Not everyone was thrilled at today’s news that Elite: Dangerous would be expanding to allow for planetary touchdowns with its upcoming Horizons expansion. One monster thread has erupted on the Elite: Dangerous subreddit complaining that the expansion price is far too expensive and unfair to players who purchased the original game.
“Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want to spend $120 on a game, no matter how good it is,” the original poster commented. “Anyone who has NOT bought the game so far is going to be able to get all the content and the original game for $60. But if you’ve already bought the game, it costs you $105 total. And Frontier is wording it like you get a DEAL for already having the game. That’s not a loyalty discount, that’s called screwing over everyone who already supports you. I don’t get it. How does that make sense?”
As of the writing of this article, the Horizons pricing post has grown to 758 comments, with similar angry posts filling up the subreddit’s front page.
