Damn son, are you dumb? He clearly said that he hopes the game will be free of microtransactions, not that hes looking forward to them.It's an FPS game based on the Unreal Engine 4. And it's going to be free (hopefully of micro transactions too) and moddable. Don't care about the maps, the community will build better, not that bothered about minor kinks in the gameplay either, the community will Mod those straight and add a whole lot more. Looking forward to this
Are you like some kind of console gamer or somebody that only play F2P games that buys the hell out of MicroTransactions? Why would anybody want MicroTransactions. I do understand that if the game is going to be free that it does need to make money but I would so much rather pay for a well made game then have a F2P game that could turn from a P2P to P2W game. We have seen this in games that don't make either enough money to keep the game a float or the company wanting more money to change it to a Pay 2 Win.
I doubt this game will allow mods as most F2P games are hosted on there own servers and there won't be any dedicated servers like in the old days.
"Don't care about the maps, the community will build better"? WTF do you think map making is. Most of the time maps that come from the company will cost you money, but most user created maps don't unless the person asks for donations for this. Most people create other maps as they want something else to play besides the same standard maps.
If it's gonna be a so so game that's free I would rather them not even bother with it. Soon the F2P model will change again as too many people flood the market with crappy F2P games and want better quality. Take for instance MMO's. When everybody saw how much money Blizzard was making EVERYBODY was making MMO's trying to get on the MMO money train. But the problem was there was way too many and most of them were just meh. Some did last longer then others but for most they died quickly. Some died out right while others took to the new F2P model. Even still today companies are still trying to get on that MMO Money Train but very few now do it as a P2P model and just make it F2P but even still most of those F2P you rarely here much about them after they've been released.
Back in the day they made quality games and even now some companies still due but it just lacks quality of games like the original UT or Command & Conquer or Neverwinter Nights. Even Counter Strike. Counter Strike has hardly changed that much and almost to the point on why buy the so called newer ones when it's still the original game. Sure we've added a few new things but it's still the same thing. Granted it's on the more up to date HL engine but yet we've seen like 3 I think Counter Strikes on the HL 2 engine.
