Something that cross my mind about this game...
I really enjoy the game and I like they way I pay once then no monthly cost.
I don't know how much DLC that will come but it seem to be alot.

But isn't that almost the same as a monthly cost?
Buying several DLC over a year instead of a monthly cost.

What new things does a person get who does not buy DLC?

Hope someone have a good answer on these two questions!

Almost except it isn't mandatory unless you want new gear, you'll still be able to explore new areas and such but unable to use the gear that comes from them unless you have the DLC.

Well from the details they've given us so far just new areas to explore and possibly new quests.

The season pass is $40 which is good for up to 5 DLC's so roughly about $8 per DLC.

Though either way it's a bit of steal since even in Pay to Play you usually have to pay for "DLC" (expansions).

Also there will be free ones as well.

It might look the same from one point of view. But its very different. A monthly cost game requires you to pay a fee to play the base game but it doesnt mean you'll always get new content for that money. A DLC is completely optional and is absolutely new content for your money.

Since its optional, you get to decide if its worth buying or not. You still keep playing either way. And it puts the burden completely on Trion. If they want your continued money, they better put out some DLC worth buying. Thats Win Win for us.

And on your second question they'll be doing both DLC and Free content updates. All the episode tie in stuff from the show will all be on the free side I believe.

Sledge did a season pass/DLC thread here the other day so I thought you were referring to that. Lesson learned :P

Stop paying your monthly sub on any other game, then go ahead and try logging into your character.... not the same at all. Also consider that on top of monthly subs youre also going to be paying for any new content in most games through expansions which cost just as much, sometimes more, than Defiance's seas pass every 1-2 years.
