I just had a thought, and I don't know how I feel about it ethically.

Right, so imagine a free game.

Good game, you play the game, it's a fun game.

But, you can buy DLC. We'll say there are 4 expansion packs (picture Blood and Wine, Hearts of Stone, etc). In each of these is a thing you can find, like a secret key.

If you get all 4 keys, then you can unlock a secret expansion pack. And it wouldn't be advertised anywhere. It would be a total secret (until the internet grabs a hold of it of course). Kind of acts as a little gift to the people who supported the game from the original through all the DLC.

Naturally I can see people getting mad at it, but I feel like this would be a pretty cool thing to do. What do you guys think?

if the secret DLC, or any of the DLCs, contains malware which empties your bank account, or fries your computer, or contain epilepsy-inducing imagery, then it would be unethical. seriously though, i don't see how it may be perceived as unethical, as long as all the paid content is advertised honestly. it may look desperate for money, though.
