Devolver MaxPass+ revealed
For the past four years indie publisher Devolver Digital have come to E3 with a satire presentation on the video game industry as a whole.
This year’s gag on the current trends within the industry is their new subscription service - Devolver MaxPass+ a "completely free subscription service that offers the entire Devolver Digital catalog - including all future titles - as exclusive, premium purchases".
"Devolver MaxPass+ is a groundbreaking new way to keep consumers paying for content under the warm blanket of a subscription service. A no-cost subscription service for top tier consumers that unlocks access to dozens, possibly hundreds of dozens of premium purchases available only to the most important users", the press release reads.

Be warned, you only get one attempt at each temple and failure or settling for a lesser relic means you will never see that temple again…
