      I'm into eating, so let me know when you have it all prepped.

        Unfortunately, I've had to postpone my planned hunting trip because of this bastard coronavirus. Don't want to risk potentially taking it out to small country towns if I am a asymptomatic carrier.

    I played the original years ago and loved it. DLC killed it for me though. Any idea how much you have to spend (ongoing) on ammo and weapons to make this a viable game?

      There is plenty to do without any DLC. I would say, out of the box, there is hundreds of hours of content and you will not feel restricted with calibres or game in any way. Some calibres are DLC only, but guns and ammo are bought using in game currency, not real world money. Out of all of the "games as a service" style games I've played, this is the only one that doesn't feel like a cynical cash grab.

      Honestly, the only complaint I have is the occasional bug or two, but they are very easy to overlook because the whole thing is so well put together.

      You start with two gigantic maps and can unlock all the weapons you need. I've bought additional maps at $8 each and it's been absolutely worth it for me. The only must-buy DLC is the ATV, unless you like walking everywhere.
