Called free-to-play has a negative connotation and Boss Key does not want to burn here, the studio said in explanation. This is mainly because a lot of free to play games using microtransactions, to deal with the risk towards pay-to-win. The studio will just not that way, reports Eurogamer , who was present at the presentation.
It would also significantly affect the free play model in the way the game was developed. Because the model was to develop too much focus on methods to make money, instead of the focus was on making the best possible game. Although there has to be paid for lawbreakers, it will not sit at the same price point as most new big games. What price the game does inherits Boss Key is not clear. They indicate only that the price somewhere between free-to-play and sixty dollars’ comes to lie.
