What is a DLC? #
The LootLocker DLC feature lets you create a unlockable group of unlockable Assets that are connected to First Party DLC systems. DLCs are created on the First Party website as well as in the LootLocker DLC Menu, and then connected together with a DLC identifier or id. When a player starts your game, LootLocker (with the help of the game client) checks their First Party account for any new DLC, and then migrates the content into their Inventory.
What is DLC Migration? #
DLC Migration refers to the process of unlocking the LootLocker DLC content after verifying the DLC purchase on the First Party platform. DLC Migration can be used to create exciting DLC packages that can be sold alongside your game, while avoiding having to actually include any Assets to be downloaded from the First Party platform.
