H1Z1 won’t charge for Battle Royale anytime soon

    
63

After announcing yesterday that it would be offering a $6.99 monthly pass for H1Z1’s Battle Royale mode, Daybreak Game Company said today that it will be holding off on selling that pass for “a good while.”

“We’ve listened to your feedback,” Daybreak President John Smedley posted on Reddit. “It came through loud and clear. From our perspective, we’ve been really super-clear about our plans from even before day one regarding this. What’s also clear though is that you expect more from us in terms of quality level, so that’s what we’re going to do. We’ll focus on bugs, awesome new stuff and adding a ton of features to BR and our main game to make you feel like you’re more than happy to pay for it. Only then will we charge for it.”

Oh yeah people, they’re real greedy huh? Are you kidding me? It’s 20 dollars for an amazing game with some glitches and not only that but it will be FREE TO PLAY when it is complete! So I realize you like BR, I do too, but how else are they going to make money in the future? If you ask me, BR should be free to people who bought it before it goes free to play.

Totally agree. I just bought this game and was loving BR, but after reading about all this I refunded the game on the spot. I’m not going to support this kind of money grubbing, no matter how fun the game is.

The day BR turns to pay to play is the day I stop with BR. BR is fun but no matter how good it is, no matter the quality or what cool stuff it has, I will not pay for it.

No. I will continue to play BR as it is amazingly fun. But as soon as it becomes a pay to play Model I will no longer play the game and I hope you other gamers will do the same.

traditionally yes. Taking a glance at Smedley twitter speak over the last year your point falls off however.

deganderson Sorenthaz  I never said a monthly fee should be required for the whole game.  That would be stupid. But if SOE is going to be greedy and milk players out of a monthly fee in order to get access to a single mode within the game (a move in which I won’t support when it happens, and I hope no one bothers wasting money on), then they better incorporate it into the All Access Pass thing that covers subscriptions for Planetside 2, DCUO, Everquests, etc.
