6. Re: free-to-play equivalent of Skyrim Mar 29, 2012, 17:12 LemonJoose
It will only be the equivalent of Skyrim in terms of graphics. I do not think there is a free-to-play audience of 200 million for a game like Skyrim because Skyrim's gameplay and backstory are too complex and time consuming for the kind of mainstream audience that could generate a player base of 200 million. To get to 200 million you need a fundamentally different, dumbed-down style of gameplay designed for those with short attention spans. Plus, you will not attract any of the current true hardcore gaming audience with a paid cheating business model where you are constantly nickeled-and-dimed for every meaningful in-game upgrade. You will have to try and find an audience among the crowds of sheep playing Zynga games.
