Necromunda: Hired Gun (Streum On Studios / Focus Home Interactive) is missing 3 paid DLCs on GOG.
The game was released on 1 June 2021 on all major stores, including GOG. However, Steam and EGS also offer three DLC packs:
- Hunter's Bounty Pack (cosmetic DLC)
- Artbook DLC
- Soundtrack DLC
It's now a week later and the DLC is still not sold on GOG, while it has been available on Steam and EGS since release. So far, Streum On Studios and Focus Home Interactive have been completely silent about this.
Note: People who preordered the game did receive the Hunter's Bounty Pack on GOG as part of the game's preorder scheme. This means Streum On Studios / Focus Home Interactive did provide GOG with the necessary files for the DLC, which implies they intentionally chose not to take the extra step of also selling it as a separate DLC here.
The Hunter's Bounty Pack was part of the preorder bonus, GoG-buyers got it at launch, but unable to pick it up now. There should be no issue offering it at this point...
As for the soundtrack, usually GoG is allowing it to be sold separately, so i don´t know the issue, probably licensing issues. The artbook is usually free on GoG, but the publisher apparently doesn´t enjoy this idea and so they are not offering it for free, else the Steam customers may become upset. Steam is still the most important platform to them and it will be risky upseting Steam-users.
Indeed, its kinda a ripoff selling a artbook, but it seems like this is the way many publishers are heading, as long as users are accepting this sort of behaviour.
