Fed up with DLC and premium strategies but moving instead to a model that requires you to buy new weapons, maps, and characters (slots or custom loadouts)? Seems kind of contradictory to me..

I wonder if this will apply to Crysis 3 as well, I doubt it though

They are moving to this model after Homefront 2 has launched.

I prefer the F2P model as you don't have to pay a thing and you get the full game. Provided the weapons and items are merely a side grade and not pay to win then I'm happy buying items up to the value I think the game is worth.

May Jesus bless the CEO of Crytek!!!!! I cautiously welcome it...

I hope he's not on the path of 'Corporate Greed'....Otherwise, he's in the same cateogry with the Syrian regime

could be cool, as long as it's not pay-to-win, as already stated. otherwise i'd have zero interest in something like that.

How does F2P monetisation differ from the "exploitive" models of DLC & premium services/features? Isn't the entire F2P concept built upon monetising on the premium experience with items, cosmetic enhancements, special events etc? (arguably "premium services")

But what if the people who don't have the money or won't upgrade to premium, have an EXTREME disadvantage (for i.e, BattlefieldF2P)
