LightBox Interactive has announced that every map pack DLC for Starhawk will be released for free.
Studio president Dylan Jobe noted that charging for predecessor Warhawk left a sour taste with the developer:
"Whenever we release a map pack you won't have to pay a friggin' dime. We really didn't like how in Warhawk when we released a new map pack, it forced these divisions on our players. And after we released three expansions, our player community was pretty fractured."
Jobe teased an image for its next map pack, which depicts the 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."
Starhawk released in North America today, while its European launch is on Friday.
