Season Passes are so prevalent now that it is weird to think they have only actually existed since 2011. Only a handful of years ago, the idea of pre-ordering a bundle of DLC would have seemed strange enough, let alone doing it with little to no idea of what’s actually included in the bundle. Regardless of how you feel about them, there is no denying that Season Passes are just as much a part of the games industry now as anything else, but how long will that last? In its fifth episode, The Game Café looks at Season Passes and the modern trends with DLC that everyone just takes for granted.

Gamespresso’s weekly gaming podcast, The Game Café tackles a different issue in the games industry every week. In this episode, the team also touches on the unfortunate cancelation of Scalebound and a bit of news concerning Kingdom Hearts 3 and the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. You can grab the newest episode on iTunes, Google Play Music, and Stitcher. Or, you can listen to it right here:

Until next time, what do you think of Season Passes? Have you ever purchased one only to never play most of the DLC and regret it later? Do you appreciate the option of a pre-order bundle, even if you usually don’t take games up on it? Let us know. The conversation is always better if we get to hear from you too.
