Tabletop Simulator has added Euphoria: Build A Better Dystopia as their next official paid DLC according to an announcement made on their Steam Community page.

A dystopian cityscape awaits your leadership as you make strategic choices to construct markets, enhance allegiances, and expand control in this thematic dice worker-placement game.

Tabletop Simulator’s developer Berserk Games has entered into a partnership with Stonemaier Games. Their previous titles include Viticulture: The Strategic Game of Winemaking and the city-building game Between Two CitiesTechRaptor’s Travis Williams reviewed the physical copy of Euphoria, and TechRaptor interviewed Stonemaier Games about their game Scythe at Gen Con 2015.

There is not yet any word on what price the DLC will launch at. Tabletop Simulator’s two existing DLCs are the card game Superfight  (priced at $4.99) and the token-based empire building game Cosmic Encounter Connector (priced at $9.99). Euphoria: Build A Better Dystopia is based on cards, dice, and tokens so it’s reasonable to assume that it will probably be somewhere in this price range.

The pricing of Tabletop Simulator’s DLC has been a contentious issue within the community. A thread on the Steam Community during the launch of their first DLC for Superfight contained complaints about the price of the DLC and the news that every connecting player would have to own a copy in order to play it. This was contrary to the existing behavior of the Tabletop Simulator client. As long as the host has the game, it is normally streamed seamlessly to all of the other players connecting to the host. There have been other lengthy discussions about the nature of DLC in Tabletop Simulator as well.

Arguably a major part of Tabletop Simulator’s appeal is the Steam Workshop for the game which contains many legally dubious recreations of existing board games as well as a lot of original works and legal clones.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
