The game's creative director, Craig Frazer, also explained their reasoning for making small expansions rather than large ones: "If PC gaming is to survive, the industry will need to be open to change. We went out on a limb with our anti-DRM stance and it paid off really well. We tried an unusually long beta period and that worked as well. Micro-expansions are just another experiment we are trying out to improve the market. These small expansions give us the opportunity to provide highly focused, high quality content within a reasonable time frame. Micro-expansions also reduce the development risk associated with 1-3 year cycles. With lower risk, we can be far more progressive in terms of gameplay and content."pa href=";from=rss"img src=";op=imageamp;style=h0amp;sid=08/10/22/1951215"/a/ppa href=";from=rss"Read more of this story/a at Slashdot./ppa href=""img src="" border="0" ismap="true"/img/a/pimg src="" height="1" width="1"/
