    So, i pay 60 euros for a AAA game with locked content and i have to be thankful for the fact that i "only" need 24 hours of game play in order to unlock said content ?

    Sod off.
    In the past publishers charged you full price for a game then if you wanted to play beyond the first 30 days you had to pay an additional fee.

    I'm honestly surprised at the MMO community being in shock at a practice they've been supporting (Not loot boxes/microtransactions, the idea that it's ok to keep charging a gamer a fee to play a game they've already purchased) for nearly 20 years.
    Except MMO's are completely different. You were paying monthly to get support for the game for as long as it is up. Server costs, keeping a dev team working on the game with patches and updates, and basically paying for any support the game is still getting. With other games you don't usually get continued support unless it is released in the form of an expansion or DLC. 
    Todays MMO's prove they can do all that even without a mandatory subscription. Or even a box price.
    By offering extremely large cash shops and pay to win features.

    since it's going to be rebuilt from the ground up
    ...that is a fact now?
    If they are hiring to rebuild portions of the game, I can see at least a bit of truth to that being a fact.

  • PWE shuts down Runic, Motiga

    That's the problem with taking the offer of having a major publisher above your company that owns a stake in your company. You can just get shut down any time they aren't bringing in expected amounts. It's awful. I feel really bad for the people at runic, I hope they find new homes somewhere better.
