The video gives players a glimpse at what the new DLC pack includes. It shows the new playable race, the Castithan, along with the new charged blade (part of a new charged set of weapons that are now available for the Defiance game) plus a short peek at the new 4-man Raptor vehicle.
For those that don’t already know, this DLC pack is available for $9.99 (or nothing if you already purchased the DLC season pass). But what a lot of people don’t realize is that a lot of this new content is available for free. The actual paid DLC only provides players with access to the following:
While that sounds alright is it really worth $10? Here’s something to help you decide. These are the new features and content that current players will have access to WITHOUT having to buy the DLC:
So while the actual paid portion of the DLC does offer a bit more play time in the single player story mode and gives you the ability to change your race to the new Castithan option, the free content is just as good if not better. So is it really worth opening up your wallet to drop $10 when you get a lot for free already? This may have been a bad move on Trion Worlds’ part to get sales of the Castithan Charge Pack DLC.
