the devs are basically waiting to get the 360 version going through the certification from MS. There is no news if they even started working on the pc version.

I mean I know it explains why this game is kind of a clunky 360 port with the horrible default fov and all that, but they could at least state if the pc version will ever get the DLC.

It says the DLC will also come to Steam. But doesn´t sound interesting. Only 2 new Weapons, 2 new difficulty settings and some Achievements.

You have to pay for it? Not me. I refuse to pay for additional content to a game I already paid for. Especially if that is all it's going to contain.

Given that that seems to be the general reaction, "you want us to pay for what?!?", maybe they are re-evaluating the DLC release. If nothing else, even though I have no plans on getting it if is ever released, I hope they change the weapons so that the DLC doesn't contain a weapon already part of the limited edition. I mean what says "screw you early adopters and full price payers" like charging for content you already have?

It's just a mod. Nothing new, just difficulty and weapon tweaks.

There are probably hundreds of Stalker mods ... all free.

With the time this is taking the crew doing it is pretty lame. I doubt it's the game developers, they are working of on 2034.

No way I will ever pay for this mod.

Thats stupid... read it yourself...

"I refuse to pay for additional content to a game I already paid for."

You payed for the game not the additional content. What makes you entitled to it for free?

Extra content is usually made after the main game. Unlike patches, it's the developer/publisher decision to charge for it. It's like an expansion pack if you like. Quake 3 had Quake 3 Team Arena, Duke 3D had Duke it out in DC, they weren't free. It's the same thing

um no. see, quake 3 team arena added new weapons, maps, character models. this DLC adds 2 weapons(one was a preorder exclusive) and a new difficulty (basically enemy damage = 1.5 instead of 1). that should not warrant a huge price.

If you think its the exact same and warrents a price, I have a bridge to sell you.

Maybe I worded it wrong, I refuse to pay for a slight mod of the game. Team Arena was a standalone game and I had no problem paying for Clear Sky as it was a standalone game but considered an expansion, same with Call of Pripyat. There is a difference. If people want to continue supporting this recent charging for tiny extras, so be it. I refuse to play along.

I remember when things like this were free, and it wasn't that long ago. But this new generation seems to gobble it up without a thought. Next thing you know they will be charging you by the bullet for ammo in the games.

I dont like playing games where binoculars are welded to my guy's head. if you like having such a zoomed in angle where you have no peripheral vision what so ever, then good for you. I rather play games ported properly tbh.

Except in the case of Bioshock 2. :p

The first DLC was already on the disk, you just had to pay to unlock it.

Having played the game for some 200 hours I get the feeling it was always a 'game in progress' and released with whatever they had gotten around to developing. Linear or not it was always an unfinished masterpiece. I assume it was always understood that it was a 'new direction' in fps/rpg gaming.

That said, it has too few interesting parts that were not exploited, and many parts, not as interesting 'as implemented' (remember it has a book to follow), there for future work.

It could be improved upon only if it is 'filled out,' which means a 2034 version. Simply adding a 'ranger' option and a few new weapons will not do. My hope, for my fifty bucks, is that the 2034 version will overlay the 2033 version with no additional cost to the original 2033 purchaser.

And I would like to see it as it is now, not a flunky update as happened to 'left for dead.'

Anyhoo, the DLC will be free for PC, and be released on August 3rd.

I've got no clue what you're talking about. The only time the peripheral vision is cut off is if you're wearing the gas mask or the nightvision goggles. If you put on the nightvision goggles you have to hold down the key twice to take them off.

I've never experienced what you're describing outside of using those two things... Hope this clears it up for you.

Steam stuff normally becomes available around 1600 GMT here in the UK. I'm just guessing here but I think that's probably around mid-morning in Washington, where Valve HQ is located.

Thanks for not rushing this patch, I for one have had my share of patches that were not ready for distribution, and I will wait until you are done doing your work.

Apparently they are still ironing bugs out with the achievements I'm assuming they are waiting because the bug showed up on the Xbox, so i'm guessing they are trying to fix it on PC as well before its released.

i hate that the xbox players get the patch on time & we didn't. i guess if they found unpredictable problems, its ok but they've left us in the dark. that annoys the hell out of me.

We have no idea whats going on and rumours are speculating, i think it was here, they said "there ironing out bugs", they NEVER said that ...

It actually just proves that Microsoft don't like giving stuff away for free. Xbox Live rules force developers to charge for even tiny DLC like this. Microsoft think if too much DLC is given away for free, people won't be willing to pay for it any more.

Frustrating that there isn't even a statement about the status of the Ranger pack. Anyone seen anything new anywhere? I emailed 4A Games but they don't reply (to be fair I'm sure they have better things to do, and it's THQ who should keep customers informed.)
