Awesome!! Lots of questions here.. Will it be completely free or will there be micro transations? Are they handling this as a commercial venture? Are they re-working the low quality net-code and poor in-game security that Crytek is known for? How will cheaters be detected and handled? Will it have something like Mumble to handle in-game voip? Are they hoping to do 4km maps also?
Btw, this press release needs to stress the PvP focus of the game. The press release currently comes across as 'yet another fps game' without that mention. But clearly PR is a cut above the rest for PvP as it is so very NOT casual in its gameplay.
Looking forward to learning more and seeing some alpha-footage!
edit: AAS is fun, but Insurgency is where PR really stands out. Hoping for an improved insurgency mode when possible!
Edit 2: Answer as to why it's free:
because in the CE SDK, the Terms say that you cant use it for commercial projcets, unless you purchase the license. and frankly, millions of € ist whet the team has spare
