Ark: Survival Evolved is a popular Steam Early Access title, but its overall "mostly positive" review average is currently under threat. Following yesterday’s reveal that the game would receive a $19.99 expansion pack, its first ever paid downloadable content, former devotees are turning against the open-world adventure game. "[Ark] started off as [a] shining example of how to do early access," one highly recommended negative review reads. "Ended up a complete disaster after the developer went off on adventure of making [free-to-play spinoff Ark: Survival of the Fittest], console versions and paid expansion while still in early access! No wonder the game is so behind schedule."
What is your take on this? Is it OK for an Early Access game to ask for paid DLC?
