View Full Version : Is "free to play" the next step for For Honor?

Eventually monthly sales will be so low there is no good reason for Ubisoft to not make For Honor free to play. Maybe it actually hit that "magic" sales number already, but going free to play now would probably enrage the fragments of the community that is left. My guess is September 2017. :nonchalance:

For the community, the benefits of For Honor going free to play would be that the player base would be bolstered. Something that is much needed. With how much is hard to tell though. The population number seems to follow f(x) = 1/x up until now, at least according Steam. I'm guessing it is more or less the same for consoles. I actually think F2P would do the game good, but all the issues with disconnections will have to be addressed before that...

For Ubisoft a larger community would probably increase revenue through micro transactions. How can they say no to that? :cool:

If For Honor goes free to play, what would your reaction be?

If For Honor goes free to play, do you think people who bought the game should get some sort of in game compensation?

Gauntlet hit ps4 in 2015 and still costs 15 bucks. I realllly doubt for honor will be free anytime soon.

Considering the small boost of population with Season 2 is already gone away, it might be the logical thing to do.

Let's be honest they will never sell a new copy ever again, IF (a big if) anyone new buys the game it will be a hand down from gamespot. Retailers here dont even take Preowned For Honors anymore, since the ones they have dont sell.

So they lose nothing by going F2P, but might get moneythrough microtransactions; and of course player numbers are not a delight for a multiplayer only teambased game.

If Absolver holds what it promises, prices could drop but I don't believe it will ever be FtP. Is there even any UBI FtP title?

I don't know actually. Some title will have to be the first though.

Actually, yes. And you do too, every time you buy a game high-budget multiplayer game pretty much. That's how it is for most games these days.

The will win a lot more of money making it free to play rather than keeping it as a 60$ game, why?

Because this game has a really high ammount of cosmetics and emotes that people BUY, the game has ALREADY a F2P economy so they only need to make it free to play (the actual cost of the emotes for a 60$ game WE ALREADY PAID its too much, but for F2P its ok)

Regarding the compensation for people that bought the game: Founders edition, all the new dlc characters (or the new characters but at a reduced cost, and season pass dlc buyers at free)

This game has a lot of potential if they make it F2P and also that will save the game since the P2P connections rely too much on distance between the players (and F2P has A LOT more players than a 60$ game)

free to play or not.
The question is probably rather, who wants to play this broken ****.

Absolver? That game looks nothing like For Honor.

This game has problems, but we're not going to find a skillful replacement in absolver.

This game is a joke. The GODs Revival Plan for a joke game like this is to:

- Make it Free to Play.
-Add Dedicated Servers for Necessary modes.
- Balance characters accordingly.

Even with D GODs Revival Plan this game has only a mere 1% of revival. Game is beyond hope.

Im thinking the plan is to just finish the season pass and then move on.

Even if it were free, people would download, play until they get disconnected (wasting their time spent on the game) all the time and uninstall.

I doubt it. Mainly because it's not set up for it. Ftp usually has paywalled dlc or a large grind. This has neither. It will just go on sale cheaper and cheaper.

Fh feels like a $20 game to me atm.

And you would be right. Closing this thread due to off topic, offensive discussion and flaming.
