    That's a $#@!ing awesome looking game, can't believe it's also F2P. I will be going balls deep in this and PS2 when they hit.

    It's a clever approach, giving non-subbers access to such games. Planetside 2 and DCUO are confirmed infront of paywall but it's down to the publishers. From what this guy said about avoiding paywalls, I'd say that's a hint for this to join those ranks. DUST 514 will also be the same.

    Don't we require ps+ to play online on ps4? If so ps+ will be required, had ps+ from the start so doesn't make any difference to me

    It seems Sony is keeping free-to-play F2P. Two games are already confirmed to not need PS+.

    this game looks better and better every time i see it

    i noticed some of the faux physics (voxel stuff?) was being added to the explosions and particles so its good to see the devs actually using the PS4 hardware the way it was meant.

    i hope Sony doesn't put the paywall in place for F2P games. i've been playing Dust for months now and i paid near enough retail price during Beta, and more now that its out, but as was mentioned in the video, im of the thinking that no barriers are the best policy. especially in todays day and age where everyone is connected in some form.
    i like to be able to tell someone to pick it up and they can start immediately.

    This looks good. What kind of game is this? I get confused with ftp, is the game free? or is there no monthly fees?

    its Free 100%

    the only thing in question is whether you need a PS+ subscription as it was outlined by jack that online multiplayer was part of the package now.....which defeats the purpose of free to play if im being honest...

    The guy in the vid said he was about removing as many paywalls as possible...I'm wagering that most F2P games will remain truly F2P.

    yup, its an MMO (in a sense)

    the lines between genres are being blurred now. we're at a crossover point in the industry

    they make money based on microtransactions, i can only speak first hand for Dust, but i imagine it will be a similar business model elsewhere.

    The MT model will be like DUST 514...paying to progress at a faster rate. The dude said that everything is purchasable by playing the game too...like DUST.
