Joystiq brings to our attention Respawn's interview with Harvard Bonin, senior producer of PS3 exclusive Starhawk. Bonin drops some hints about developer Lightbox's DLC strategy, which will involve some free goodies that "might be surprising," according to him.

The game, which mixes on-the-ground and in-the-air shooting with real time strategy elements for a unique multiplayer experience, just left the closed beta phase. Info on the public beta will reportedly be coming soon, and the game will come out some time after that—"when it's damn good and ready," to be more precise.

What kind of DLC do you think should be free? What kind is worth paying for? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter.
