I wonder if this will end up free to play.
Depends if the microtransactions in the game are "mandatory" enough to buy and which enhances gameplay to a certain degree.
why would it not? they already got a store in game, they just need people to play to get people to buy their garbage. simple as that and if the game is selling at 15 20 bucks already you could not do worse to slap a free to play label on it other than the pr flack of doing it so soon after release.
they got two options with the game well three, if they want to save the game they keep working on it, they can try no mans sky or destiny it and keep patching it till it wins its meager playerbase over, and gets a second chance at life. free to play allows players to drop in and drop out, and with a few whales can net you more money in sales than selling heavily discounted units. or they can cut their losses and bail out.
i think it will go free to play in a few months, the game will keep dropping in value until that one "miracle" update drops that fixes everything, and they do not have a great track record when it comes to patching their games period.
delicious irony that this could have the potential to force them to see that their engine is garbage and needs a redo. since they are now forced to work on 76 in all likelihood. which is jamming network code on an ancient and archaic engine.
Looks like at some point there were going to be some sort of loot box ("Lunch box"). It's unsure if this was pulled or if it was intended to be implemented later on.
Sorry your crappy cash cow didn't pan out BSG. Everyone wants a piece of dem' whales these days.
None, i am waiting until i think the games price has gone as low as possible, i have gave it a £9.99 limit, then i will grab the xbox version and take that hit for 10 quid, because there is no point spending any more while the games price is in freefall across all the formats, it is all about grabbing it now at the lowest price. Lol
I was mighty tempted to to pick it up at £15 today, but I'm going to hold out a little longer.
I''ll add you if I pick it up in the next few days.
This game literally couldn't look less interesting. I didn't even finish Fallout 4 because it got boring grinding those XP. I am a huge fan of Skyrim though.
£15.69 at cdkeys right now for the pc version, plus if you go to their facebook page you can get 3% extra off code.
I thought you already had it, I fee lied too.
*stares off into the distance*
With the single player games, I never really even consider XP. Just play the games with the story or what play style I enjoy most, and level up the skills I want as I go along.
well i saw some user reviews last night, after the latest big patch. also browsed this topic
and saw what people say about the game.
it looks to me like the final product is passable. i will wait for Starfield\ES6 and continue with PUBG for a while.
thanks for the help.
Another day another price drop, cdkey are now selling the pc version for £13.57 right now, and you can get a 3% off code from their face book page.
It is getting close to me grabbing a copy, but we shall see who low it can go. Lol
And on the very same site you can grab F4 Goty for £12.99.
This is a bit like being a stock trader.
No, wait, wait. A little bit longer.
^^^Yeap, i think the game is in a catch 22 situation now, such quick price drops are stopping people buying the game as they wait to see how far it drops in price. Lol
That means Fallout 76 is now cheaper than a white paint texture for the power armor, that's kind of funny.
They really should make it free to play if the mods.......... I mean microtransactions are priced as much as full games.
Here is the way I look at it.
How much are you willing to pay for a broken game.
Me? Not much.
Plus it's a loot and shoot with no story.
And if the servers go down, you ain't playing.
Doesn't matter how much you paid.
^^I had set myself a £9.00 limit for this game for the xbox retail version, just because if it does go FTP then i can al least trade the disc in towards something else, no matter how little i got, but at this stage and the way it is dropping i have now moved my price even lower just because of how quickly it is dropping across the board. lol
Destiny 2 was on Humble Monthly and even had to be given away for free and that's a much better game. Save your money
^^I got D2 free with my GTX1080, or did i, considering the cost of a GTX1080. lol
