Live Service Games as a concept is just Games as a Service (GaaS) with a different name to a certain extent. The main idea is that the game you purchase is not the complete package or all that you will be experiencing. Traditionally games fell into three large camps, one launch, subscription fee, or launch with DLC later. In recent years, Live Service, as a concept, has caught on because of the potential monetization and ongoing revenue streams. Recent trends in the industry, however, may make it tough for this format to work and Outriders might be the first to turn the rudder.
