Honestly it depends on what/how much content is in the battle pass but that being said, I’m guessing it will probably be around $10 or so.
Here's the thing you fail to realize... every player they get.. BUYS DLC.. And guess what..?
75,044 Players on steam. Maybe more on Console, On Switch, On Mobile.
So if we get the same Numbers on Console Steam Switch and Mobile Combined... GUESS HOW MUCH THEY EARN PER PERSON if they buy the game and ALL DLC:
$75,044+$75,044+$75,044+$75,044+$75,044 = 375,220 US$ In the $1 Battlepass Alone.
Which for a Company... is ALOT.
Because Guess what if you can make that much from $1 Guess how much you make from $200 worth of DLC. Also Nice Pound Symbols. Change those prices to USD ;) Since all my calculations are based on USD.
So... If there are about 375,220 on each Version (Includes Mobile & Switch since it will obviously have a player base)
375,220 x $200 = 75.04400 million US$
Want to see how big 75.04400 Million is in USD?
Now... Obviously the company takes about a 75 % take.
So the Company Takes: about $56,283,000 (BeHAVIOUR)
That Leaves about $18,761,000 for All Employees and also includes a way to get taxed.
So yes I took a business class. That's why you laugh because you can't say anything and you just wanted me to prove you wrong that's why you wrote it in a toxic response.
Also 75,044 isn't exaggerated. it's legit the Peak Players on Steam. All the players who played on the weekend doesn't matter if The peak doesn't change.
Every 3 Months? so that means they earn about... $375,220 every month (Once the Mobile & Switch Versions come out as well) Which means $375,220 x 4 = 1,500,880
So... about $1,500,880 Per year per Player on all Platforms (Including Switch and Mobile when they release)
So lets do the calculations again since this price is smaller they might take a smaller take maybe... 15%
15% of $1,500,880 = $225,132 for BeHAVIOUR
Which Means... $1,275,748 The Staff Gets this Per Year per Battlepass.
And these are estimations because I don't work at BeHAVIOUR so I don't know the real Numbers. But you assuming I don't know what I'm talking about is Hilarious.
They still will make more money than most Gamestop workers or most 7-11 Workers or hell even 911 Dispatchers might make.
That's why I said i would be fine with a $1 price because it's still a fair amount especially with the ongoing playerbase that's why Mobile would be successful because all they have to do is charge $1 per Battlepass, and literally everyone can afford it which earns them more money. And if you miss out on something in the battlepass it doesn't feel like you wasted $15 on nothing because you couldn't play. But if you just waste $1 then you could just be happy you could just spend ONLY $1 so in reality it is the smartest business move.
Also this is my last Point on the cause. Cause tbh, I simply Don't care anymore. So believe what you wish. -shrugs-
Do you guys even watchted anniversary stream? It was even said this is gonna be unlockable by playtime.
That's always good.
What isn't good is putting an exaggarated price on it and say it's fine cause you can also unlock it normally.
Plus a high price will just result in less buyers.
This is a thread they should read. Personally I dont see any reason it should be more than £10. Even 10 seems a bit much.
What I've been trying to say the entire time.
Like $1 would be perfect so if you don't want to keep playing and miss out on anything you either wasted $1 or 30mins of Playtime And if you did spend $1 it would still help the company.
SO you @Boss and @Ksoni are both correct as well as I am.
I'm not against free cosmetics or a way to get em faster I just think it should be cheap and accessible to all players. Poor, medium, & Rich. i just don't want to pay $15 and forget about the Battlepass and then come back after playing Battlefront or CoD for 4 Months and feel like i wasted $15 that would honestly make me want a refund for the $15 but if it's $1 I'd be like "Welp it's just a dollar!" *Buys this Months pass*
So i think $1 or $1.99 should be a reasonable price and maybe after 5 Challenges we get a free Battlepass (The paid Side).
since it is going to give us multiple cosmetic sets and be available for around 3 months (i think), i would say a price between 5$ to 10$ would be a good idea.
i would definitely not pay anything if the price was around 20$. thats the price of the whole freakin game, i aint paying that ON TOP just for a battlepass!
You are absolutely clueless on this entire subject.
Studied business, lmao.
$30 would be my limit. A season is supposedly 3 months so $10 a month.
For me it's a very simple question. IF disconnecting people will start getting banned, I'll pay up to $20, even $25. Don't care much about cosmetics, but I'd be happy to support BHVR so that they can continue improving and fixing the game.
But if the new system for punishing DC-s is still going to be a joke, not a cent.
@Micheal_Myers you're an idiot. You talk like companies making money is a bad thing. Jesus. You some kind of Commie?
Not to mention he thinks the game + dlc = 200$? Lmao he could literally go onto steam right now, add it all to his basket and see it's 101$.
His game seems to be to make BHVR look as bad as possible for no apparent reason.
Hm... @SenzuDuck , he probably works for EA. Or Epic. Hm, maybe Facepunch?
$5-15 if it's for three months and we get a constant stream of cosmetics that aren't available otherwise.
Zero. I will literally never buy it.
Like I said All my Numbers are estimations and, Steam has different prices because of Steam Summer Sale which is obviously on going.
And Never ONCE did I say Devs making money is bad.
I said it is idiotic to make a small bit of code $15.
I said they would still make their money if it was $1.
So if I am an Idiot for making Logical Estimations then so be it.
You both don't have to be super toxic about it.
All I did was put estimations of everything. You being extremely toxic about someone trying to spread logic and reason on a thread by using Estimations should be looked at by a Moderator like @Peanits , because you calling me an Idiot is extremely toxic and uncivil on a forum that obviously says "What is your Reasonable Price" and obviously in all my posts I put estimations together to make a reasonable argument based on my business knowledge.
I EVEN Stated that a $1 Transaction on mobile could be a great business decision. Since Thousands of players would try out the Mobile Version. And a battlepass could start that.
And like I stated in my last post don't be toxic because It is MY OPINION. and You have yours. You obviously won't change my opinion because I obviously put logic and reasoning in mine.
All you said was a Screen shot of DLC that is probably on the Steam Summer Sale. That was your logic POV.
And in the next post I made replying to that I explained why your points are soooo Wrong.
Because logically $1 (Like a McDonalds Value Menu) would bring in more people and more money especially if there is word that a Battlepass is in this game which is a GREAT business decision.
I never wanted to start a fight but obviously you guys can't make a reasonable civil discussion without calling me names and/or being toxic towards me because you are used to the " $15 Fortnite Battlepass "
And tbh I want to encourage the devs to make each pass 1 Month each so they can get more money from the dollar heck I even stated they could make it $1.99 so they can tax your transaction and make even more money which helps the company and The Devs.
My point short: Don't be toxic on the internet, Provide accurate Logical and reasonable numbers of why it should be... (Insert Price Here), Have a CIVIL CONVERSATION.
So I don't have to ask Peantis to read your comments that are obviously are toxic and targeting me for me voicing my own opinion on the matter.
When you pay for a cosmetic you are not paying for a "small bit of code." They have to pay their employees, you know? They have to run a business. And then they need to make a profit.
I'm not saying the cosmetics prices are reasonable, but it's disingenuous to say "$15 for a small bit of code." That's like going to a restaurant and complaining that you could make the same meal at home for half the price.
Thanks for being less Toxic than the Other 2.
I was currently frustrated when I wrote that post. I don't like being called out even tho I clearly stated it was an estimation and was a great business decision. I just voiced my opinion and they started to be toxic towards me even tho I provided numbers.
So I understand that they have to make a profit, and pay the Devs. But I think $1 or even $1.99 would still make them fairly alot. and would make alot of profit since every person who bought it either spends $1 or about $2.34 which could make them a fair alot.
So thanks for being civil on the matter.
EDIT: It makes them probably more than the rest of us tbh.
I'm personally unlikely to bother with it unless there's more in play then cosmetics. As for cost, I'd be surprised if it was more then $10. They know this isn't a really popular idea. Making it too expensive will kill any chance they have of making it work.
I honestly can't take you seriously, how can someone try so hard to appear smart yet get everything wrong?
Not a single thing is on sale right now for Dead By Daylight, the entire price, all DLC + Game = £79. Converting that (Which you told me too, despite me already converting it last time is 101$). You're literally doubling the price of everything for no other reason but to push your own agenda that the game "costs too much".
Not only that but you're also LATE to the game, you aren't forced to pay for any of the content to play it, and all original characters can be earned through play time, something new players will find out very quickly.
ADDITIONALLY - The numbers for the player base over this weekend were VERY HEAVILY INFLATED DUE TO IT BEING FREE FOR A WEEKEND.
Oh look, we're back to 22K people playing, funny how the game being free to play for a weekend triples the player base. But of course, Mr Business Major Michael seems to think that's irrelevant. I'd say 99% of people don't buy DLC for games they can only play for 3 days.
Your estimations are grossly exaggerated, none of it is based on facts or evidence, and if you think $375K is a lot for a company that has 500 employees and has a minimum hourly wage of 12.50 CAD, 9.30$ you're grossly underestimating the costs of running a business.
Sure right... Like i said on My profile don't tag me if you are going to be toxic.
EDIT: Also, You say we should support the devs yet you follow up why we shouldn't... Welp..
+ Steam Prices are different from Console and Mobile. And most of the Players on Console bought DLC. Supporting the Devs. And here's the thing... $1 is affordable to all... and you want to complain ironic.
EDIT: that's why I said it was Estimations. So now stop tagging me and move on.
I personally have no interest in it at all and wont be buying but If the skins in store are anything to go by It'll probably be expensive.
WHY WOULD THEY MAKE $375K A DAY EVERYDAY? LOOOOOOL
Why estimate the price of game + dlc when you can literally go to the store and see exactly how much it costs for all of it, which you seemed to think it is over double what it costs.
At this point you have to be a troll.
Edit: Of course you'd remove the bit where you say they'll make 375K a day every day for an entire year.
Mr Business Man Michael
LIKE I SAID $200+ ON CONSOLE STEAM CAN BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE IT IS A DIFFERENT PLATFORM.
These are the prices ON CONSOLE.
COUNTING THE AURIC CELLS PACKS.
I am only estimating based on console pricing. But then again Acuric Cells might help push that $101 on steam to close to $200 that is why I estimated the prices.
Now like I said stop tagging me and move on. Geez man.
Auric cells are optional, you don't need any of them to play the game, so you're still being incredibly misinforming and pretending everyone buys 8K worth of shards lmao.
So I'm guessing you won't stop tagging me and move on to another thread and are ignoring me to stop.
*Starts to Ignore Cause I already Proved my points like 600 Times on this Topic Alone*
