Lot of f2p FPS this year on PC , seems a good way forward so long as it does not become pay 2 win.

Tribes Ascend is a good example of the F2P model , pay for faster progression rather than buying exclusive items

Going to be an interesting year :D

I don't mind that happening to multiplayer but for single player I don't think that payment method would work.
