Yooka-Laylee will have DLC, which ‘won’t start development until it ships’

Good

Playtonic has reached the two million mark for its Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter, and now, it’s thinking far ahead of its “extra polish” stretch goal. It has set its sights on DLC, and the way it is handling it is pretty commendable.

According to a statement from the Kickstarter, Playtonic notes that, “When – and only when – we’ve finished and shipped the full version of Yooka-Laylee, we’ll start work on additional content that will be distributed to backers free of charge for their platform of choice. And again, all additional funding will of course go towards improving and polishing the game.”

Not only is this a great way to assuage fears of DLC getting “cut out” of the main game, but it’s also incentive to back the project itself, ensuring that you’ll get it for free. It’s a win-win in my book.
