Good Old Games Surveys Community on Downloadable Content

After a less-than-stellar launch of downloadable content for Omerta: City of Gangsters, Good Old Games has decided that it wants feedback from the community on whether it should continue to offer DLC and other content. As the company steps into offering newer games the reality is that a lot of these games use new models for content including multiplayer, offering early access to games, season passes for purchasing DLC content in bulk, and episodic content.

The survey hopes to gauge what the community thinks about these different types of content being offered by GOG in the future. Below is the list of question, but you can jump right to the survey here.

1. Offer DLC so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

2. Offer Season Passes for DLC so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

3. Offer episodic content for uncompleted "seasons" of games so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

4. Offer Season Passes of episodic content for uncompleted "seasons" of games so we can offer you more, newer games on the site

5. Offer early access to unfinished builds of actively-developed games that will contain bugs?

6. Allow fans to "buy in" early on a game's alpha or beta–for a little more money–to support the developer and help make the game better?

7. Sell games that are primarily multiplayer focused (*not MMOs*), but which require unique serial keys to play online?

8. Sell games that are primarily multiplayer focused (*not MMOs*), but which have persistent online features which are tracked on the developer's end (matchmaking, statistics, achievements, etc) and which require 3rd party accounts (i.e. a login for the developer's online service)?
