Expansion Packs, Add-ons and DLC

A DLC license is required if the licensee plans to release new paid content for the product (expansion packs, downloadable add-ons) that use the audio engine. Purely cosmetic DLC (character clothes/skins, for example) do not require a DLC license. A 12-month DLC license entitles the Licensee to release unlimited DLC content for a period of twelve months.

REV Engine Model Licenses
REV Engine Model license fees are sold on a per title basis; there are no fees for additional platforms.

Show REV Engine Model pricing

You can choose between two GME pricing models: per Minute or per PCU (Peak Concurrent Users). Upon the addition of GME to your Wwise license, your project leader will have the ability to monitor usage and cost. Changing pricing models to accommodate your project milestones will be possible by accessing your Project page via your Audiokinetic account.

Per Minute Pricing Model

We recommend the per Minute pricing model for games in development as the first 10,000 minutes per month are free, and then changing to the per PCU pricing model upon release. Note that this pricing model may also be advantageous for games during a soft launch with a low user base.

  • Per Minute
  • Usage below 10,000 Minutes
  • Usage above 10,000 Minutes
  • Monthly Fee (US$)
  • Free
  • 0.00094$ per minute

Per PCU Pricing Model

We recommend the per PCU pricing model for most released games and especially games with a significant user base.

  • Per PCU
  • 1 - 5,000 PCU
  • 5,001 - 50,000 for every 5,000 PCU
  • 50,001 - 100,000 for every 5,000 PCU
  • 100,001 - 300,000 for every 5,000 PCU
  • 300,001+ for every 5,000 PCU

Please see the Licensing FAQ for more details.
