New DLC not free after buying “Complete Edition” of the game

14 posts in this topic

Anyone knows if this is intentional? Why did they even release a complete edition if they were gonna add a new DLC. And the complete edition has also disappeared from the store.

Guess it is just up the the developers.  Early reviews aren't too positive for the DLC, so maybe it isn't too big of a loss.

It is intentional. Complete edition only comes with the first DLC. I believe there's an augmented edition or something like that now that contains both DLCs.

They will release the Augmented Edition on the 16th October with all the DLC.

Here's an idea.

Boycot it and dont buy it, what they are doing is unacceptable!

Isn't it a bit late for new DLC when they've got The Surge 2 coming in 2019?

They or at least marketing called it that to make it simple/easy to understand and then they created a new expansion sometime later.

If you actually play the DLC and think about this rationally, it stands to reason they did not intend to make The Good, The Bad and The Augmented when they came up with this. Part of the reason why reviews are so low is how small the actual content is. If you take a step back, there are about five maps, three new sets of armor (bunch of vanity), five weapons, a small bit of story, some extra dialogue and a couple modifiers.

 

Most of the content is actually just reskins or shuffling. Like, there are only three bosses that are used repeatedly across nine stages, with each boss just having a different colored/looking version of the basic armor set and a couple unique weapons. Vanity weapons are just the boss/normal weapon colored gold. While I don't think the expansion was made over a weekend, I'd be hard pressed to believe they were thinking about it back in December when the complete edition released.

To be fair, I'm willing to bet most people weren't going to buy it regardless. That being said, I still stand by the whole argument is kind of silly. Like I've said before, the stance is less "the wording is deceptive" and more "I'm mad there is now an even more complete version I should've waited for." I won't disagree with the choice of wording being poor, but I don't think this suddenly wouldn't be an issue if it was "Creoland" edition, just fewer people would express it because it sounds more entitled when it goes from an assumption to them using a word that implies the aforementioned assumption.

I guess. I think they just wanted to try to get a couple extra bucks to work on The Surge 2 but is it ever too late? Outside of releasing after the sequel.

More like "Complete But Not Really Edition"

 

That is a long way to go for a joke that could've been "More like The Surge: Incomplete Edition."

As I prefaced my comment before, "Guess it is just up the the developers".

 

Whether the DLC is great, terrible or incomplete, they can throw it out there and see if players bite and buy it.

It was removed from the stores as soon as the DLC was announced so people wouldn't purchase it thinking it included the 2nd expansion pack as the subtitle "complete" was no longer accurate.
