Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has told VideoGamer.com that the company's future output will solely consist of triple-A free-to-play titles - adding that the current trend for premium gaming services is 'milking customers to death.'
I can't be mad. Planetside 2! paying for skins I will probably end up paying $30 in all for a f2p game.
Planetside 2 is SOE (Sony Online Entertainment), I think your thinking of Warface
Mistaken or not any excuse to talk about planetside 2 is great. It's looking to be about the best sci fi shooter coming out in the near future.
Not going to argue with that, so glad I got a gaming PC this past month so I can play it lol
Poor Crytek. Getting upstaged by another developer in their own article. =/
Is it possible that PS3 could handle Planetside 2? If not, maybe they might make a PS4 version (yeah I know it's PC only, but it's still a Sony game, so I gotta hope, since my PC sucks).
Just cause a game is F2P does not make it sub par! Most f2p games are B to AAA+ with some being CRAP but lately the new wave of f2p titles are dam good and have to compete in an ever expanding market of AAA f2p titles. Crytek's Warface in it's pre-alpha stage has good graphics and is shaping up to be a better MP experience than previous Crytek MP modes. I don't think it will out duel Tribes: Ascend, Planetside 2, Firefall, or Blacklight Retribution but it looks to be solid. Blacklight Retribution, Tribes: Ascend, Firefall, Planetside 2, Arma X, Team Fortress 2, Hawken, World of Tanks, League of Legends, and many other titles are f2p and have AAA development.
Cool another developer to nickel and dime people with crappy f2p games
I can't imagine Crysis 4 being a F2P game. I really can't.
Crysis 2 was f2p for all those who pirated it! Oh bah dah boom! i'll be here all week folks, thank you!
He said all their games after their current contracts are fulfilled will be F2P. EA likely have contracted to another Crysis game if 3 isn't the last in the series. So after Crysis and Ryse are done, I guess it's F2P all the way.
Wow Crytek, don't make all your games f2p. I mean, I like to occasionally play Tribes and stuff, but I really don't want games nickel & diming me the whole way through. It gets really really annoying after a while...
In my opinion League of Legends is a prime example on HOW to do F2P right. In most aspects.
Not with EA publishing their games.
Battlefield has 2 f2p variants. There is also a f2p need for speed... so I don't find it hard to believe.
Crytek wouldn't be doing this unless they thought it was more profitable than paying for the game.
@Kamikaze135 remember this? http://www.vg247.com/2011/0...
Really dumb comment. I can understand some, but the regular priced game is still warranted.....like above, he will spend 30 dollars on the game. So why not release games at 30 dollars if they are so willing to sell F2P games at that price? I mean honestly Crysis? I'm one of those people that just want to pay for a game upfront and get it over with. Not the person that wants to hit a wall and suddenly you have to pay to do certain things.
I'm happy to pay 100 bucks so why not sell it for that much? The idea of F2P is that they can reach many millions of players especially in the growing markets in China, Russia, South Korea, India even where F2P is the only viable model. Who would not want to play a Crysis quality game for free.
I love u crytek. You will get my money. Finally a quality game maker that isnt trying to bleed us dry. I platinumed crysis 1&2 and come march i'll platinum part 3!
i suggest playing blacklight retribution until the launch of planetside 2. Its great fun
