    All Starhawk map packs will be free

    http://www.computerandvideogames.com...-will-be-free/

    LightBox Interactive has announced that all DLC map packs released in future for its space multiplayer shooter, Starhawk, will be free.

    "Whenever we release a map pack you won't have to pay a friggin' dime," confirmed an excited Dylan Jobe, studio president."Madness!", you may think, but there's a reason behind it. "We really didn't like how in Warhawk when we released a new map pack, it forced these divisions on our players," explained Jobe. "And after we released three expansions, our player community was pretty fractured."
    Jobe went on to release the pictured teaser image for its next map pack, showing the gloomy planet Cypress. "A lush, swampy world that's home to an abandoned research facility that many years ago was responsible for researching the mysteries of Rift Energy," said Jobe.

    They seem pretty confident in Starhawk. Awesome news, nonetheless.

    I am actually really glad right now!

    I bought 1 of 3 Warhawk expansions when they came out.. I was still a regular player but sometimes the Australian prices are pretty high so it turned me off

    I remember the days when all map packs were free..... nice to see some devs/publishers doing whats best for the gamers and the game.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live and die on this day.

    Nice, I think I am going to get this game. I did not like Warhawk at all, but this sequel seems to be the step in right direction.

    I have been looking for online game that is as good as Killzone 2 was but games like that are hard to find.

    Looking forward to playing this and Mass Effect 3 with you guys in November after the annual Toys'r us deal.
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    What is the max player numbers per server in Star hawk?
    I guess as time goes on and maps released the numbers playing the paid for maps dwindled?

    That's what i like to hear. No doubt, Starhawk is going to be a hit for the PS3.

    Critically it's doing very well, but like all PS3 exclusives it just needs more attention and advertising so the mass market can jump on it

    Wow, this is great news!
