Steam Starts Offering In Game DLC

Valve announced the arrival of in-game downloadable content to Steam, their massively popular PC gaming platform. In-game DLC allows developers and publishers to use their own games as a platform for selling additional content to gamers.

The first game to take advantage of this new in-game DLC capability is The Maw, by Twisted Pixel Games. Their first DLC releases are levels entitled The Maw: Brute Force and The Maw: River Redirect. Each DLC level expands The Maw storyline by fitting in-between the original levels as "deleted scenes."

DLC can now be added to any game on Steam, regardless of whether it was originally purchased via Steam, at retail, or via other digital outlets. It is also a feature of Steamworks, the suite of free tools and services available to game developers and publishers.

Steam Starts Offering In Game DLC

Downloadable content? like those Battlefield mini expansions? Road To rome? The secret weapons of WW2? some map packs of BF2? haha.. Im sure many people will skip these kind of s**t, and that gamers will not have to pay for developers mistakes. Either you delay the game for more content, or you release an expansion with alot more content, but do not expect us to buy expansions which don't add much to the game. I personally think that Generals Zero Hour was a nice expansion, but Kane's Wrath sucks.
