So Daemon X Machina just launched on PC but no dlc is included, and you need to pay for all of them?

With the exception of some licensed DLC, the PC release will include all content updates including new Arsenal gear, cosmetic options, Colossal Immortal battles, and a co-op Exploration Mission mode.
I keep reading this and to me it looks like all dlcs were planned to be included, for free, in the PC version (and in fact I purchased it thinking I had all dlcs in the game already, considering this is a full price later port and usually it works like this) except the licensed ones, the game launched and there are 49.38€ of dlcs already available to purchase, not included in the game?

The game only launched on Switch less than six months ago. This isn't some 12 -18 month late "Game of the Year" complete edition.

This happens with quite a few Switch Ports as well...and the price is higher cuz of the Switch Tax too.

Did they ever say "included for free"?

Because launching with and bundling for free is not the same thing.

Language does suggest the DLC would be included.

I am sure you'll be able to get a Steam refund, even if you're outside the "under two hours played" threshold, especially if you cite the reason.

It really doesn't. It is just indicating that some of the licensed DLC that is available on the Switch version is not available on the PC version.

What you've quoted means all content listed is available in the port--it's not missing anything besides the licensed dlc, not necessarily free. I can see why you'd think it would be included but that wasn't my first thought when reading it tbh.

The content updates they list were free content updates. They just mean you won't have to wait for those, they are already in there.

Here's a better worded version on a different part of the site:

Originally released on the Nintendo Switch system in 2019, the mech action game DAEMON X MACHINA is now coming to the PC. Fully optimized for the new platform, the PC version includes all the content updates that have been released since the original launch of the game, including additional Arsenal parts and weapons, Outer modifications, Colossal Immortal battles, and an Exploration Mission co-op mode.

Perhaps if they used the word "offer" rather than "include".

It's not uncommon at all for later rereleases of games on other platforms to include DLC at no additional charge.

"Does this include the DLC?""

"Yes it does".

Edit: I don't think it's deliberately misleading, but I do think it's kinda ambiguous and could lead to confusion.

I don't really see the issue, but maybe it's because I have the game on switch already (released 6 months ago) and the DLC is cosmetic only.
