Expansion Packs, Add-ons and DLC

A DLC license is required if the licensee plans to release new post-launch content for the product (expansion packs, downloadable add-ons) that use the audio engine. Purely cosmetic DLC that does not require new audio files (character clothes/skins, for example) do not require a DLC license. A 12-month DLC license entitles the Licensee to release unlimited new DLC content for a period of twelve months. After development of new content is completed, a DLC license would no longer be required for subsequent years.

A 1-year unlimited support plan is included for all Premium licenses; an unlimited support plan is included for all Platinum licenses.

Please contact our sales team for further information on Wwise product Licensing.

Wwise Royalty-Based License

This option allows you to license Wwise on a royalty basis, rather than with an up-front fee. The post-launch royalty rate is 1%, based on gross sales of your game. Please see the Licensing FAQ for more details.

In order to obtain the Wwise Royalty-Based License, please register your project here.

GaaS License

This option is specifically targeted at games that follow a Games-as-a-Service model (Free to Play or Paid initial access). This allows you to use Wwise for free up until the game’s launch, and then pay a monthly fee based on the total revenue generation across all platforms. Compared to the standard Royalty model, revenue reporting is highly simplified. Depending on the monthly level of success monthly for your game, you may not require any payment. This license also covers all required and validated deployment platforms, and includes free access to all Audiokinetic-developed Premium Plug-ins. Please see the Licensing FAQ for more details.
