Q: Is More Support coming from ND ??

[ Edited ]

if the game goes free to play, you would expect they would increase thier support for the game again, or would you ??

 

 will they then address issues and fix things or is it just a fundraiser ??

 

(if it does go free to play it would be a good idea to also combine all the DLC maps into one pack with a low price, assuming its only default maps that go free to play)

I highly doubt they will fix anything about the game I know Patch 1.16 is coming soon but I'm expecting F2P to be the major thing about the Patch & new colors.

I doubt ND will combine all the Maps for a new low price even though this needs to be done I just get the feeling going F2P is them attempting to milk the game one last time before TLOU.

On another note, a 3-year old game is still receiving support in terms of patches and FREE DLCs:

No, they haven't implemented microtransactions, "tournament" tickets and silly stuff like that.

If F2P is succesful (I doubt it if it's as "free" as the Killzone 3 one) then they will add more useless stuff to make easy money, but I doubt they'll be addressing techincal problems or balance issues.

Yeah, I don't expect any technical fixes either. Just more milking, since that makes financial sense.

Killzone 3 isn't that free to begin with, you can rank up to Sergeant I, and that requires 30250 xp...

 

To put things into perspective, that's 3 matches, 2 if you are good.


1 hour of free playing... not worth it.

 

If we want this to work, Naughty Dog should put the cap on level 24, before they unlock revenge...and then allow them to play the multiplayer infinitely, if they wan't to progress in rank, let them pay..

 

Yes, Killzone 3 f2p version locks you out of the multiplayer after you reach level 10... so it isn't f2p, it's more like a demo..

You haven't been very active on the forums for a long time...

Tappy,

 

I read about some people guessing it would be free to play but do we know this as fact?  This game is well over a year old and if we can get more players onboard and extend the life of the MP, I'm all for it.
