Evolve has evolved into a Free-To-Play game on PC

Head back just over a year ago and you might recall all of the media (including us) losing our heads about the possibilities that Evolve might have.

That unfortunately did not go as well as planned as just about no one bought and played the online-only game....

Fable Legends Beta Delayed

I have not been shy to say that I think Fable Legends looks pretty terrible, but I have been wrong before (don’t let my wife know). Contrary to my thoughts, Lionhead seem really upbeat about the Free-to-Play game’s release. There was meant to be a beta releasing now, but they have delayed it until next year claiming that they want to make it EVEN better. So if you have been looking for...

WildStar is going Free-to-Play this year

A few weeks ago a Steam Database listing caused some rumours that WildStar was going to Steam and going Free-to-Play, Now, the game has been confirmed as going free to play in autumn (our spring). WildStar launched last year and dwindling subscriber counts and team layoffs resulted in a couple seasonal in-game community updates being cancelled, which is pretty sad. Going the free to play route mig...
