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

Amazingmrbrock2180d ago

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.

PockyKing2180d ago

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. =/

MrMister2179d ago

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

STONEY42180d ago

I can't imagine Crysis 4 being a F2P game. I really can't.

ATi_Elite2180d ago

Crysis 2 was f2p for all those who pirated it!

Oh bah dah boom!

i'll be here all week folks, thank you!

Tachyon_Nova2179d ago

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.

shackdaddy2180d ago (Edited 2180d ago )

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...

AdmiralSnake2180d ago

In my opinion League of Legends is a prime example on HOW to do F2P right. In most aspects.

Kamikaze1352180d ago

Not with EA publishing their games.

Ducky2180d ago

Battlefield has 2 f2p variants. There is also a f2p need for speed... so I don't find it hard to believe.

annus2180d ago

Crytek wouldn't be doing this unless they thought it was more profitable than paying for the game.
