This is a little unusual: A movie has been patched, a few weeks after release. Of course, the movie is Valve‘s documentary Free to Play, so we should have expected nothing less, but still… it’s a bit odd, no?
The massive, 2.1GB update is kind of great, however: Believe it or not, there are actually some bug fixes involved (plus tweaks to the menu and some localisation issues), and this also marks the launch of a version for Linux.
The big difference, though: Free to Play now also contains “Premiere Q&A content” – that is, a recording of the Q&A session that took place at the film’s recent premiere. This means you’ve got a bunch of extra footage featuring both Dendi and Fear, plus the Valve staffers who worked on the project, as interviewed by James “2GD” Harding and the live audience.
After all that, the extra content adds nothing to the price, which is a resounding $0 (besides any download fees from your ISP). It’s a bargain at twice the price – why not join the more than 5.5 million gamers who’ve watched it so far?
