IDK if you guys just missed this or what ?
“With Warface we aim to become the next-gen of free to play shooters that are on par with traditional AAA games in terms of quality. We have the team and technology to make it happen and are starting with strong partners in Asia to ensure we gain experience with the free to play business model”, said Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek. “It’s the next logical step for us to bring this new IP to a global audience and thus to our worldwide community.”
So supposedly AAA quality title free to play , that can't be done unless it's planned to be subscription based or some microtransaction nonsense.
That said if it would be a true AAA quality game like i.e BF3 with top end graphics and we would get it for free i would consider subscribing.
See thing is single player PC only games can hardly make a decent profit due to piracy and general lower PC sales so Crytek is trying make the Wolf (EA) happy and the lamb (us) alive
What they should do is release really good multiplayer and later on when they establish some player base release single player in parts say 10/15 bucks a pop or even one time for say 30/35$.
This would be completly different aproach to games but lets face it they no longer can invest huge money to make PC exclusive like Crysis 1 and they get bashed when they go multi platform and compromise on the quality so they need something new.
I know this smells like CoD type of milking but if they would really give me my money worth with quality content i would totally jump on it.Blitz6804: "Please refrain from using profanity on Overclock.net"
