Is this gonna be a F2P games?

Blackdeath_6631711d ago

yes it's free to play and won't require a ps+ membership to play either so its genuinely F2P unlike what some other people claim is F2P *cough* WOT *cough*

Matt Higby said that it was more of a logistic reason because they have to get the updates through the approval process and so the updates would be out of sync between PC and PS4 but they will essentially be the same game and that having PS4 and PC gamer's playing together is technically possible

Logisitcs and pitting people with controllers against those with keyboards and mice wouldn't be the fairest!

It doesn't really matter though as I'm sure it will be great on the PS4. I've put 250 hours+ into the PC version and it demolishes the likes of Battlefied.

'Maybe but if people want it then they should implement it, maybe they should give the controller players the advantage of having the snap to hit box that they implement on the single player games to make it easier for players with controllers and see what happens :) '

I wouldn't mind console players joining in as the more the merrier and so on, but wouldn't favour auto aiming as it would cause much rage amongst PC users about legalising aimbots and so on.

Could make it support keyboard and mouse on the PS4 so if you are sick of getting beaten with a controller you could switch. I'ld say most console users have a KB & M lying about somewhere afterall!

Yeah actually that's a better solution :)

He also said they are looking into being able to move your character to a PS4 account if you already have one on PC
