sorry if there is already a thread about this but will there be an online pass for ghost recon future soldier? because if so i will refuse to buy it as of now will be avoiding any game with the online pass
As a company who's selling the game its brilliant idea as they still get money from the second hand market. But as a player it piss you off when you buy a pre-ownd game and forget you have to pay for a online pass.
Nobody actually has said that there will be an online pass, right?
If not, I really doubt they will be doing that. I know EA has been doing this, but I can't think of Ubisoft doing this in any prior games so far. That obviously doesn't mean they won't. Just keep in mind that a good portion of both GR and Rainbow Six DLC has been free. That likley won't continue this time around, but this shows a dedication to keeping their customers happy.
I dont mind buying used games. I just hate that they buy the game from you for 20 bucks then turn around and sell it for $55.00 I refuse to buy a used game for $55 I would rather buy it off craigslist.from a person selling it.
It is a big deal if you want to rent the game first to try it or even share it with another member of the house.
you can still rent games? Wow, all the blockbusters and hollywood videos within a 50 mile radius of me closed almost half a decade ago, and even then only a few of them actually carried games in the first place.
The only multi-player information we have at the moment is this;
Up to 16 players in 8Vs8 matches for a fast-paced, intense online experience Select from 3 classes (Rifleman, Engineer and Scout) and unlock new gear to battle online across 10 maps.
Gain experience and levels, make decisive choices to customize and develop your character.
Gather Intel on your enemies’ positions and share it with your teammates.
Use the new suppression system to pin your enemies down while your teammates flank them.
4 game modes focused on objectives and cooperation, including new exclusives and GR’s classic Siege.
Created by Red Storm, the studio behind the critically acclaimed Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter multiplayer modes.
More multi-player information will be available shortly once Co-op has been covered.
I'll buy it, but I really do not like online passes as they currently stand.
EA justify it on the basis that the servers cost money to run, but if that were true you'd have to renew it. Are they going to keep BF3 going forever for those that bought a pass? Not a chance. It's just a one-off price hike so their argument doesn't stand.
If they start to reduce the cost of buying the game and offset that with how much you use it then that could be a good thing. It would give a company a big incentive to make a really good multiplayer and keep it fresh. I'd even pay a premium for a better tactical game. Perhaps one day they'll give the games away and charge you per hour on line.
No word of an online pass... Assassin's Creed has one, so I assume GR:FS has one. Awesome if it doesn't, but doesn't bother me if it does as I'm getting it anyway. I do hate that these companies have resorted to online passes, but it's never a problem for me to get one, even for used games. You don't have to buy it new to get an online pass for cheap/free.
