Picture: Atlus

Episode Aigis, the contentious DLC coming to Persona 3 Reload this September, goes to value gamers who personal the bottom sport a reasonably penny. To be exact it would value $35. That’s as a result of it would solely be accessible as a part of the sport’s Enlargement Cross, which bundles three items of post-release DLC. Which means it prices half the value of the bottom sport. And whereas it is a transfer sure to polarize followers much more on Episode Aigis, it’s a choice that feels in step with Atlus’s established strategy to paid DLC.

Speaking to Push Sq., an PR consultant for Atlus mentioned that “the three elements of the Enlargement Cross won’t be accessible individually.” These three elements are Episode Aigis (a prolonged epilogue to the bottom sport), in addition to music and costume packs themed to Persona 4 and 5. The value of the Enlargement Cross has already sparked criticism from followers, as a result of it costing half the value of the bottom sport and never being included for many who bought the $100 Premium Version or $200 Aigis Version of the sport. The one approach to get the Enlargement Cross at no further value is to obtain it as a Game Pass subscriber, wherein case you truly personal it even when your subscription ends. The Steam web page for the Enlargement Cross at the moment has largely detrimental critiques, though the primary wave of content material solely launched on March 12, with customers admonishing Atlus over the value.

The inclusion of Episode Aigis has struck a nerve for its personal causes. Episode Aigis is Reload’s model of The Reply, the epilogue to the bottom sport initially included on the 2007 FES launch of Persona 3. Not providing followers the chance to buy Episode Aigis alone is simply one other manner Atlus is digging itself right into a gap with followers, because it reduces the selection to a binary purchase or don’t play the DLC in any respect. In recent times Atlus has earned the ire of followers for its DLC practices on a number of events. I wrote at size about Soul Hackers 2’s day one DLC that added a “bonus” story growth that felt like a vital piece of content material to fill out the empty sections of the sport. Persona 3 Reload’s Enlargement Cross is the unlucky, however pure development of this strategy to DLC.

Within the lead as much as Reload’s launch, builders marketed the sport as a remake of the unique Persona 3. It could not embrace content material from the FES or PlayStation Moveable releases of Persona 3. That meant followers have been informed to not count on The Reply or the feminine protagonist. Persona sequence normal producer Kazuhisa Wada even reassured audiences that Reload was a “full expertise,” only one month earlier than saying Episode Aigis. Now, in any case these guarantees, Atlus is charging $35 extra to get entry to content material that most likely ought to have been a part of the remake’s base launch.
