Bungie: The Taken King's $40 Price Tag Is More Than Justified
It's a very common question: Is a piece of downloadable content worth the money?
And when an expansion costs $40, as is the case with the upcoming Destiny DLC The Taken King, it's an even bigger concern, so Bungie community manager Eric "Urk" Osborne addressed this topic in a recent IGN podcast.
In response to the fact that the last two expansions cost $20 each, Osborne says the included content justifies the price tag:
"You've got a full campaign, [and] I think people are going to enjoy the cinematics, the characters, the missions. We're taking you to the Dreadnaught, to Phobos, up into colony ships. Nathan Fillion [Firefly, Halo 3: ODST] is talking to you, Lance Reddick [The Wire] is talking to you, it's good stuff.
I don't have any trouble saying that The Taken King is well more than twice as much content as the Dark Below. The story's great, there's seven Crucible multiplayer maps, there's three brand-new Strikes, and they're the best Strikes we've delivered to date..."
He went on to mention the Dreadnaught, which Bungie recently revealed as a huge new location, along with three revised Strikes. We will also get weapon balancing and all told, the developer claims this is kinda like buying a whole new game.
The Taken King launches on September 15; are you considering that cool PlayStation 4 bundle?
