Why are the Beach Bum DLC vehicles no longer free?

I know this DLC is three years old, but why did they make you have to buy these vehicles? I never found out why.

I don't remember which update added prices to them, but it was a long time ago (but before the game came out on new-gen/PC), and quite a while after Beach Bum came out.

They weren't forced onto players, just free.

 

Why were they free in the first place? It was the first DLC and it came out not long after the $500k "apology" payments to players following the disaster that was October 2013. They were trying to court players back to the game again. (My opinion and observations. I never saw an official reason published)

I'm glad I got my Speeder for free, it almost came in handy that one time in three years.

Well, it did fill up that icon on "Player Access".

Also, it's the fastest boat in the game (according to Broughy, though the Seashark is the overall "better" boat)

That's true, it is a nice boat too I just never seem to need or think to call it in. I much prefer a Seashark when I feel like a leisure cruise on the water.

They were free for a limited time as an apology for the sucky, buggy early days of Online. It was never planned for DLC stuff too be free, or stay free.

C'mon dude, who wouldn't want to own a boat after having billions of dollars to spend on nothing?

Being free makes it better!!

I still use my Bifta. Fun little car.

Great fun isn't it, speed and power off-road and lots of sliding around, which admittedly makes it difficult to control in races but is a good thing out of them.

 

The Kalahari is in the top one cars in the game too for me, beast.

So now its just "Beach" ? The Beach DLC.

 

Actually, that makes more sense.

Ah yes; the "minor" detail that R* frequently overlooks: "what unique game play advantage does this vehicle offer?"

They were only free because Online was so sh*t the first month. They were an "We are sorry" gift. Much like the $500k and the Ratloader.
