Valkyria Chronicles 4 reveals overpriced DLC schedule

It seemed the last few years SEGA has been pretty smart with pricing, giving us some great content and launch editions for a fraction of the price. Now it seems SEGA is really believing that Valkyria Chronicles 4 will do really well since they announced their DLC schedule and pricing for Americas and Europe.

  • Japanese Voice Pack  | FREE | September 25
  • Tank Decals | Free | September 25
  • Squad E, to the Beach | $6.99 | October 9
  • A Captainless Squad | $4.99 (free with digital pre-orders) | October 23
  • Expert Level Skirmishes | $4.99 | November 4
  • The Two Valkyria | $4.99 | November 20
  • Edy’s Advance Ops | $3.99 (free if you get the limited edition) | December 4
  • A United Front with Squad 7 | $5.99 (free if you get the limited edition) | December 18

That means that it will cost you a total of 31.94 dollars worth of DLC if you want the complete version of Valkyria Chronicles 4. That means if you buy the physical standard edition, since it seems ‘A Captainless Squad‘ is only for digital pre-orders, you’ll end up paying over 90 dollars when its all said and done. Its a bit weird that SEGA is charging more for DLC than they are charging for a Yakuza 0 port on PC. I’m all for DLC as long as its fairly priced and this isn’t. I mean 5 dollars for expert level skirmishes? The game hits North America and Europe on September 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. But when is the complete edition coming out?

    This seems inline with the DLC pricing of last year’s Fire Emblem Echoes. Maybe strategy RPG fans are more tolerant of overpriced DLC?

    Personally, I’ll stick to the base game at these prices. Might pick up a pack or 2 if there’s a deep enough sale in the future.

    Looks Pretty Standard Fare as fare as DLC is concerned

      In addition to this I believe the Sega strategy was great! Take a smaller profit to prove its IP and franchises are worthy of our Dollars, but They are a company and I do not know of any company that does not wish to turn a profit. Sega is getting their footing and will be delivering us awesome content, maybe really no need to point out such a trivial thing as this, As this still seems to undercut the Average cost of DLC.
