. Player count is already small, just give everyone day 1 access to the map.
Read the thread man. Everyone will get the map.

I picked this game as my one FPS to buy this year and it was because of their philosophy about DLC. I don't want to have to spend $120 to get the "Full Game" with a season pass or some shit.
Do you think it is possible that EA punished Respawn and their free DLC offering with the terrible release window? Seems pretty shortsighted if so but I just can't figure out any other reason they would send it off to die the way they did.
Personally I think the free DLC will be this game's saving grace in the long run and it will help the community continue to grow.
Won't you be splitting between the people that have the map and those that don't, even if it's only for 3 days?
Also do deluxe edition buyers get early access to the map?
