{{MMORPG}}s used to rely heavily on this model and the [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft biggest]] [[VideoGame/UltimaOnline titles]] [[VideoGame/GuildWars with]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV physical]] [[VideoGame/{{Rift}} editions]] still do, either as the sole method of distribution or as an option for those with poor internet connections. FreeToPlay titles deliver most of their content updates [[DigitalDistribution online]] but may occasionally bundle several patches together on a disc in an example of this trope.

* The original ''VideoGame/OperationFlashpoint : Cold War Crisis'' first received the ''[[POVSequel Red Hammer]]'' expansion, which only added a new campaign for the Soviet forces and was made by the game's publisher (Codemasters). The second and more substantial expansion was ''Resistance'', which was made by the main developers again and offered a lot of technical and gameplay improvements ({{RPG Elements}}, sidearms, better sounds, animations and graphics) in addition to a new setting and new [[LaResistance guerilla warfare-themed]] campaign. Notably, the devs also offered various vehicle and weapon addons prior and after the release of ''Resistance'' in the form of free DownloadableContent - this was still a relatively new concept back in 2002-2004. All of the addons and most of the expansions were later included in the collector's edition of the game.
