Thoughts and opinions on dead by daylight being free?
So let's just point out the obvious stuff, dead by daylight base game costs roughly $20, $30 for the deluxe edition and there's only one edition on console which is roughly $30 as well and over the years, they have been getting a lot of money alone on that.
With the amount of DLCs they have, people don't have the time in their life to grind for iridescent shards since they're not easily obtained, as saying that they're easy to get just by playing the game and leveling up, it's the grinding aspect of it that's just not easy, and with nothing to boost how much shards you get per level, it's just very tedious and with other DLCs, you either buy them with auric cells or buy the DLC itself (which buying the auric cells to then get the character is a bit more cheaper than just actually buying the DLC itself in some cases)
And of course the cosmetics, with most of them being repetitive Style, just with different colors, which are usually the ones that cost iridescent shards and the more unique ones costing auric cells, which more people go for and that gives Behavior the money, you've seen it, we've all has seen it, every lobby we join into, someone has a cosmetic that cost auric cells.
And now with their new system coming up, The Archives and the Battle Pass (which to me and I think to most people, they both kind of look and sound the same from the concept we've got so far) they're going to earn even more money with that if they have a premium set for it
So with all that in mind, they're getting money from the DLCs, the license DLCs, the cosmetics, upcoming archives and battle pass, should dead by daylight definitely go free? And since there's only one edition on Console, should the price be reduce below $10? make it go free? Or put up another Edition which will be the base game which is free one?
