How to make Ascended free instead

Suggestion

Instead Ascended being bundled with Ark 2 and payed DLCs, there is a way to make it both free, and add new content along with it.

Basicly do what GGG does with PoE. Implement MTX people can pay for if they want.

LIke Weapon skins, armor skins, Saddle skins and so on. Game already have skins, and it's 100% cosmetic and doesn't give any P2W feature.

Now, this has several advantages both for players AND Wildcard.

1. Players that want can customize looks far more.
2. It gives Wildcard a steady incomestream, instead of just from DLC or game sales.
3. This gives incentive for keeping the game updated with new content, as content = more players = more mtx sales.
4. Wildcard doing this for Ascended would give them insight if this is a model they could consider for future game releases.

And if Wildcard still wants to bundle with Ark 2, they could give people ordering Ark 2 some special MTX pack you only get from pre-ordering. 


For those doubters out there. This is a model that 100% has nothing to do with gameplay, it gives zero advantage, it's pure cosmetics and games following this model are generally updated way more often as the company makes money on having an active community/more players.

A rule of thumb for technical writing. Unless you are writing to an audience that knows exactly what you are talking about, always spell out acronyms first before you use them later.

I just read "Basically do what mixed martial artist Gennady Golovkin (GGG) does with power over ethernet (PoE). Implement a marching band shoe (MTX)". 😁

There is a good point to be made here though.

 

After Ark: survival ascended (ASA) releases, I think the community would be 100% for the devs selling pure cosmetic skins.

As it stands, the only skins you get are for the DLC chronicles notes and the achievements. What if you could include similar default survivor items such as skins and chibis, as sell-able little trinkets in, (for example), the steam store, as the OP mentioned? I guarantee players would be willing to throw more money at Wildcard (WC) for that kind of thing. 

Given that WC already made mention of the idea of premium (paid) mods for ASA, surely they would be willing to offer up unique store bought skins for the community?
