SOE's new zombie MMO H1Z1 to be free-to-play

It won't be pay-to-win either

Sony Online Entertainment has revealed their intentions for monetizing their upcoming zombie MMO H1Z1.

As SOE has already seen decent success taking games like Planetside and DC Universe Online free-to-play and H1Z1 will follow on their lead.

SOE's John Smedley has also promised that they will not be making the mistake of building a game that is pay-to-win. SOE's new zombie MMO H1Z1 to be free-to-play

“We will be selling wearables. We felt like this will be a good, fair revenue generator. However - we recognize how important finding wearables in the world is so you'll be able to find and craft a lot of stuff,” Smedley explained on Reddit. “We agree that's something important. We will NOT be selling Guns, Ammo, Food, Water... i.e. That's kind of the whole game and it would suck in our opinion if we did that.”

Thanks PC Gamer.

We need to talk... about 'gamers'
Because that term has a much wider definition than it used to.
