Since Faeria went buy-to-play it only makes sense that it will need to do the same things B2P games do to attract players. Hilariously, that includes… spending time doing free-to-play weekends to hook people back in. Of course, that also means offering some discounts on the game for those who want to play it past the free-to-play promotion. So, the developers are offering a 50% to 65% discount on the game and its packs. If you haven’t bought the game before, you can pick the main game up for $12.50. Each of the packs can be purchased for $5.60, except the Puzzle Pack elements which will be $2.45. Apparently, if you buy the Bundle, you’ll be able to snag it for $28.56. … [Read more...] about Faeria Offering Free Weekend On Steam – After Ditching F2P Model Last Year

The devs behind Wild West Online have offered up information pertaining to their current faction-based PvP system and a new free trial for new players, accompanying their patch sometime next week. The original iteration of their faction PvP system was released along with the launch of the game onto steam back on May 10th 2018, however, after careful consideration, they have opted to remove it with the upcoming patch due to “unnecessary complexities to gameplay mechanics.” Replacing that is the new “Mcfarlanes vs Steele” form of faction PvP, with Sheriffs vs Outlaw becoming the two new factions in the game. Wild West Online will be launching the next update with the addition of a free trial that will be made available both through their official website and Steam. The free trial will allow players to level all the way up to level 20, experiencing what the game has to offer in a manner equivalent to Final Fantasy XIV and World of Warcraft.

This question is not about World of Warcraft’s upcoming PvP mode switch. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a cool option; you either explore the world safely, or you open up the possibility of danger. That’s a cool trick. But that got me thinking about what other tricks you could use to create a similar environment. For example, imagine if you had a mode in which you didn’t actually receive loot or other rewards until you successfully returned to a certain point on the map. Sure, you might get more rewards, but if you died on your way back somewhere that would be it. Or imagine if you had a higher chance of gathering rare resources but less chance of successfully gathering in a game like Final Fantasy XIV. Of course, some people would argue that these start stretching the definition of “challenge modes” and mostly would provide the possibility of intense frustration. What do you think, readers?
