Bethesda also announced their plans for post-launch DLC content. It’s a mix of free and paid DLC, with player-created content available at no cost. id will also add updates to SnapMap, the software players will use to create content, free of charge. In addition, all new multiplayer game modes will be free.

The three paid DLC packs will bne priced at $14.99 each. As you might expect, there will also be a Season Pass available at $39.99 that will net you all three. The first of these packs is due “this summer” and will include the following:

  • Three new maps
  • One new weapon
  • One new playable demon
  • One new armor set
  • One new piece of equipment
  • New hack modules and taunts
  • New customization colors and patterns
