The words live service send shivers down the spines of long-time readers, but it’s not always a bad thing – after all, there’s very little wrong with getting more of a game you love. Meet Your Maker, which will launch next week at no extra cost for PS Plus subscribers, is certainly hoping to maximise its potential with post-release support – and the vast majority of it will be free.

Behaviour Interactive, perhaps learning from its approach with Dead by Daylight, has a pretty robust plan laid out. It’ll all begin a couple of weeks after release, with the addition of an entirely new Deco Pack, allowing you to customise your labyrinths with an eerie mix of synthetic and organic matter. “Pulsing animations and sinister lighting will make players feel as though they’re raiding inside a living organism,” the press release reads. Lovely.

It’ll be followed by a brand new set of Mods and Augments, expanding the release’s already sizeable creative potential. “Builders will suddenly gain new ways to affect their traps and guards, giving them even more control over their setups and combos to outsmart Raiders,” the blurb notes. “For Raiders, just when they think they’ve gotten things figured out, they’ll face more challenges to overcome.” All of these will be unlockable in-game.

And then finally, as early as June 2023, the release will receive its first major expansion: Dreadshore. “For starters, a new environment and a new Deco Pack will be instantly available for free to all players as soon as the update is released. The environment introduces a new region of Meet Your Maker’s post-apocalyptic world where players will be able to build using a new Sector-themed set of building blocks designed to create a completely different style of Outpost.”

This new content will be complemented by a range of new weapons, tools, traps, and enemies – all with unique mods and perks. You’ll be able to unlock these in-game, or purchase them immediately from the PS Store. And just to round things out, a further cosmetic collection will be available to purchase from Sony’s storefront as well.

So not everything is a microtransaction, and it sounds like there’ll actually be quite a lot of new stuff to unlock just through natural gameplay. Behaviour Interactive’s also eager to stress that, despite the long-tail support, this will be a complete game at launch: “Keeping things fresh, ever-changing, and always unexpected is our mission when it comes to adding content to Meet Your Maker.”
