New BioWare F2P Announcement Nears

It's announcement of an announcement time, as Computer and Video Games has word that BioWare is preparing to unveil a new free-to-play game tomorrow, saying this was confirmed by studio general manager, Eugene Evans. They express suspicions this may be based on a classic EA franchise, but do not explain the reason for this hypothesis.

R.I.P Bioware

Anyone ever played any F2P game that was actually good? That isn't World of Tanks?

Seriously? Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeon and Dragons Online, Team Fortress 2, League of Legends, Tribes...

You may not like it, or even have a personal dislike for those particular games, but they are examples of quality productions that a huge population of gamers play and enjoy. The whole "F2P = Games that suck" thing is about as old and used as "cool story bro" and "gnarly man".

Of course, that said.....Bioware is on the decline and any announcement they make should be looked at with a very cynical eye. Not because it is F2P, but because it is EA and Bioware.
