DS: Season Passes have become the scourge of games in recent years. We're not opposed to additional content for games, far from it. But when the cost of a Season Pass matches that of a full game, our alarm bells start to ring. What's worse, so many of these passes offer a paltry amount of content that simply doesn't justify the price. Consider that Season Passes often stick to their high price long after the main game can be bought for fraction of the original cost a few months after release and the farce becomes even more laughable.
There are signs of encouragement though. Signs that a balance can be struck for developers and publishers making extra dough and so gamers can come away with good value for money. Right now, we're looking at CD Projekt Red (The Witcher III: Wild Hunt) and Bethesda (Fallout 4) as high-profile candidates to show the rest how it's done.
